Top 5 Best Fish Species to See While Snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef

by Mihai Pinzariu on September 24, 2019

The Great Barrier Reef is home to the world’s most diverse range of fish species, and there’s only one way to get up close and personal with it all: donning a snorkel mask and hopping into the ocean. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to this sunny spot of the world, here are the Top 5 fish species to look out for in the Great Barrier Reef!

1. Maori wrasse

This is a gigantic, peaceful fish with unique Maori warrior-like markings on its face. Different shades of blue and red and yellow make this fish truly Instagrammable! Given its huge size, the Maori wrasse is known for accidentally photobombing snorkellers’ underwater photos. Very cute! With a snorkel Mask, you’ll get to enjoy perfectly clear images of these beautiful fish – with no fogging!

2. Clownfish

Okay, we can’t talk about the Great Barrier Reef without mentioning Nemo… This famous orange fish is a big hit under the sea, for kids and adults alike. If you’re ever snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef, make sure to keep your eyes out for one of these adorable buggers!

3. Sea butterflies

Otherwise known as flapping snails, sea butterflies are beautiful little molluscs that float along the surface of the water. These things are basically invisible, with colourless shells that let you see through to all the other colourful fish and coral life around.

4. Sharks

No, we’re not crazy! The Great Barrier Reef is teeming with friendly reef sharks that you can meet while snorkelling. If you ever want to boast to your friends about swimming with sharks or get a good photo for Instagram, this is your chance…

5. Giant cod

To snorkel with out-of-this-world massive cod, head to the Cod Hole on the outer reef. Here you’ll find lots of these beautifully patterned gentle giants swimming around, ready to mix and mingle with eager snorkelers. Just like the Maori wrasse, you’ll probably spot a few giant cod photobombing your photos!

Being at the Great Barrier Reef without a good snorkelling set is like showing up to school naked. Make sure you’ve got the best view possible with our 180-degree, flat lens full face snorkel masks. Our masks also come with a detachable GoPro mount, because we know you’ll be taking photos.

What customers are saying about us…

“Awesome set.

Loved the complete set. I even used the waterproof phone pouch to take photos and videos underwater. It made my Fiji experience so much better than using the free snorkel set that hurt your face after 2hours and leaving a sun/mask mark. The ninja leaves no marks and gives great vision under water in comparison. It did take some getting used to but it definitely paid off! Only frustration is that the tightening straps are quite basic; they should be much simpler to loosen and tighten both in and out of water.” – Jock
