Terrific spot that. I was there last August, walked into a dive centre and for just 10 bucks was fitted up with snorkeling gear to use all afternoon! Entered at a couple of beaches and was spotting heaps of fish on the reefs, including a juicy looking coral trout just 20m from the beach.

if you go there for a holiday and you don't want to go on a charter stay in picnic bay see if you can see any fish around the jetty if you can try there through the day and 1 hour before sunset go to the rocks on the side with the railing and use squid or prawns i've found that their is sharks so you keep getting cut but on a metal lleader and catch the shark and then it will leave you alone.
