Magnetic Island is an amazing and unique place to have a safe snorkel. There are colourful fringing reef systems teaming with life just off the shores.

These trails are marked by white buoys and information cards can be bought at many stores on Magnetic Island including Magnetic adventure and hire at 36 Mandalay Avenue.
