Snorkel Safari Day Trip Manukan Island – Tailored to Your Experience Level

It’s often said that “there’s nothing to it!” The truth is there are a number of skills to learn which make snorkelling easier and more enjoyable. For those new to snorkelling our Snorkel Safari Day Trip include snorkel briefings and orientation which will teach the basics of mask clearing, kicking techniques and snorkel use through shallow water instruction. Those more experienced will benefit from a reef orientation to maximise your enjoyment.

Upon booking please let us know your experience level so that we can tailor your days snorkelling. We provide professional snorkelling vests which enable snorkelers to float with ease on the surface of the ocean.

The Best Snorkel Sites on the Day

Our qualified snorkel guides will assess the conditions on the day and choose the best islands and location to suit the environment and your comfort level in the water. After your orientation session you will be spending the day jumping from the boat onto sites otherwise not accessible.

If jumping into the water is rather daunting, don’t worry you can use our boat ladder for easy access or you can snorkel the shallow bays if you are nervous about deep water.

Between each session of approximately 45 minutes you will return to our PADI 5 Star CDC Centre nestled within Manukan Island Resort on Manukan Island where you will enjoy beautiful island surrounding or just relax by the pool resort while having a glass of refreshing fruit juice from the resort’s bar.
