What people are saying!

  • "Amazing experience! Opened up a whole new world beneath the surface! Katie is extremely knowledgeable and has hugely increased my confidence, changing my entire approach to snorkeling and turning it into such a rewarding experience. Whether you are experienced or a novice I cannot recommend enough. Thanks again Katie."
  • "Absolutely lovely, magical Snorkel, the seaweed is like swimming through a fantasy world. Katie found us spider crabs, beautiful jellies and lots of wrass. So good to be snorkelling after nearly 4 years of not diving. "
  • "An experience I will never forget! Katie made me feel calm and confident with the equipment, techniques and the areas we snorkelled in. I learnt so much and feel I can now go out snorkelling alone and find under water treasures. Thanks Katie! Highly recommended"
  • "An amazing experience for both of us - Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion of the sea and for making us feel safe and comfortable in the water. We saw so much we were not expecting to and we can’t wait to go again. Thanks again and hope to see you soon - happy bubbles!!!!"
  • "Such a lovely morning- it was so interesting and so beautiful and right from the start Katie is so warm and welcoming and reassuring. She is absolutely the perfect person to be showing people this gorgeous world under the waves:) xx"
  • "Wonderful. My boys and I had a brilliant hour snorkelling with Katie. Her knowledge of the area, the conditions and the sea life we would see was superb made the session something none of us will forget. Thank you Katie. "
  • "Had the most amazing experience snorkelling with Katie. She is so knowledgeable on the beautiful plants and animals and her enthusiasm is catching. This is a must do as it was like being in an underwater fantasy garden, the colours of the plants and sea life was spectacular. Thanks Katie you are brilliant. "
  • "From start to finish, our snorkelling experience was perfect. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive but Katie made me feel comfortable and calm. I went along with my 10 year old daughter and Katie kept an eye on her while I was gaining my confidence! We learnt so much about the sea, snorkelling and the beautiful seaweeds. It was a truly magical experience with a wonderful lady. Thank you! xx"
  • "Our time in the water with Katie was simply magical! She is the most welcoming and loveliest instructor, who’s completely attentive to your needs. The experience itself was incredible, and even though I’m a complete snorkelling novice I was surprised how quickly it took me to feel at ease and simply enjoy the wonderful underwater world around us! We can’t wait to get back in the water! "
  • "Lovely and fascinating experience. Katie is a mine of information about sealife and she guided us well throughout . Wonderful."
