Snorkelling within Turquoise Bay is quite rewarding and easy - a perfect spot for beginners to practice their skills. Currents don't usually exist in the bay, but always check conditions to be sure.
Turquoise Bay drift snorkel
The drift snorkel is considered to be one of the best snorkelling experiences in this area of the Ningaloo Reef.
Voted 4th in the 101 Best Australian Beaches by Tourism Australia’s Beach Ambassador, Dr Brad Farmer, Turquoise Bay is the ideal beach to just sit back, relax and soak up the beautiful surroundings and sunshine.
The white, sandy shores give way to stunning coral reef gardens just metres from the shore. Enter the water at the southern end of the beach and let the current take you over the reef for a fantastic snorkelling experience. Exit the water before you reach the north point of the sandbar.
Caution: Please ensure you have obtained tide information before entering the drift snorkel. Currents can be strong at Turquoise Bay; be sure to get out of the water well before the northern point of the beach. Snorkelling is not recommended for weak swimmers. Fins are recommended to assist in exiting the water.
