Guidelines for snorkelling

  • Never snorkel by yourself! For your safety, find a snorkel buddy or join our guided activities
  • Note that the currents around Kuredu are unpredictable and at times very strong, that also goes for the house reef, so make sure you’re never alone in the water and wear fins at all times
  • Please don’t touch anything in the water – there are some venomous fish around so make sure you admire the reef with your eyes only
  • Protect yourself from the sun before your snorkel by applying sunblock and wearing an UV protection shirt
  • Drop by at the dive centre to flip through fish ID books, information about recent Manta Ray sightings, tide times and advice about the best snorkel spots suitable for your level of experience
