What can/can't I bring to the event?
Bring your own wetsuit and snorkelling gear if you have it but if you don't have your own snorkelling equipment we can provide free of charge.
Do you need to have snorkelling experience?
You don't need snorkelling experience but you do need to be a good swimmer (swim any stroke to move through water at least 25m unassisted). Extra buoyancy devices (boogie board, pool noodles and life vests) are available if needed. Larger groups will be broken down to smaller groups with similarly experienced snorkelers in each group - this allows more assistance to those who require it.
