There is plenty of snorkeling very near to us including both an established snorkel trail at Geoffrey Bay and an excellent beach snorkeling spot at Alma Bay. Both of these are within easy walking distance from us (5-10 mins). The other great spot we recommend - Florence Bay is about a 20 minute 4 wheel drive away.
Access to the island is also very easy. There are 2 regular ferry services from Townsville to Magnetic Island - Sealink is a fast foot passenger service and Fantasea a slower car ferry. They both run regularly (every hour or so) between 5:30am and 11pm.
Hopefully that information helps, but please get in touch again if you have any further questions.
