What to expect from our trips

We are the only dedicated Snorkelling trip in the Bay of Islands, so we are focused on giving you value for money and creating great memories
from your time in our beautiful back yard.

With two sites planned for most of our trips, our main focus is the Marine Reserve in Deep Water Cove, with its well known clear waters, it is filled with plentiful and varied marine life, which also makes it fun for us – as we never know what else will turn up… explore a massive archway, amazing underwater scenary and have fun with cheeky fish that will make you laugh!

*If weather conditions do not allow us to get there, we have other locations up our sleeves.

Even though the waters here are warm, we provide wet-suits so you able to spend more time in the water, also a hot water shower for when you get out of the water and  hot soup!

Our well travelled and experienced snorkelers have described our trip as world class and many put the area on a par with The Poor Knights!

REVIEW ON TRIP ADVISOR Wow! This was an amazing day out with an incredible skipper Tammy. She was so friendly and helpful and know's so much about the Bay of Islands. The fish in the reserve that the trip goes to are super friendly. It was so cool to be able to feed them from your hands! I was even lucky enough to see a turtle! Tammy takes you to a couple of really cool spots, there was tons of fish at the first one and awesome caves and swim-through's at the next! With warm soup after all the time in the water this was a perfect tour and i would highly recommend.
