Dive and snorkel trails have interpretive signage to enrich and enhance your underwater journey.

Parker Point Snorkel Trail, Rottnest Island

Parker Point Marine Snorkel Trail is located on the southern side of Rottnest Island. The trail features a number of plaques on the sea bed which allow you to read about the abundant flora and fish life in the area.

The are 12 interpretive plaques, which are detailed on a map before you enter the water. Each plaque has two handles to hang onto whilst you read the information about the surrounding marine life. The water conditions are generally calm, clear and spectacular, allowing superb viewing of the vast array of marine plants and animals and the extensive coral reef.

As the water is a bit deeper and the swim area larger, the more experienced snorkeler would enjoy this trail, whilst less confident swimmers may prefer the snorkel trail at Little Salmon Bay. Find out more about this trail.

Coogee Maritime Trail, North Coogee

Just 25 meters from the shore, the Coogee Maritime Dive and Snorkel Trail, in the City of Cockburn, begins at the Omeo shipwreck and includes an artificial reef and underwater sculptures - including a giant starfish you can swim through! The trail is easily accessed from the northern end of Coogee Beach via the beach access path from Perlinte View.

Omeo is Perth's premier beachside shipwreck dive, accessible close to shore in shallow, clear water. Omeo is an historically significant and federally protected iron steamship that was built in 1858 in Newcastle (England). Omeo ended its days in Fremantle, where it was driven ashore and wrecked in 1905.

The purpose-built reef consists of 33 reef modules, designed by marine engineers and marine scientists to support a diverse range of marine flora and fauna. As well as being great fun to swim through you will find education signage about the reef and marine life. Find out more about this trail.
