Explore beautiful shallow reefs.
Encounter incredible marine life.
Perfect for beginners.
You are spoilt rotten for amazing places to snorkel in Northumberland.
Join our experienced instructors for a guided tour of one of our beautiful shallow reefs. As you explore, you will encounter an abundance of local marine life. The Northumberland coast is teeming with life with everything from crabs and lobsters to little cat sharks and grey seals!
These safaris are perfect for beginners and those aged 10+.
If you are new to snorkelling, you will take part in an introductory workshop. With guidance from your instructor, you'll learn how to clear your mask and snorkel plus how to swim using fins. You'll also learn how to interact responsibly with your environment while in the water. You'll follow the Green Fins code of practice to ensure you protect the delicate habitats you explore.
For salty sea dogs, your guides can take you to more adventurous places where you can practice basic free diving techniques and leave the surface behind.
To do your bit to protect the ocean, you'll help us remove any litter you find underwater on the beach. We'll also make a donation on your behalf to the local seal hospital at Tynemouth Aquarium.
Price: £45.00 per person (requires a minimum of 2 snorkelers to run the adventure)
Suitable for: Adults and accompanied children ages 10+.
Help us protect the ocean.
When you snorkel in Northumberland, you will connect with the ocean and realise that our local, cold water reefs are just as delicate as their tropical cousins. We want to do everything we can to protect the habitats and marine life that lives there, and we need your help!
We operate a strict passive interaction policy when we snorkel. This means that there is no touching, taking or chasing marine life.
We also make sure to minimise our impact on the ocean in general. We don't touch the bottom or stir up sediment while we snorkel and if we find any litter during our adventure we make sure to remove it.
Your instructor will introduce you to the Green Fins code of conduct during your briefing and will help you become a responsible snorkeller during your safari.
