Guided Snorkelling Adventures

Thousands of colourful fish abounds in this tropical water. When the tide is low, you climb on a Land Rover and take a slow drive around the northern tip of the island to the snorkelling area. On the beach, there will be some umbrellas to protect you from the tropical sun. Wade in from shore and experience a rainbow of colours. The aquarium is the only place we take a small boat due to the distance from shore.
Times will be advised by the water sport staff the night before. Snorkelling is done on low tide only, which is the best time to go due to the big tidal difference.

Prices includes snorkelling gear, car & boat trip to snorkelling location (15 min).

Kids and adults alike are more than welcome to spend their energy with this pass time.
