  • Helmet diving: A unique underwater adventure exploring to a depth of 3 metres without even getting your hair wet, which is perfect for the non-swimmer or nervous diver

  • Coral Gardens Tour (approx 30 mins): This incredibly popular and informative introduction to the reef is conducted in a shallow, bright and sheltered coral lagoon directly off the Marine World platform for first-time snorkelers
  • Snorkel Safari (approx 50 mins): Drift snorkel one of the spectacular Reef Magic walls, famous for their extensive coral formations and huge schools of fish for experienced snorkelers

At your own pace, while under the supervision of your certified SNUBA guide, explore to a depth of 3 metres with no bulky equipment, just a mask, fins, SNUBA harness and a lightweight belt. Air tanks are held in the specially designed SNUBA raft which floats on the surface and follows behind you as you swim.
