The PADI Discover Snorkelling Experience is a great way to explore the Waiheke coastline using a mask and snorkel! All your gear is included, so that's your mask, snorkel & wetsuit, ready for you to explore with us!
Just imagine - you put your face in the water and see all the marine life. There's fish swimming, starfish making their way across the rocks and crabs darting in and out of their hiding holes.
Why choose to explore with us?
Small Groups - We really believe that the Discover Snorkelling Experience is best enjoyed in small groups, with maximum input from your guide. That's why, with us, you'll never have more than 8 snorkellers in the water with any 1 Instructor. If you're a bigger group, no problem, just get in touch to let us know your requirements.
Top Quality Gear - We work with the amazing guys at Mares to supply you with high quality snorkelling equipment for you to use, and that's all included in the price. We'll supply your wetsuit, mask, snorkel and fins - all you have to bring are your togs, a towel and a sense of adventure!
No Hidden Costs - Every piece of equipment you need to use is included in the price, so no surprises!
About The Tour
Simply book online or give us a call, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with an information pack shortly after.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements and we'll always do our best to accomodate (for example, if you're super nervous just let us know so we can give you some extra advice).
When you arrive in store, you'll have a chat with your PADI Instructor or Divemaster about your abilities while you complete the relevant paperwork. We'll then allocate your equipment before we travel to the chosen location for our adventure!
Once at the snorkelling site your guide will brief you about what you're likely to see and go through a thorough safety briefing, and they'll demonstrate how the equipment works. Together you'll then enter the water and see what can be found!
If you have friends that are booked on too then awesome! If not, you'll be buddied up with another participant for your time in the water!
Be warned though - this is a super addictive activity! Just ask your diver pals how many started their love of the water through snorkelling...
Discover Snorkelling Tours last about 2.5 hours from start to finish.
There are some medical conditions that may prevent you from snorkelling, unless you have clearance from your Doctor. Please check the PADI Snorkeling Liability form, found here, for further details but feel free to get in touch if you have any questions
Please note that all snorkellers must be aged 6 or above (those under 10 must be accompanied by an adult). For anyone under 18 we need signed, in person, parental or guardian consent.
You also do need to be able to swim to take part in this experience. Activities are conducted in English, so understanding of spoken English is also required.
