A kaleidoscopic underwater world awaits you
Encircled by a private marine reserve, the seas around Thanda Island house an incredible abundance of aquatic life which you can explore up close with a private reef snorkelling session.
Let Thanda Island’s experienced team guide you on a snorkelling experience you’ll remember forever. A boat will take you a little way from the shore, where shallow coral reefs carpet the seabed.
Explore the thriving metropolises up close, admiring everything from anemone to brightly coloured starfish. Octopi can be found in these waters as well, as can hawksbill turtles and black tip reef sharks darting harmlessly above the sand.
The resident marine biologist of the island will then show you the coral nurseries being harvested around the island, which is being done in an effort to preserve the incredible diversity and untouched splendour of this underwater world.
