Getting around by bicycle is a great way to explore the island of Lord Howe’s spectacular landscape. However, another popular way to discover all that the island has to offer is by experiencing one of the many Lord Howe boat tours that circumnavigate this World Heritage listed island.

Tourists can choose from several different boating tours, with each one boasting a special feature to lure visitors.

Boat tours on Lord Howe Island

One of the most famous tours around Lord Howe is operated by Island Cruises, which offers several different tour options for guests. Families will adore the North Bay Nature and Turtle Tour and Glassbottom Boat Tour.

Visitors can witness unspoiled views of the dazzling reef system and its unique marine species through both tours. Numerous snorkelling opportunities are also available.

Another popular company providing Lord Howe boat tours is Marine Adventure. Guests can easily charter a glass-bottomed boat through this reliable firm.

Couples can enjoy a romantic sunset cruise, while families can spend the day viewing sea turtles and fish species in their natural reef habitats.

Luluwai is also popular among tourists. This private boating company provides one of the largest cruisers on the island, not to mention Lord Howe’s most scenic boat tour.

Tourists will experience the famous North Cave, Admiralty Isles, and enjoy fantastic views of Balls Pyramid from the boat. All tours upon the Luluwai last for two hours.

In addition to fishing trips, the MV Carina takes passengers upon a three-hour boat tour of Lord Howe Island.
