What you'll do
June-August UPDATE: Unfortunately the water and weather is too cold for me during our winter now so I won’t be available during these months, but I will see you in September! :) Please enquire if your preferred date or time is unavailable! Safety I swim across the bay every morning before snorkeling, checking water conditions for safety and visibility, and to see where all the fish are! I’m a former surf lifesaver with 6 years experience and I’ll be with you all the time if you need help. See and Learn We'll go straight to where conditions are best with the most to see. Snorkel with some of the 180+ species of fish I have photographed and identified here over 10 years of marine photography. I’ll be pointing out everything I see as some species are very well camouflaged! I'll tell you all about their fascinating lives. Photography With my top-end waterproof camera I’ll be taking photos throughout the snorkel and sending them to you for free! If we have time afterwards for a coffee I'd love to join you!

I’m a Manly local, volunteer conservationist and passionate underwater photographer. I swim every day in Manly's Aquatic Reserve, where I'll be taking you! Over the years I have photographed and identified 180+ species of marine animals right here in Manly. As a surf lifesaver for 6 years, I achieved high qualifications in safety including the Advanced Resuscitation Certificate. I'm a lifelong surfer and try to find time to surf at Manly Beach every day too.

Where you'll be
We'll be in the beautiful beachfront town of Manly. If you are travelling from the city, you will take the Manly Ferry here, which itself is recognised as a must-do Sydney experience. Manly has one of the most compact underwater ecosystems in the whole world, with more species of fish recorded here than in the entire Mediterranean Sea! This is Sydney's premier snorkeling spot and home to Australian native species found nowhere else in the world!
