In our opinion yes, it's only $30 more than paying for 2 local dives and offers something different. However it does need to be very calm to get there so is not accessible all year.

Troy, we have around 20 dive sites in total, but access to them is weather dependent so would have to be assessed at the time. We aim to avoid repeating dive sites for customers when possible.

We don't do snorkeling here at Dolphin Dive but there are a number of people that do offer snorkel trips on the island, or you can go from the beach, depending on conditions
