Ballito Snorkelling with Tidal Tao
Snorkeling .....as close to scuba diving as you will get without actually scuba diving
A 5 Star rated activity on Trip Advisor, just 30 minutes from Durban run by one of our passionate responsible tourism network operators
This tour starts with a meet and greet, where you will get some coffee (GOOD COFFEE) or something cold on the beach and we go through the formalities, signing indemnity forms, etc... we will confirm the meeting point and time when you book (these vary according to tides and sea conditions)
Thereafter, we issue you with your snorkeling gear (If you don't have your own), taking some time to ensure everything fits properly and you're feeling nice and comfy and cover any questions or concerns. We will get your shoe size for the fins when you book. For beginners we also run a short "skills" session, where we will teach you the basics of using your gear, how to get water out of your mask, how to move in the water and how to fix potential problems you may encounter whilst snorkeling, the purpose here is merely to ensure you are comfortable and have FUN !
After this, we hit the water, where your guide will point out interesting marine life and also keep a beady eye on you. You can expect to see at least 20-50 species of fish, corals, a wide variety of invertebrates and big shoals swimming around, including Moray Eels, Parrotfish, Damsels, Surgeons, Butterflyfish and loads of other colourful fish.
Photos of your trip are taken while you snorkel and children get a free certificate of participation.
