Snorkel tours are conducted by our experienced, educated staff, well-informed in the reef fish and corals. Snorkel 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.
The first snorkel tour
Commences from the beach on Michaelmas Cay, you are transported over in our transfer vessel, arriving fresh and prepared where our talented staff will separate you into small groups, each with its own guide.
Typically, with this tour beginning from a beach, 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 and moves into the deeper waters where the interesting fish and colourful corals flourish.
After this tour there is ample time to revisit this reef, snorkelling and exploring with only the company of your buddy.
The second snorkel tour
Commences from the swim platform at the rear of Seastar.
Anyone who had a successful snorkel at Michaelmas Cay is now more relaxed, confident and well prepared for this reef, requiring less time to prepare. Any previous “novice” snorkellers are now no longer bothered by these deeper waters.
There is plenty to see here, you head off to investigate some of the stunning and challenging areas of this reef. Your guide will take you to visit the “Fish Bowl”, “Seastar Lagoon”, “Nemo Mountain” along with deep water caves, swim throughs and trenches.
Like Michaelmas Cay, there is still ample time to revisit this reef, snorkelling and exploring with your buddy.
