Choose from Four Options

  • $19 for a snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for one (a $45 value)
  • $35 for a snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for two (a $90 value)
  • $34 for a power-snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for one (a $69 value)
  • $59 for a power-snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for two (a $138 value)<p>

Both tours explore the same territory and include snorkeling equipment: a mask/snorkel (prescription masks available), fins, a wetsuit, a snorkeling vest, and a view raft. The power-snorkeling tour comes with a Bladefish—a compact, handheld propeller which pulls snorkelers through the water. After leading a brief tutorial, instructors guide visitors on the Lover’s Cove snorkeling tour. The waters teem with brightly colored marine life, such as blue-dotted starfish and the bright-orange garibaldi—a fish so tame it will often eat french fries straight from divers’ hands. Guides also plunge down to the seafloor, bringing back up marine animals for tourists to experience firsthand. After about 45 minutes of guided snorkeling, participants get time for free swim. As there are no onsite changing facilities, guides advise visitors to wear their swimsuits beneath their street clothing. Towel rentals ($3) and locker rentals ($2) are available.

Customer Reviews

We got off to a rocky start with the actual booking and reservation process, but we were able to work something out where both parties could be accommodated, so that was good. The actual power snorkel experience was great! Our guide Dave was very nice and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of fish and learned a few interesting tidbits along the way. All in all we had a great time
