The Department of Conservation has a marked snorkel trail in the bay, with the diving and snorkeling out by the third marker buoy being remarkable. The large snappers and oversized crayfish permanently live in 5-8m of water. The site is well within the reserve boundaries so the fish are not scared of divers. Stingrays and large eagle rays are common in the summer months in the shallow water. It is the best snorkeling site inside the reserve with easy access by foot along the Cathedral Cove Trail or a five minutes boat ride.
