The other way to explore the reef is the snorkelling program offered on both of our vessels. Masks and snorkels are provided inclusive of the trip and snorkelers are given the opportunity to explore the colourful, vibrant reef at leisure whilst our knowledgeable crew provide informative supervision and fish feeding from the nearby safety boats. The snorkelling is fantastic and a highlight for most. Even if you are not a confident swimmer we provide buoyancy vests and flotation noodles as well as two vigilant safety boats.

But remember, there is plenty of time on the Reef, you can do both Snorkelling and Scuba diving to your heart’s content. There is so much to see, so take your time and do both activities that way you get the most out of your reef experience. The more you explore the more you see!
