1. Re: heading to hamo in mid april

We visit Hamilton Island often . i wear stinger suits out on the reef now since receiving a bad sting on my foot while sitting on the metal entry platform for snorkelling.i don't swim in the water around the island and my experience tells me stinger suits aren't often worn there. We were just up there in Dec and people were in water crafts and swimming but the season of danger is supposedly Oct to March. I guess it's how daring you are and willing to risk the odds. The 'locals' on the island are quite blasé even at he craft hire centre, but there have been fatalities (1 or 2) on the island, well in the water.
