MAAC Dive & Snorkel Trail
Directions - Located just south of Hillarys Boat Harbour on West Coast Drive, there is plenty of parking available at the Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club. The trail head is on the north side of the building, look for the wall art of various marine creatures.
The Snorkel - With the summer months bringing warmer temperatures, flies, ticks and the threat of bushfires, it's usually the time of year where I enjoy a break from hiking. Over the past couple of years I've started to snorkel a bit more, taking in the Omeo Wreck several times, headed over to Rottnest and visited Point Peron and Penguin Island. The northern suburbs were a destination I kept wanting to check out and with the opening of the MAAC Dive and Snorkel Trail recently, it seemed like a good excuse to head north. With my passport ready and all my fruit and vegetables declared, I crossed north of the river with a few friends to see what was what. While new hiking trails are few and far between in Perth (decades apart it seems), the rise of snorkel trails is really great to see. Just recently they have expanded the Coogee Maritime Trail and now a bit of money has been invested in the MAAC Dive and Snorkel Trail.
