Amazing Snorkelling in the Cocos Islands

Episode: 6
Title: Amazing Snorkelling in the Cocos Islands
Broadcast: 3rd September 2017
Presenter: Chrissy Morrissy

Chrissy wakes up early to enjoy an amazing Coco’s Islands snorkelling adventure.

  • Before Chrissy ventures out she goes to the visitor’s centre as they know all the best snorkelling spots and it’s also the place where you hire snorkelling gear.
  • Most snorkelling adventures on Coco’s start on trannies beach, which is straight off the beach and very shallow, so it’s an easy and great place to practice your snorkelling technique.
  • The second spot is accessible from the bottom of the west island by foot at low tide.
  • A quick wade across to the next island and you will come to the blue holes, which are big holes filled with fish. As the tide goes out the fish get trapped and it creates an aquarium.
  • The third spot is accessible by a twice weekly 30-minute ferry ride from the west island and takes you to direction island. It’s home to ‘the rip’, it’s a bit of a rocky entry but has amazing sea life.
