Snorkelling

The Ratua Marine Reserve holds a stunning kaleidoscope of sea life. 

Some of the best snorkelling can be done at Ratua with exceptional visibility and aesthetically appealing coral. The coral reef and surrounding waters of Ratua Island have been made a marine reserve to protect the wildlife and thus contributing to the high diversity of fish species. The small fish on the shoreline put on a daily spectacle when the GT give chase, often jumping onto the shore giving the children and staff alike the opportunity to run and pick up the stranded fish and return them to the sea.
