What you'll do

The trip starts with a meet and greet as well as completing the indemnity form. We then head down to the beach to issue you with your snorkeling gear (If you don't have your own), taking some time to ensure everything fits properly and you're feeling nice and comfy and cover any questions or concerns. We will get your shoe size for the fins when you book. For beginners we also run a short "skills" session, where we will teach you the basics of using your gear, how to get water out of your mask, how to move in the water and how to fix potential problems you may encounter whilst snorkeling, the purpose here is merely to ensure you are comfortable and have FUN ! After this, we hit the water, where we will point out interesting marine life and also keep a beady eye on you. You can expect to see at least 20-50 species of fish, corals, a wide variety of invertebrates and big shoals swimming around, including Moray Eels, Parrotfish, Damsels, Surgeons, Butterflyfish and loads of other colourful invertebrates. The entire trip lasts about two hours and includes photos of you snorkeling underwater and a free copy of our marine life ID guide.

Michelle

I founded Tidal Tao several years ago with the sole purpose of getting people into the water. Snorkeling is so easy and accessible (compared to scuba diving) and no better way to get people passionate about marine conservation than getting them to experience our marine life first hand. I grew up surfing along our coastline, a qualified nature guide and snorkel instructor with over 7 years experience sharing our coastline with tourists. I have a consistent five star rating on TripAdvisor and it doesn't matter if you're young or old, if you can swim, I can teach you to snorkel

What's included

Drinks
We provide a warm hot chocolate to enjoy after your snorkel safari
Equipment
We provide all your snorkeling equipment including masks, fins and wetsuits in winter months.

Where you'll be

Our Discover Snorkeling Safari is VERY SAFE, you are protected from the open sea and the water is seldom deeper than a meter and a half, so ideal for families and children. We explore a range of special tidal pools and natural gullies which are rich in marine life, corals, nudibranchs, fish and all sorts of cool critters. We tend to decide on the exact places we will explore based on conditions and tides.
