Durban Snorkelling Trips

Armed with only a mask, snorkel and fins, you can observe an underwater extravaganza in the tidal pools of Durban's beaches in KwaZulu-Natal.  From Scottburgh to Zinkwazi, these beaches are favoured for easy access to pools at low tide, good underwater visibility and abundant sea life.

The warm Mozambique current keeps sea temperatures at around 20°C, even in winter; warm enough that even adults can spend hours in the water observing the reef creatures. Colourful sponges, starfish, anemones and coral; parrot fish, blacktail, octopus and eels are just some of the creatures you may see.

If you're new to snorkeling, book a guided snorkel safari. During these two-hour trips, guides take you to secluded pools to search for interesting marine life.

It is advisable to wear protective footwear against jagged rocks, spikey urchins and sharp pieces of broken shells.
