Each tour lasts for up to 90 minutes (including suiting up in toasty warm wetsuits (with hood, gloves and boots), safety & cuttlefish behaviour briefing, snorkel and debriefing). The tour is suitable for both adults and children (5 years and above) who can swim at least 25m and tread water. Children 15 years and under must be accompanied and supervised in water by an adult  (no more than 2 children per adult for 8 and above, but one child per adult for ages 5-7). Each supervising adult is also a paying tour participant. 

Depth ranges from 1-3m and groups stay close to shore in shallower water for best colour displays. Small groups are led by our accredited guides with marine biologist guides on hand to answer questions about the cuttlefish. 

Small groups - maximum of 6 people to 1 guide.

Snorkel guides lead the tours and are often accompanied by student or qualified marine biologists.
