Beginner Snorkelling Sessions

These sessions are for those who are snorkelling for the first every time. The session will take place in the safety of Tinside Lido. It is designed to make you feel more confident in the water with snorkel equipment. You will get an introduction into the equipment, learn how to don a wetsuit, and join our experiences Snorkel Leaders on a guided snorkel of the Lido.

Intermediate Snorkelling Sessions

Discovery snorkel sessions are for anyone who wants to discover more about snorkelling in the Ocean. You will start these sessions with a short introduction to the snorkelling equipment you will use. Once comfortable, it’s time to get in the water and discover the amazing world beneath the waves. These exciting sessions will take place at various locations around Plymouth, so there are lots of opportunities to spot local creatures and habitats.
