Snorkeling Safari

Discover the beauty of Vanuatu’s reefs. Relax as you swim over the colourful reef fish swimming amongst the stunning coral.

Our snorkel Safari takes you out by boat to some of the sheltered reefs of Mele Bay and away from the crowds. A skipper stays on the boat and our local snorkel guides are in the water with you pointing out the best things to see on the reef. Play with an anemone fish, see the different coloured giant clams and watch the rainbow colours of the fish flash by.

Floatation vests and wetsuits are available if required to help you relax as you float about the marine life just below you.
