What does snorkelling at Tabarca consist of?

First of all, you will try on the snorkelling equipment and we will set of to the boat. The boat trip takes around 20 minutes and once we are there, we will start our snorkelling adventure!

We will snorkel in two different spots at Tabarca Island, which is right in front of Santa Pola’s coast. Each snorkelling session lasts around 45 minutes and there will be a guide with you the whole time. In between, we will take a break for lunch and then we will get back in the water to continue exploring. Your guide will decide the best snorkelling spot depending on the weather conditions and the level of the participants.

We will explore the little Island of La Galera or L’Escull Negre and the beautiful Tabarca caves in truly pristine, clear waters. Everyone agrees that our Snorkel Safari is a fabulous day for everyone and should not be left out from your holiday itinerary.
