  • We waited the peak of the tide, as recommended by the guides and then a nice dip with the mask in the midst of many fish and small jellyfish similar to ghosts transparent and not urticanti! A short distance away are the dolphins... Only downside the many people though in fact a few in the water! Recommended a mutino for the "fresh" water temperature

  • The Fly Point Marine Park is an excellent spot for snorkelling. The best time to snorkel is at high tide. There are lots of fish to see. A must do for anyone who likes to snorkel.  more »

  • Best kept secret in Nelson bay for snorkeling and swimming. Always busy so go according to the rides, high tide being the better choice. There's toilets and showers here and a park with covered seating and plenty of parking
  • We dived about 2 hrs after high water and found the current very strong. We therefore only dived near the shore in shallow water. Lots of fish and sea weed. Nice place to dive but we need to go at slack water
  • Great diving and snorkeling
  • Beautiful spot, bit windy and seas choppy today which reduced visibility however still a wonderful area to snorkel or swim.
  • Great for snorkelling
