Our most popular tour is the "Discover Snorkelling Safari" - The trip is about two hours, perfect for first timers and includes everything you need to have the experience of a lifetime and get your first taste of the wonders of our ocean, right here in Ballito and Salt Rock. Small groups, exceptional guides, unforgettable experience. 

If you want excitement and an adrenaline rush like you can't believe and you want to see marine creatures you would otherwise never see during the day, then be sure to get onto one of our Night Snorkeling Safaris. Our personal favourite snorkeling trip

If you want to see a totally new and different range of marine creatures, then be sure join one of our special "advanced" snorkeling trips. These trips focus on the "little things" such as finding colourful Nudibranchs, Octopus and other more unusual critters 

At Tidal Tao, we are dilly, silly and plain old passionate about the ocean. We see young people exploring the ocean with so much patience and excitement. They naturally have a sense of wonder and an affinity for nature. Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living.

Join us for one of our, fun, informative low tide rocky shore walks at Chaka's Rock Beach, one of our favourite spots for finding cool critters and an amazing evening out for the entire family.

The Tidal Trail, a gorgeous guided full morning walk from Christmas Bay in the North to Willard's Beach in the south. An opportunity to see the north coast like never before, visit every beach on our coast, enjoy an epic beach breakfast, crazy rock formations, migrating whales (June-November) and dolphins frolicking in the surf. Sound like your sort of adventure?

Q: What is the minimum age limit for taking a Snorkeling Safari?

A: We expect folks to be at least over 12 years old and can swim. You don't need to be a “Super Gold Medal Olympic Swimmer” as most waters are very shallow and protected from the open sea, but it does help if you feel comfortable in the water. Children under 12 can join the safari if they are the full responsibility of their parents.

An underwater photo-shoot is great fun and a chance to get some really special images and memories .....quite unlike anything you would be able to get on land
