Hi Kim,

Only one company at the moment I think - Seastar, at least with a permit to 
land on the beach. I went out with them a week or so ago, smallish boat. I 
explained my motivation and they were great, they dropped me on the beach with 
their tender while they took everyone else glass bottom boating/ snorkling, 
then picked up my camera gear while I snorkelled back to the boat. Afternoon 
snorkeling at Hastings Reef was also great. Bridled terns and Crested Terns 
nesting, lots of noddies and Brown Boobies, a red footed and a ? Greater 
Frigatebird. Was great

Not cheap $230 for the day but they were very helpful and I got my 
birding/snorkelling intensive in the brief time I had available
