This relatively short stretch has a mix of shallow sand hollows and channel, rocky outcrops, sea grass and habitat for marine life. It is a safe area for beginner snorkelers, photographers and novices to marine environments, that is relatively under-utilised by holidaymakers and day trippers. Many are unaware of what is at their feet, in close proximity. It would be suitable for up to 300 local participants, especially school children. It is an ideal location for marine education and public awareness of issues affecting local marine environments.

Greetings All, If funded this event would be held in February / March 2018, hopefully to capitalise on summer weather. Similar events have been held in other locations, run by EMS, who have dedicated groups of snorkel guides. This is a great activity for families.
