Snorkeling can be very much an adventurous activity to do, especially when it is in the ocean of Sydney and looking for Sydney escort tours. It is famous for its beautiful waterways and marine life, armed with a snorkel, a mask and a good pair of flippers. One can check out a huge range of fish, coral and more around the harbor city’s many snorkeling spots. Even within Sydney Harbour, there are some great spots for snorkeling.
There are no tropical reefs around, though there is still an amazing array of sea-life as well as a few shipwrecks which are good for scuba diving. There are over 600 species of sea life in the harbor and a great number of locations around for snorkeling and scuba diving. Just around crowded tourist beaches, and close to North Head and Fairy Bower, we can find pretty Shelley Beach and Cabbage Tree Bay; a protected marine reserve and a safe, easy spot for first-time divers to take the plunge.
Scuba schools operate out of here for that very reason, to give the client the training before starting the snorkeling. There’s also an old submerged motorbike wreck to check out in the middle of the bay. Flanked by tall rocky headlands and sheltered by a breakwater, Clovelly Beach’s natural rock pool has a reputation among Sydney siders as the best snorkeling spot in town.
This tranquil inlet is a bit like a giant aquarium and a good spot to check out toadfish, scaly fin, kelpfish, starfish, and sponges. Other great Snorkeling areas in Sydney include Gordon’s Bay, also in Clovelly. South of Clovelly Beach and no of Coo gee, the Bay is protected by an off-shore reef and with its crystal clear waters; it’s considered an ideal site for beginners and families. Expect to spot everything from starfish and anemones to gropers, spotted goatfish, cuttlefish and baby sharks. On calm days we can experience great snorkeling around the rock pool at the north end of the beach.
Little Bay in Port Botany is home to large and colorful anemones and black urchins, and Ship rock Road in Port Hacking is worth visiting at high tide, when the currents make snorkeling safer. Cong Wong Beach in La Perouse is another great spot to check out Sydney’s underwater world, as is nearby Bare Island; we can easily spot around footbridge, Sea-horses, weedy sea dragons, moray eels, velvet fish and giant cuttlefish. Just to be aware one should know the dangers of snorkeling. It would include entanglement, sunburn, boats, dehydration, surge/waves, currents and tides in some areas. Marine life presents very little possibility of risk, and if they do it is because they are being defensive.
Oysters are nasty if washed into rocks or swimming near pylons (Chowder Bay). But apart from all the pros and cons whether this is our 1st or 100th underwater experience we are guaranteed to see some spectacular sea life. We should try it out once in our lives to give it an enchanting experience of underwater adventure.
