Cruise with me, baby!
One thing you can expect from Tweed Heads is glimmering waters, and with that comes incredible cruises from the southern end of the Gold Coast to the Tweed River, to Terranora Lakes.

You’ll even love the charmingly aged boats packed with loads of character. Here are some of the exciting cruises available:
- Tweed River Cram Catching Cruise – enjoy a freshly cooked lunch on board and try your hand at catching the elusive mud crab.

From Cook Island to Nine Mile, the Tweed Sea Sports is arguably the best company to dive with. Everybody from beginners to seasoned divers love the shop in Machinery Drive as the diving community there is friendly and always up for a chat about their experiences. This sort of community feel is all thanks to the owner Pete and his incredible staff. This fun bunch of people won’t hold back with giving you the most interesting dive stories while assessing your dive competency and giving you a run down on safety. They’ll adjust the dive based on your endurance, experience, and skill to ensure maximum safety and fun.
Expect to see massive sea turtles, an incredible variety of colourful fish, a myriad of corals, a few crustaceans, the occasional leopard shark in the summer and grey nurse shark in the winter.
If you want to see more and go on more challenging dives, they offer diving certifications and training as well. You won’t regret driving with TSS. They provide great equipment, organised schedules, friendly and professional service, and each of the staff is trained not just in diving but also in emergency first response so you’re sure to have not just loads of fun but also the safety you need and deserve.
