Had a great winters day at really nice reef, the coral and fish life making for a memorable morning in the water. The sail boat that took us out was really well equiped and the talk given by the marine biologist on the way informative...More

We chose this tour to avoid the big crowds going out to the outer reef and were definitely not disappointed. The catamaran was perfect and had helpful friendly staff. The journey out and back sat on the front deck was really lovely in the sun,...More

Speaking as someone who hasn't had that much experience snorkelling, I found this to be a great day out but would agree that those more advanced might not get the same value or challenge. The highlight for me was probably seeing Turtles and Sharks, which...More

Unfortunately the tour we took was better for beginning snorkelers and families. There is only snorkeling from the beach on the island and while there is some great Reef corals and fish, the beginners kept kicking the sand up on the bottom and the visibility...More

The day was organised very well. All the crew were fantastic and we didn't feel rushed at any point. Being low season, there was only about 40 other people on the boat so if felt like a much more personalized trip. Great trip for non-swimmers...More

Hi folks ! Looking for advice. We are hopefully going to be staying in PD for a few days in July - we are from Scotland and are not seasoned snorkellers ! We had a catamaran cruise with snorkelling / turtles in Barbados 2 years ago and it was fab - except for my horrendous sea sickness (vomiting and everything and had to be taken off the boat back to land ) this was on fairly calm water. So my questions ...... how long on the boat is it till you get to the Low Isles ? Can it be rough (although I was sick even in fairly smooth ) Should I forget about doing any trips like this because of the sickness ? Do sea sickness tablets work ? Lol. Any views / advice welcome. Just seems such a shame to miss out on the snorkelling (which I liked !) coming all that way 😞

Purely from memory, the boat takes about 90 minutes; the water was calm when we went in August 2016. If you can go, then go; I'm not good in the sea but really enjoyed it. It's a great trip.
Hi there, we're looking at doing a trip to the reef for two families with kids (2 x 3 yr olds, a 7 month old and a 10 month old) would this day trip be suitable for these ages and what's the transfer of any from the boat to the island? Thank you 😊
