This snorkeling adventure is the perfect tour for the beginner and intermediate snorkeler as you snorkel safely from the beach and progress only as you feel comfortable with your guide.
It's a scenic 50-minute drive from the pier to one of the newest destinations on the coast that was once reserved for the most ardent divers. Upon arrival at the beach, you will receive your snorkel gear and your P.A.D.I. certified dive guide will give you an in-depth briefing on how to use the gear and how to snorkel. There is also an interesting narration about the extensive infrastructure of the reef and beach.
Once you are ready, your dive guide will then help you into the water, which was designed to be easy access from the shore. The tour begins in the shallow areas where nature has provided a perfect refuge for young sea life. As you feel comfortable, you will then continue on to the nearby reefs to explore the natural beauty of this amazing eco-system. The tropical marine life is plentiful and will greet you as you enter the water with such species as parrotfish, butterfly fish, angelfish and an occasional glimpse of an eagle ray. Water depths will range from 3-15 feet.
After approximately 45-minutes, your tour of this incredible underwater garden is complete and you will exit at the beach entry point. There will be time allotted to freshen up and enjoy a cold drink before it's time to re-board your transportation and transfer back to the pier.
