What you'll do

Autumn update: One of me fave times to snorkel!Water is warmer and full of tropical species coming with East Australian Current. Schools of baitfish, mado and colourful hulafish in abundance! Lots of common stingarees have been spotted and breeding season for banjo sharks (harmless amazing creatures) yay! Join the highest rated snorkelling Experience in Sydney! We're going to discover the underwater world by floating above the marine sanctuary in Manly which is full of life and colours. I'll be by your side the entire time to make sure you feel safe and comfortable as we observe all the beautiful marine species. I will identify the different fish you'll see and will take high resolution photos with a GoPro 7 (additional cost) so that you can focus on enjoying the Experience! The bay is a marine sanctuary which means ecosystem is working perfectly and marine life won’t scare you, I'll also teach you to respect it. Once you have booked your preferred day and time I will check the weather forecast, tide, swell and wind conditions. If your date/time is flexible, I may recommend a different day in order to ensure that you experience the best snorkelling conditions. P.S: If you are not a confident swimmer or if you want a private tour, please book here: airbnb.com/privatesnorkeltour For more info @snorkellingshellybeach

Where you'll be

I'll catch ya in the iconic Manly Beach. From the city, you will take the ferry here, which itself is recognised as a must-do Sydney experience (more details given once you book it) Manly has one of the most compact underwater ecosystems in the whole world, with more species of fish recorded here than in the entire Mediterranean Sea! This is Sydney's premier snorkeling spot and home to Australian native species found nowhere else in the world!
