New snorkelers are encouraged (must be able to swim). Wetsuits, snorkels, flippers, guides and safety gear are provided. Just bring your togs! Please note the minimum age is 8 years, and children below 16 must be accompanied by a snorkelling adult.

It’s important to register your interest to attend through the Facebook event.
