Have been recently talking to a Cairns local about stingers in summer months. He says there are very tiny jelly fish/stingers that can pass through the stinger nets and are very dangerous. Is this true around Magnetic Island? Are there any tours from the island that provide the stinger suits for snorkling? Many thanks for any answers. Cheers.

Was swimming on Geoffrey Bay yesterday, and the Marine Rangers came up to us to tell us to stay out of the water, as a 2m croc had been spotted in the bay. Lovely beach / snorkeling there tho!

Most people will be in them I love mine as it protects me from the sun. Don't miss out on the beautiful clear water due to pride it is too magical.
