Magnetic Island Day Trip

Car hire or bus on Magnetic island for day trippers? Thoughts welcome please. Want to swim and snorkel whilst checking out the island a little. Are snorkelling places easy to access? Understand hire vehicles cannot go on unsealed roads?? Take a packed lunch or is food reasonably priced and readily available?

You can hire a small car for the day or if you want to use public transport you can buy an all day pass, you can snorkel at Alma Bay (the bus stops there) also Geoffery Bay where they have a snorkel trail bus also stops there, other snorkelling areas a little harder to get to, and yes some of the bays you cannot take hire car down to, but I believe some of them you can, you would just have to check with the hire people. Regarding lunch It is easy to get lunch at Horseshoe Bay.Arcadia nothing right on the beach at Geoffery Bay and at Picnic Bay the hotel. Meals are not as cheap as bringing it yourself, but then you have to have an esky or similar to keep it fresh and cool
