Guided Snorkel Tours:

Bookings are required so a guide can be allocated to your group.  The tour typically lasts for about three hours. An orientation and safety briefing is given before the tour with your guide starts.  There’s also free tea and coffee and an outdoor shower available on your return.

Please note that tours may be cancelled if the conditions are unsuitable (24 hours notice).  In this case, a full refund is given or, your dive is rescheduled. 

Unguided Snorkel Tours:

Simply turn turn up on the day between 9.00am to 6.00pm.  You will then be fitted from the full range of hire equipment.  Before you depart, you will also be given a conditions brief.  Then walk or, drive to one of the 8 sites listed within the reserve.

Go Snorkel also run snorkel courses - theory, pool session and sea dive. They have been teaching these courses since 1970.
