Experience what lies beneath the ocean at Storm River, Tsitsikamma on the Garden Route where you can snorkel tidal pools or the Tsitsikamma National Park’s underwater trails.
From the Tsitsikamma Storms River National Park. Turn toward the sea off the N2 highway and drive down to the mouth of the river. You can enter with a Wild Card or pay the entrance fee.
The Tsitisikamma Storms River National Park is a National Marine Park where indigenous coastal forests meet the oldest marine reserve in the country.
The underwater world is your oyster when snorkeling at Storms River! You can move across the ocean’s surface like a human-sized sea turtle, marveling at the spectacular marine life from above, chasing fish over the reefs and spotting sun rays on the bed of the ocean. Escape the rush of the real world and experience how “everything’s better, everything’s wetter under the sea!” This splendid sea safari is enjoyed by “human turtles” from almost any age and thus an ideal adventure for the whole family.
Guided snorkel trips in the Tsitsikamma National Park
Guided snorkeling trips are available for groups, unaccompanied children and first-time snorkelers. A guided snorkeling trip begins with a briefing on the gear, fin techniques and snorkeling skills, so that you won’t be out of your depth when you are in deep waters! This is followed by a guided snorkeling adventure around the breath-taking reefs at Storms River Mouth. Long after you have finished floating on the ocean, you will still be floating on air from the incredible experience.
Should you wish to book a guided snorkeling trip, please contact us in advance as it is subject to minimum group sizes and availability of guides.
It is enjoyed all year round and everyone, young and old, can experience the best that the Tsitsikamma National Park has to offer. Explore deep into the Storms River Gorge and enjoy the long, deep, quiet pools with deep caves and ancient indigenous forests that the Garden Route is famous for.
