Journey to ‘The Pass’—about a 10-minute ride—and listen to your skipper for the best snorkeling spot. Enjoy a 1-hour swim as you try to find underwater creatures such as small wobbegong sharks, hard and soft corals, an assortment of rays, and three different kinds of sea turtles. Discover over 400 different species of fish while you are swimming and feel free to ask any questions you may have to the qualified dive staff.
Head back to shore for a quick, hot shower before the crew helps you identify some of the about the creatures you saw.
