Ok. So the important advice is to walk the extra 100m south so that you can enter/exit the water safely and easily from the beach. When we first arrived we did what everyone else was doing - we braved the rocks to get in and...More

oyster stacks is special since the coral is so close to the surface of the sea, but you have to be careful while entering the water via the rocks. once in there fish and coral are plentiful.

Wonderful afternoon snorkeling here. Rocky shoreline takes some getting into and out of but well worth it with abundant coral reef and fish right off the shore.

Fastastic snorkelling but need to make sure you check tide times and not snorkel at mid to low tide. Saw octopi, moorish idols and thousands of beautiful fish

It didn't help that the sea breeze was in but this spot is difficult to enter & exit the water. Virtually no beach to speak of as its 90% rocks. If you have young children , go elsewhere

sorry for the late reply but definitely further down you should be fine. For us Oyster stacks was the best snorkeling spot in Cape Range.
