Local Reef and Turtle Tours

Local reef snorkelling tours are available to explore the nearby Clam Gardens, Mermaid Cove or Horseshoe Reefs (conditions pending) on a guided local snorkel tour with an expert marine and dive team. 

Turtles are a regular sighting on snorkelling tours and during the summer months Green, Loggerhead and Hawksbill Turtles can be seen grazing on sea grasses at low tide along the beaches.
