Parker Point Marine Snorkel Trail Information
Parker Point Marine Snorkel Trail is located on the southern side of Rottnest Island, a popular holiday destination 20 kilometres off the coast of Perth. The easy Top 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 plaques are identified with buoys making them easy to find and are equipped with two handles to hang onto. 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 trail at Little Salmon Bay.
The water conditions on the trail are generally calm, clear and spectacular, allowing superb viewing of the vast array of marine life.
Access to Parker Point is by Rottnest Bus or by bicycle. Rottnest Island is well known for its lack of vehicular traffic, just some service vehicles and the round the island bus. Therefore the main form of transport is bicycle. It’s possible to ride around the island (26 kilometres) in half a day, but to enjoy the cycle stop off at some of the many pristine beaches along the way, including Parker Point.
