Low Isles is surrounded by 165 different species of hard & soft corals and is a haven for Turtles.  A large variety of marine life such as molluscs, sea cucumbers & fish such as colourful blue, green and purple parrotfish are a common sight.  

Our friendly crew will guide you through all the activities on Low Isles, from snorkelling and exploring the island's beach with an expert marine biologist, to seeing the coral gardens from a glass bottom boat.

Wavedancer remains moored in the island's lagoon, and guests can take a regular shuttle from the beach to the boat.  Snorkelers have the opportunity to join organised snorkel expeditions and view the creatures of the reef with a Marine Guide. If you're lucky you might spot one of the Turtles that regularly visit this tranquil location.

We had a lovely day out on the cat,
Food was good
Just poor visibility of the coral and fish , a little disappointing .
Would recommend to go to the reef if you really want to snorkel.
