Is snorkelling good in Australia?

Is it safe to snorkel in Australia?

Snorkelling in Australia is, for the most part, safe. While you may be concerned about the creatures that call the country’s waterways home, from sharks to crocodiles, chances are that you won’t encounter them during your dive. As with any activity, however, it’s recommended that you remain aware of your surroundings and listen to your tour instructor's advice.

It’s a good idea to keep marine stingers, such as jellyfish, in mind as you snorkel. Although not all stings are overly dangerous, they may be painful and uncomfortable. If you’re joining a snorkelling tour in an area where marine stingers are found, your instructor will talk you through what to look out for and what to do if you have been stung.

As with most other water-based activities, it’s essential to have basic swimming skills if you plan to go snorkelling. If you feel your swimming skills aren’t overly strong or you don’t feel comfortable swimming in open waters, another activity, such as a whale watching cruise or a sightseeing cruise, could be a better fit.
