Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know how to swim to snorkel?

For the experience to be amazing a sense of confidence in the water is helpful, but if you want to do something new, let us know when booking and we would more than happy to give you that new experience, and we will make you feel good in the water with flotation aids and a calm environment to try.

Please feel free to contact us for any future inquiries at for any inquiries, please be aware that we don’t have an office and I am often out of cellphone coverage, so you may not get a response straight away, but I do check the emails each night, or text me a message of your interest.

What if I get motion sickness?

If you are prone to sea / motion sickness please take some motion  sickness tablets the night before, and in the morning of the trip before hopping on the boat. This will help a lot. The snorkelling is done from the boat and then you will be in the water so no land to stand on.     Remember to bring water and a warm jacket too.
