The Whitsundays underwater world is exciting and beautiful and there are many pristine locations to experience life under the sea. However, snorkelling can be a strenuous activity, even in calm water, and may increase health and safety risks for some people. Follow the guidelines outlined by Queensland Government so your experience is safe and memorable.
Snorkels and masks (including prescription masks as required) can be hired for a small fee. Fins are free for all guests and can be collected on arrival. If collecting from an island resort, advise fin sizes in advance so they can be loaded on to your vessel. We supply stinger suits and 1mm wet suits, depending on the time of year. We recommend you hire these items, mainly for UV protection. You're also welcome to bring your own equipment and in-the-water sun protection gear.
We share the 10 best snorkelling spots in the Whitsundays on our blog.
Excellent visibility and warm water make the Whitsunday Islands a scuba diver's paradise. Book a course in the Whitsundays before you set sail and put your new skills into practice.
If you'd prefer to hire your own scuba diving equipment, Aqua Dive at Abell Point Marina has everything you need. It also provides a map showing some of the best dive spots and the locations of air tank filling facilities around the islands. Equipment can be collected from Aqua Dive prior to your charter.
