Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve, off Shelly Beach in Manly, is an incredible place for snorkeling and exciting marine life. It’s a 30-minute ferry trip from Circular Quay, and the reserve is home to more than 160 fish species, like big blue groupers, wobbegong sharks, sea dragons, and elegant wrasse. You can see turtles and dusky whaler sharks here in the warmer months. This is the ocean, so there will be good and bad days as far as currents and visibility go. I recommend a guided tour—we offer one at EcoTreasures—either midweek or late in the day. With a guide, your experience is safe, enjoyable, and gives a detailed picture of Sydney’s specific marine life.

Take some snorkeling gear with you, if you can, and enjoy the Cabbage Tree Bay Marine reserve. No surf here but plenty of people catching the rays,…
15 mins drive to Manly or just take the B1 bus to get to Manly- a great tourist area but not too touristy- more local-like.
