Snorkelling Lessons

If you have never snorkeled before, or it has been a while and your confidence is lacking, we recommend that you participate in a complimentary 30-minute lesson from 7.45 a.m. to 8.15 a.m. prior to the Reef Tour departure. Please collect your snorkelling equipment from the Beach Club prior to the lesson.

It is followed by a short guided snorkel, offering a complimentary interpretive tour on the reef directly in front of the Beach Club in Anchor Bay.
