Greens Pool Snorkel trail provides a range of easy to advanced snorkelling adventures in the waters of the William Bay National Park. Explore underwater sea life including octopus lairs, blue devils, globe fish, stingaree and eagle rays.  Greens Pool is an easy drive from Walpole or Denmark, Western Australia.

The pool is suitable all year round but assess water and weather conditions prior to entry. In winter the water is cool and there are stronger currents that need to be observed. 

Always swim with a buddy and let someone know your plans.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
