No previous experience required as the crew take time to fit everyone out with quality gear, share some tips on snorkeling, provide some information on the marine life you can expect to encounter and give special attention to first timers.
Bouyancy aids such as wetsuits and noodles maintain all the freedom of movement while comfortably allowing you to stay at the surface and observe the marine life beneath.
Once in the water guests are free to explore the wonders of the reef alone or join our guided tour.
Snorkel the Muiron Islands. Spend the day exploring different snorkel sights accessible by boat only. Search for wildlife to view from the boat such as Dolphins, Dugongs, Humpback Whales and Whalesharks (boat viewing only).

What kind of visibility can I expect? Unfortunately this is an impossible one to answer! Our viz is mostly quite good (10m+), can be exceptional (25m+) or can be not so good (<5m). Viz will change with winds, tides and weather patterns - viz at some sites can clear up in a matter of hours. Our crew will do their best to drop you in the best water on the day.
What do I need to bring with me on the tours? We provide all of the equipment you will need and drinking water on board. On some tours lunch/refreshments will also be included – ask at the time of booking. You need only bring personal items (sunglasses, warm layer, towel, etc) , diving certification card and logbook.
Do I really need my certification card? YES!! If we don’t sight your certification card you cannot dive with us so don’t forget it!! You must have dived within the past 12 months or you will need to do a Refresher with us before your diving tours.
Are all of the dives guided? Can I go dive the sites with my buddy and no guide? Yes, we always have experienced crew in the water and on our vessels. Experienced divers are welcome to dive in their own buddy teams on most sites, without a dive guide, after listening to a dive brief. Each diver in the buddy team not diving with one of our guides must have a safety sausage and a surface noise maker. Our crew will inform you of the time limits on each dive.
Do you use DIN or yoke fittings if I have my own gear? Most of our tanks are yoke valves. But we do have a small number DIN valves available, please let us know if you require these.
