Perfect for beginners or those that want a more relaxed pace.
We start the tour with a quick lesson about safety and paddling technique. As a group we paddle out through Simpson Bay, passing the boats moored in the bay. If weather allows, we paddle out into the ocean and around Pelican Rocks to reach the next bay. The pace is leisurely, allowing you time to enjoy the view of the neighboring islands and the birds resting on the rocks. Once we reach our destination we beach the kayaks and get ready for snorkeling.
After trying out your snorkeling equipment we swim out to explore the rocky caverns and corals where we will see parrot fish, angelfish, trumpet fish, needle nose, tang and a variety of other creatures. Your guides point you in the right direction and snorkel with you, helping to point out fish you might have missed otherwise.
After approximately 45 minutes of underwater exploration, you will head back to your kayaks for the return paddle to Kim Sha Beach followed by an ice cold refreshment at the Greenhouse Restaurant and a discussion on the fish that you discovered during your swim.
Note: We use sit-on-top double kayaks for our tours. There are a limited amount of single kayaks available which are reserved for the guides and if there is an odd number of people.
Level of difficulty: This tour is moderate, but can be more difficult depending on wind and wave conditions.
