If you really need convincing...
So unless youre born of an Atlantean princess and a lighthouse keeper (and lets be fair, thats probably only 23% of us) you probably dont regularly enjoy alternating your time between land and the deep blue. That all changes today.
This fantastic PADI Guided Snorkel Experience is an introduction to a snorkelling lesson and guided tour with the experienced Goat Island Dive & Snorkel PADI Divemasters, all for just $34.
The Guided Snorkel Experience is perfect for anyone who is new to snorkelling or is keen to enhance their skills. You can come and do this by yourself or get a group together to make it even more fun. Goat Island Dive & Snorkel can cater for groups of up to 90 people per day, making it a fantastic experience for school groups, corporate events, functions or team building exercises.
After booking, youll head to Goat Island Dive & Snorkel at 10.30am on your chosen day. Being on time is very important. Then the team will fit you comfortably with your snorkel equipment and its off to the beach for a flip chart presentation incorporating tips on how to snorkel, background history on New Zealands first marine reserve, and what fish and marine life youre likely to see in Goat Island Marine Reserve.
Then under the direct supervision of your PADI Divemaster, youre off snorkelling in the Goat Island Marine Reserve. After you feel confident in the shallows, youll be set to wade in to waist deep water and practice your new snorkel skills.
Youll be surrounded by a myriad of colourful New Zealand fish life including blue maomao, snapper, parore, spotties as well as crayfish. No promises, dolphins love visiting the reserve and playing with the snorkellers, this might be your day!
Just resist the temptation to sing "Under the Sea" while youre submerged. Thats a mistake you only make once.
