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

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!
