Marine Biologist Presentations
Our very own marine biologists are here to answer any questions you have throughout the day! Before you depart, the marine biologists will give an informative talk about the Low Isles and prepare you for the day, letting you know all about the things you might see during the day. Once you actually arrive on the island, they will conduct a guided safari around the reefs, showing you everything on offer! They will point out different animal species and shed some light as to what their role is on the reef. Later in the day, they will conduct a similar tour, but on the beach! The guided beach walk will give you a chance to talk with the biologists as you learn more about the flora and fauna of the island.

You will get to snorkel right from the beach during your trip with Wavedancer! We’ll transfer you to the island where you can walk right into the shallows and discover the beauty of the reef for yourself. All your equipment is provided and we’ll keep a close eye on everyone while they are out having fun, so you can feel safe during your snorkelling adventure. 

Glass Bottom Boat
The glass bottom boat departs from Wavedancer and cruises over the coral gardens, giving you the chance to see the beautiful reefs from a new point of view! This is a great activity for those who don’t want to snorkel or don’t want to get in the water. Informative commentary is included, so you’ll learn about everything you see along the way!
