  7. Half day: Snorkeling with...

Enjoy Mafias rich coral with a snorkelling excursion. With an experienced guide, you will travel by dhow to one of the many locations available for snorkelling in the area. Your guide will give you a short introduction to using the equipment (if you are new to snorkelling), then take you into the water to show you the many different species that the park has to offer. You will be amazed by the vast array of colours, shapes, and sizes! You might spot octopus, moray eels, turtles, and seahorse.

Afterwards you head towards a secluded sand bank (which only appears for a few hours each day) for a local BBQ lunch and some time to relax! This tour takes about 5 hours.
