Snorkelling - is the reef in front of the resort able to be snorkelled all day or is it only available at high tide? Susan
10 August 2017
  • Response from Turtle Bay Lodg... TProperty representative
    Hi Susan, Our fringe reef in front of the resort is accessible on all tides, and snorkelling is just as good at either tide. There are few currents to worry about, but it can be affected by wind chop and swell. Many thanks
