South Side Snorkel Tour
Children ½ price. Refreshments and snacks are included
For the seasoned snorkeler our South Side snorkel is a trip not to be missed. A fifty-minute boat ride over the beautiful Caicos Banks will take you to barely visited reefs at West Caicos, Southwest Reef, French Cay or Molasses Reef. Each area is wild, lovely and quite remote and we choose the destination based on the wind direction that day, to give you the best experience. Marvel at the colors of the water where the Caicos Banks drop into the abyss of the Atlantic Ocean; swim with eagle rays and turtles, thousands of juvenile fish at West Caicos, remains of old wrecks at Molasses reef, and during the winter months look out for humpback whales migrating to mate on the Silver Banks. This trip is a long ½ day with pick up from your hotel at 8.30 am, returning around 2:00 pm.
There are a couple of easy access areas for shore snorkeling and if you don’t have your own equipment then you can rent a full set of gear from Dive Provo for only $18.00 per day (24 hours.) We choose dry snorkels as they help nervous snorkelers feel more comfortable in the water and experienced snorkelers enjoy diving underwater repeatedly with more ease.
For better snorkeling take a boat trip. Dive Provo offers 2 dedicated snorkel trips.
Dive Provo employs only scuba instructors who are all knowledgeable about the reefs and fish life. They are happy to show you fish and explain behavior and we also have the Paul Humann Reef Fish Identification books on the boats for you to look at.
Rental equipment is included in all snorkeling trips.
If you know you like snorkeling, then you probably should try scuba! Our Discover Scuba Course with a maximum of 2 students per instructor, gives students the benefit of personalized attention while experiencing diving for the first time. You have a quick lecture on the basic Do’s and Dont’s and then practice vital skills in the pool. On the dives your instructor is right with you, guiding you safely through the wonders of the underwater world.
