Full description
Spend the day snorkeling at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, part of the Coral Triangle of Sabah in the South China Sea. Recognised as having the greatest biodiversity of any waters in the world, the Coral Triangle offers a vast range of marine life, including many colorful reef fish.

You will sail by fully equipped catamaran to the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman, where you will take 2 different guided snorkeling adventures around the coral gardens. An a la carte lunch will be served during the day at an island café, while refreshments will be available on board the well-equipped catamaran throughout.

The exact snorkel locations will be selected on the day of your tour, dependent on sea conditions, as well as your level of experience. For more confident snorkelers, a trip to a remote coral reef will be organized, where you can snorkel directly off the boat.

Less experienced snorkelers can relax with the help of a PADI professional guide, who will snorkel with you from tranquil beaches, and help you spot and identify the diverse marine life. See if you can spot an elusive green or hawksbill turtle. And look out for the shy clownfish, fondly known as "Nemo!"
