This might be a silly question, but do they provide life jackets for the snorkeling? I wouldn't be comfortable going without one.
The Portuguese man-o-war can be found around the world and is most common in the Austral summer months in shallow, coastal waters, and it is not uncommon to find thousands of Portuguese man-o- war floating in groups off the popular surfing beaches in Queensland, Australia. Diving is great, have fun, but be careful!
Since the US sense of humour is very different to mine, I will not make light of the instant relief available … Those who know … may fill in the blanks. I am sensible to US sensibilities. (However much I bury this knowledge, it is there!)
Alan knows what he's talking about, so listen to him. (I only live here … what would I know!)
Are wet suits provided or rentable for the Great Barrier Reef snorkel trip? Anyone know? Going in November!

I was on the trip in 2011. Yes they provide wet suits for diving. These are thicker than the lycra suits the snorkelers get. If you are not certified, they have a basic dive that gets you going. If you are certified, bring your certification and you can do advance dives. Go to the Quicksilver website for all the info.
