Here are the dates and details of the Sapphire Coast Marine Society Summer snorkel program. The water is currently 22 degrees C and there are lots of good things to see. Sea Hares seem prolific this year and the annual influx of tropical fish has begun. Sam Nerrie is our very experienced snorkel leader, so you will see lots of interesting species with her. We are adding our sightings and photos into the Atlas of Life database, so you can help us too. Do join us.
