In fact snorkelling is a great way to turn your next holiday into an unforgettable adventure. Snorkel Safari in conjunction with Dive Adventures offers a great range of holiday and snorkel travel packages throughout Australia and around the world. We have many travel destinations available that you can enjoy yourself or with the company of your family or friends.

There are many places just below the surface that are filled with brilliant colours, incredible marine life and spectacular reefs that are waiting for you to discover and explore. As you surface dive more often you may find yourself wanting to venture deeper, or enjoy the wonder of the underwater world longer. If you want to take your exploration of the underwater world to a whole new level, Snorkel & Dive Safari offers continuing pathways:


If breath-hold diving (snorkelling & freediving) allows you to see the underwater world then SCUBA diving will give you the freedom of more time to interact with and experience the underwater environment with your own Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA).
