$10 aud to get the boat across to hideaway, take snorkel gear, or can hire, get postcard approx $5 aud with postage
If you have an underwater camera, take shots as you snorkel out and post the card
Cafe/ bar on island etc
Fun novel thing to do if you ate in port for the day
Snorkeling not too bad either..enjoy

Probably only something you'd do once, but worthwhile doing.
While we were there the diver came and emptied the box.

Fun to try and get to the underwater post office to post your postcard. Don't expect it to get home too quickly. Hideaway is on island time. It will get there but it all takes time.

Hey the picture says it all. It's actually just one attraction of the jewel that is Hideaway marine reserve. Go there (but not just for the PO).

Be sure to post some postcards! They arrived in Australia around 2wks later. Such a funny concept!
Visibility in the water is amazing. If you have kids/teenagers, be sure to visit.
