By far the best way to explore the marine environment is to see the plants and animals in their natural state and to do this you need to get into the water but you don’t have to be a diver to appreciate the wonders first hand.

Snorkelling is a great way to explore some of the coastal areas around the island and you don’t have to go far. The jetty was constructed in 1999 and since then has become a fantastic artificial reef for any number of creatures. There are several snorkelling spots around the island and if you are an experienced snorkeller talk to the island warden for advice on safe snorkelling locations around Lundy.

If you are unfamiliar with donning a wetsuit and using a snorkel, or would just feel more comfortable with some expert guidance, why not join the warden for one of the weekly snorkel safaris that take place between June and September. 

Snorkel safaris are a good introduction to Lundy’s underwater life whether you are a seasoned pro or a complete novice.  All equipment that is provided is of a high standard including wetsuits, fins, masks and snorkels, and there is a small charge for the hire of our equipment.

Remember to abide by the Code of Conduct at all times and ensure your own safety by ensuring someone knows where you are and when you expect to return.
