Snorkel Safaris

Taking place every Saturday* at Mount Batten Beach, our Ocean Snorkel Safari sessions are aimed at those wanting to take the first steps into snorkelling.

Our Ocean Discovery Rangers are fully qualified BSAC Snorkel Instructors, and will be on hand each step of the way. Over one and a half hours, you will learn how to use snorkel equipment, cover basic snorkel techniques and explore everything that the Ocean has to offer.
