Hamilton Island Snorkel Tour - FAQs
What reef location do you visit?
Is it still worth visiting the Great Barrier Reef?
What is the underwater visibility like?
What can I expect to see on this snorkel tour?
Is the reef all bleached?
For our half day Hamilton Island dive and snorkel tours we cruise our way to the northern section of Hook Island to explore some fringing reefs. Should the conditions here not be favourable we may relocate to Blue Pearl Bay or Cateran Bay.
The visibility out at the reef changes every day dependent on the prevalent weather conditions.
During the peak summer months you can expect an average of 5-8m around the inner fringing reef.
The winter months typically see visibility well in excess of averages due to lower tidal ranges
The Whitsunday Island fringing inner reef tends to be slightly more colourful due to the nature of the soft coral that grows around these areas.
You will find numerous smaller reef-dwelling fish such as parrotfish, angelfish, batfish, damselfish and fusiliers. If you're lucky you might even get a visit from a turtle, ray or white tip reef shark whilst on one of our trips!
Our water temperatures sit between 22-28 degrees Celsius all year round, making for ideal coral conditions.
