Fabulous experience

We were postponed because of windy weather, safety first. We went 2 days later and the day was spectacular. Popes Eye was terrific to get our snorkeling down pat an calm water with plenty of fish, coral, pretty weed and anenome under the pier. Out at Chinamans Hat we swam and frolicked with playful curious seals. We loved it, we felt safe and well looked after. The facemask and snorkel in very good and clean condition. The only let down was the wet suits, restricted my and my grandaughter's movement and was very thick. Lots of snacks and warm drinks after.
