Even with a 3m swell and a light sea breeze, the water here was very clear as it’s quite protected by the outer reef. The shore is predominately very rocky so walk 50m south and you will find a small area that opens up to...More

Ok. So the important advice is to walk the extra 100m south so that you can enter/exit the water safely and easily from the beach. When we first arrived we did what everyone else was doing - we braved the rocks to get in and...More

oyster stacks is special since the coral is so close to the surface of the sea, but you have to be careful while entering the water via the rocks. once in there fish and coral are plentiful.

Wonderful afternoon snorkeling here. Rocky shoreline takes some getting into and out of but well worth it with abundant coral reef and fish right off the shore.

Fastastic snorkelling but need to make sure you check tide times and not snorkel at mid to low tide. Saw octopi, moorish idols and thousands of beautiful fish

Visited Oyster Stacks as part of a day of snorkelling on Ningaloo Reef during a visit in April 2018. There is no beach at this site, rather a rocky shoreline from which you access the water. Oyster Stacks is best visited during high tide as...More

This is a tidal reef so you should check with Discovery Centre for the best time to dive. We've seen lots of fish, some little sharks (no dangerous apparently) and a few rays. It's easy to do snorkeling. Definitely, this is a beautiful place, quite...More

sorry for the late reply but definitely further down you should be fine. For us Oyster stacks was the best snorkeling spot in Cape Range.
