SNORKELLING


The Scuba Doctor is one of the largest retailers and mail order suppliers of snorkeling gear, including new Snorkels, Snorkel Masks, Snorkel Fins, Snorkel Sets and Packages, plus Snorkel Bags, in Melbourne and Australia. The best combination of top brands, quality service, vast selection, knowledgeable staff and everyday low pricing.

Snorkelling sets can either come as a manufacturer prepackaged mask and snorkel set (with or without fins), or a set we have customised to combine different features that will suit specific snorkellers' needs. For example, if you are a nervous snorkeller then perhaps you would want to spend the extra dollars for a completely dry snorkel with a float at the top that greatly minimises the amount of water that gets into the snorkel, or if you are a comfortable snorkeller then this feature is probably an overkill.

With our knowledge over the years we have tried to combine some of the best snorkelling equipment features and price to make your life easier when it comes to choosing!

For quality child and junior snorkelling gear, please see Kids Corner.

If you need to learn a little more on snorkelling gear and want to choose the best option, please read our Trusted Snorkelling Advice articles. For advice on looking after your snorkelling gear please see Equipment Care and Maintenance.

Level: Open Water and beyond.

Point Bunbury is a nice site for diving and snorkelling on Victoria's Otway Coast at Apollo Bay. It lies south of the Apollo Bay Golf Course and separates Apollo Bay and Mounts Bay. Point Bunbury points east-south-east and is exposed to swell from the south and south-west.

The Apollo Bay Harbour and Borrow Beach lie on the northern side of Point Bunbury.

On the southern side is Point Bunbury Beach, a south facing beach suitable for diving and snorkelling with an irregular shaped reef along its shore. Point Bunbury Beach is a 500 metre long strip of sand backed by a low dune and the golf course, and fronted by a continuous rock platform and reefs. The beach is awash at high tide while the platform is exposed at low tide. To the west he beach ends at the mouth of the Barham River in Mounts Bay.

Both sides of Point Bunbury make for interesting dives as you explore the series of small reefs.

Eastern Maar country
Eastern Maar country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Eastern Maar people of south-western Victoria between the Shaw and Eumerella Rivers and from Yambuk in the south to beyond Lake Linlithgow in the north. This truly ancient Country extends as far north as Ararat and encompasses the coastal townships of Port Fairy in the west, Warrnambool, Peterborough, Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, Lorne, and Airies Inlet in the east, including the Great Ocean Road area. It also stretches 100 metres out to sea from low tide and therefore includes the iconic Twelve Apostles. "Eastern Maar" is a name adopted by the people who identify as Maar, Eastern Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung, Peek Whurrong, Kirrae Whurrung, Kuurn Kopan Noot and/or Yarro waetch (Tooram Tribe) amongst others. We wish to acknowledge the Eastern Maar as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
