Snorkeling Lesson

If you have never snorkeled before or consider yourself a beginner, join our experienced guides for a snorkeling lesson. You will first practice in the shallow waters of the lagoon, to get comfortable with the equipment and learn the proper techniques you need to know for a fun and safe adventure. Once you are at your ease, we will take you to Helengeli house reef to discover a beautiful and abundant marine life.

Guided House Reef Snorkeling

We offer guided snorkeling tours of Helengeli house reef, for those who don’t feel comfortable to snorkel without a guide or simply want to get orientated with our house reef.

Night Snorkeling

Whether on our house reef or on a snorkeling site close by Helengeli, join our night snorkeling tour to discover what happens underwater after the sun goes down. Even if you snorkeled on our house reef before, at night you will witness a new world coming to life under the glow of your underwater light. Our professional guide will show you sleeping fishes as well as other interesting reef inhabitants which only come out at night. Knowing how to swim is mandatory for this trip.

Snorkeling Excursion

If you are a good swimmer and a fish lover, twice a week we offer a 2-hour snorkeling trip to a nearby reef to experience a great biodiversity of fish and corals. Our snorkeling guide will show you the natural abundance of marine life surrounding Helengeli. If you think you are not ready or confident enough for a snorkeling excursion, join our Snorkeling Lesson first.
