Stinger Suits?


Recommended Posts

I see that you are from Australia where stingers are prolific at certain times of the year, at least in Queensland. I have never heard anything about them on the islands and never seen anyone wear a stinger suit.

As other posters have said stinger suits aren't required around the Pacific Islands - at least not anywhere that we have been on cruises.

We have snorkelled at lots of places and all have been around December and January. It pays to wear a rash vest though as it's very easy to get your back badly sunburnt while you are happily floating around.:eek:

The one thing to be careful of is to not stand on the coral as it not only gets destroyed :( but you can also get a coral cut which are very susceptible to getting infected and that would definitely ruin your holiday.
