About Me

In March last year I went on a road trip from Perth to Broome and back.  On the way back I called into Cape Range National Park and Coral Bay for few nights each.

 I badly injured my knee at Cape Range and spent the rest of that day pottering about in the shallows at Turquoise Bay - I only had an old mask and a snorkel that was just a mouthpiece and a bit of PVC pipe.  Still, I was gobsmacked by being able to wade up to a chunk of coral, stick my head under the water with my mask on, and see the most spectacular fish RIGHT THERE!

Two days later at Coral Bay I booked myself in for a day snorkeling trip.  I had never done actual proper snorkeling before AND I was tending a dodgy knee, but I quickly discovered the beauty of swimming is that it doesn't put any weight on my bad knees.  We dove at two parts of the reef and spent an hour or so chasing Manta Rays, eventually we were lucky enough to have about 10 rays all lazily rolling over underneath us as they fed.

 Needless to say, I was hooked.  A few days after getting back to Perth I bought a snorkel set from a local camp store, but my knee prevented me from entering the water easily as the beach, it was nigh impossible in fins, not to mention the weather was rapidly cooling down.

 This summer however my knee is considerably better.  I have two friends who are also keen divers and they were quite delighted to discover that our usual swimming spot - the sheltered Hamersley Pool, was also a spectuacular snorkeling spot, complete with resident eagle rays.

My first set of fins have since broken, but I've invested in a much better pair.  I've so far snorkeled at Hamersley Pool, nearby Mettam's Pool and Cottesloe Groyne and all 2 places have been amazin.  This weekend we're heading to Point Peron/Marmion Marine Park, which should be great.

 I'm pretty lucky to live in Perth, where there are plenty of good snorkeling spots nearby, and not too far abroad are places like Busselton Jetty, the Albany wrecks and of course Coral Bay. 

I'm currently snorkeling at least once every weekend, but if a friend is able to come along, I'm out at any opportunity.

Once I have a job/money again I'm sure I'll get into Scuba diving too.  I haven't been so excited about a new hobby in ages.
