Guide for SnorkellersWhilst Lizard Island offers a variety of snorkelling for the novice through to the very experienced, it is also important to highlight the following points to ensure an enjoyable and safe experience. Snorkelling and swimming is permitted off any beach, however the Lagoon area is restricted by the tides. Tide times are posted on the Activities Board at the Beach Club and briefs on restrictions are always given before any organised snorkel activity. Watch your buoyancy so that you do not drag your fins on the coral and never stand on the coral. Do not snorkel or swim alone or out of sight to family and friends. Snorkelling is generally a safe activity, however this exercise can aggravate certain medical conditions such as asthma and heart conditions. You should only participate in the activity with this understanding.
