What an incredible find....so much more than just a visitor centre and so huge. Love the old bus set up. Brilliant ideas and set up. Especially loved the Cyclone room and Design Your Own Fish activity. My grandson loves going there....

Gorgeous new building with friendly and helpful staff. We hired snorkel gear from here which was only $10 per day but very average quality. Toilet stop was most appreciated!

Hi it can cost as little as $10/ day. There is a lot of outlets in Exmouth that you can hire snorkeling gear from.
