Guests on the “Coral Gardens Snorkel Tours” today had a fantastic time with our experienced local Marine Biologist.

These tours are a great way to learn about the reef as you are learning how to snorkel. The biologist took several small groups around the lagoon area of the reef, pointing out some interesting marine life (including sea stars and a Moray eel) for guests to see up close.

Passengers who joined today’s Coral Gardens Snorkel tour were also privileged enough to get a visit from a few big beautiful Green Sea turtles, Reef Sharks, Stingrays and Wally, (of course!) our resident Maori Wrasse.

Our guests were all smiles as they ventured from the mainland today, travelling in comfort on our RMIII catamaran to ‘Marine World’ on the Outer Barrier Reef.

The crew and passengers reported a bright sunny day out on the reef with a nice gentle breeze. Marine life spotted by those that entered the ocean included Moorish Idols, Long Nosed emperors, Redlip Parrotfish, Diagonal sweetlip, a reef shark, and of course Wally our friendly Maori Wrasse.
