Since the reef is in a depth of water that does not provide an area to stand; we have options available to accommodate those who consider themselves beginners. Life jackets are always available on all of our tours and we also have a floating rope tethered to the back of the boat which allows you to float comfortably and view the reef safely.
If you feel you need more information for a beginners level, we recommend calling us ahead of time so we can be sure to have to boat prepped to suit your needs.
