Hook Passage Snorkelling Stop

The many anchorages through Hook Passage offer calm snorkeling conditions for visitors. Sitting between Whitsunday Island and Hook Island, the Hook Passage is a regular stop between destinations on a standard Whitsunday Bliss tour. Keep an eye on the tree line for sightings of many seabirds including Osprey Hawks and Wedge Tailed Eagles.


Hook Passage is visited frequently by dolphins, sea turtles and whales in season (June-Sept), all enjoying the warm waters gently moving with the tide over the tropical reef systems below. Whitsunday Bliss may stop for lunch here, as Hook Passage provides stunning views in all directions!
