Our PADI Discover Snorkelling session is excellent for children, adults, and family groups.
Snorkelling is great fun, easy to learn and is a great introduction to water safety making it ideal before you go on holiday. For younger members of the family, snorkelling is also a great introduction to the underwater world and can be their first step towards learning to scuba dive.
This is a non-certifiable session, but will build your confidence and enhance your snorkelling skills, allowing you to get closer to those amazing fish.

NEW ARRIVAL - Cressi Duke Full Face Snorkelling Mask
Serious about snorkelling?, a full face mask is an option you should definitely consider.
A quality mask and a great alternative to a standard snorkel mask, why?
-- Natural Breathing – you can inhale and exhale through either your nose or mouth, so natural breathing helps keep you calmer and more relaxed in the water --
-- Visibility – a clear uninterrupted 180 degree view with a frame that seals behind your vision line --
-- Water Barrier – a seal around your entire face, less chance of water getting into the mask when you smile and a rear strap holds the mask in place on your head --
The air flow system in Duke produces far less co2 build-up than a safety gas mask and the large outlet valves at its base, drains the mask quickly and easily if it fills up with water.
