PADI Discover Snorkelling Experience

  • Snorkeling Dunedin

    Learn fundamental snorkelling techniques

    It is a great way to find out what we have under our blanket of water. There is so much to look at around the shallow parts of our coast and snorkelling is a great way to see it.

    You will jump into our heated pool and learn techniques such as breathing with a snorkel, straight line swimming, duck diving, blast and displacement clearing methods as well as safety practices, such as the one-up and one-down buddy system.

    All you need for this session is a swimsuit, towel and if you have a wetsuit bring that too (We can provide this). We will provide all of the other equipment you will need for your snorkelling experience.

    It is always better to learn in equipment you own yourself, so if you would like to purchase some please let your Instructor know. Also check out our online shop. Please note we do recommend  always trying on a mask before you buy as each face shape is quite unique and a leaky mask can really ruin your day! If you buy on our online store we will ensure when you come in it fits you correctly and if it does't we will happily exchange it for one of equal value that does.
