During your 2 day tour, you will get at least 3 opportunities to snorkel the coral-filled bays on the coastal fringes of the islands. Here you can see turtles, Maori wrasse, batfish, parrot fish, clown fish (Nemo) plus plenty more! in most bays, the coral starts close to shore and is easily accessible by the small tender boats. For the nonconfident swimmers, there are noodles and flotation devices available for safety.

March can be extremely hot and humid, especially downstairs on a boat. Unless you are accustomed to living in this climate, you
may find it slightly uncomfortable, especially at night when you are sleeping. Please be prepared for this

We provide tap water on all our vessels however it isn’t cold and some people don’t like the taste of it. During our summer
months, we strongly encourage you bring bottled water. We recommend 2 litres per day. Tea and Coffee breaks are generally in
the morning and afternoon.
