Living in Melbourne you have the rare chance to explore a rich wonder-world of sea creatures at some of the most protected snorkelling sites on Earth. If you're new to snorkelling though, it can  be quite daunting, as there is a lot of complex and conflicting information online.  

This book is a guide for the beginner keen to discover snorkelling for themselves. It's also ideal for parents wanting to explore with children, to find the most sheltered places to swim. 

A Beginners Guide to Snorkelling Around Melbourne cuts through the complexity and treats the reader to the joy of snorkelling. It answers common questions, such as: What gear do I need? What are the right conditions? What can I see? And, where are the best places to go? There is even a checklist for wildlife you might see!

Written, illustrated and photos by Simon Mustoe.
