Located in the heart of the "Coral Triangle", this snorkeling tour takes you to the very best areas for encounters with colourful coral and teeming fish.

We’re likely to encounter big fish like manta rays, reef sharks and masses of schooling pelagics along the way, backdropped by fields of hard and soft corals.
