SNORKELLING & DIVING

These expeditions are designed for both novice and advanced divers and for people who are good swimmers and in good health. People who do not have diving experience are welcome to join the trip to snorkel, however this will most likely only be possible on the first day as the expedition moves to deeper waters and strong currents. The remaining dive sites on the trip will only be for divers.
