    • Hi,

      Underwater animals you’ll see at Turquoise Bay:
      – all sorts of tropical fish, parrotfish being the most noticeable, plus wrasses, butterfly fish, triggerfish, sergeants, north west snapper, and many more
      – turtles are common!
      – black-tip reef sharks
      – small sting rays, especially the blue spotted fantail rays

      And on land in the Cape Range NP (but most likely not right on the Turquoise Bay beach!):
      – emus
      – kangaroos
      – perenties
      – other lizards
      – snakes
      – euros
      – rock wallabies

    • Hello Kent,

      You will see plenty of marine life at Turquoise Bay no matter what the tide is doing. However, it’s recommended you time your snorkeling the Turquoise Bay Drift for low/incoming tide, as a smaller volume of water flowing out through the narrow gap in the reef means the current is weaker, and therefore safer. Big waves crashing on the outer reef is another sign that the current might be strong.

      It’s not necessarily dangerous to snorkel when the current’s a bit stronger than usual, but of course that depends on your abilities and experience with swimming and snorkeling. And it always pays to be cautious and take care with the current no matter how strong a swimmer you are.
