Fully Guided Snorkel Tours

What Seastar does extremely well.

Snorkel tours are conducted by experienced, educated staff, well-informed in the reef fish and corals and all have obtained the safety standard of Recue Diver as a minimum requirement. Guides tow a life ring behind them, which serves as both a reference and additional floatation, should you become tired. This is someone you would like to have close by if you are new to snorkelling.


Michaelmas Cay

The first snorkel tour

Commences from the beach, you are transported over in our transfer vessel, arriving fresh and prepared.

It is here that our talented staff will separate you into 2 groups:

Adventure Snorkel Tour

This is for the experienced snorkeller or strong swimmer. After checking equipment this tour heads out into the deeper water around the cay where the interesting and colourful corals flourish.

Novice Snorkel Tour

Typically with this tour, more time is provided to become acquainted with the mask and snorkel, fit the buoyancy vest and generally become comfortable before commencing. Initially on starting the tour is very measured, remaining in shallow water until everyone in the group is 100% contented before carefully heading away from the beach. Reassured by the life ring the guide tows behind, it is not long before this group has moved into the same area as the Adventure Snorkel Tour and although not travelling as far, those on this tour also see excellent reef.


Hastings Reef

The second snorkel tour

Both the Adventure and Novice Snorkel Tours commence from the swim platform at the rear of Seastar 1. And there is plenty to see here. Even though there are some areas of deep water, most of these tours are spent in depths of less than 3 metres.

Adventure Snorkel Tour

This heads off to investigate some of the stunning and challenging areas of this reef. You will visit the “Fish Bowl”, “Seastar Lagoon”, “Nemo Mountain” along with deep water caves, swim throughs and trenches. Many previous “novice” snorkellers often choose to join this tour.

Novice Snorkel Tour

Again, starting cautiously this tour heads out to cover the same area as that of the Adventure Snorkellers. Anyone who had a successful snorkel at Michaelmas Cay is now more relaxed, confident and well prepared for this reef.
