I recently contacted Stephen , the owner , who informed me that they are no longer in operation. He is moving to Australia to do Snorkel Safaris there. He was very helpful and gave me advice on where to go with my young grandchildren for a safe snorkel.

Just returned from a wonderful safari on a dull day on Barra. What a treat! Stephen is a great guide and patiently took two complete novices on a magical experience. Didn't matter about the weather at all. The world under the surface of the sea was fantastic. The colour of the rocks, kelp, fish and other sea creatures so close to the shore was unbelievable. A trip of a lifetime and highly recommended to all.

We had snorkelled before in warmer waters so were unsure what to expect in the Atlantic! Fantastic time had by all of us (even the 15 year old!). Steven made us all feel confident from the start and stayed with our younger son in the water so we could snorkel without worrying about how he was managing. We snorkelled off the causeway at Vatersay - beautiful surroundings and plenty to see in the water .The drysuits provided really did keep us all very warm and completely dry (even with our own clothes on underneath!) Well organised company and very happy with our time spent with Steven - good value activity for all the family. Thank you Steven .

Family of 5 with almost no experience. Stephen was fantastic, with the experience of being a commercial diver and the personality to enthuse even my teenage son. Enjoyed the experience greatly and will now consider trying it again on holidays having got confident and moderately proficient on Barra

A big thank you to Stephen for his great tuition and a fun morning snorkeling along the East side of Vatersay Causeway. We felt safe and reassured even though we had never done this before and there was plenty of time to get used to the equipment before entering the water to build our confidence. We were able to see sea urchins, starfish, crabs, sea anemones, plenty of fish including a some bigger fish, jelly fish and the magnificent underwater jungle of sea weed :). Wearing dry suits not only kept us dry, apart from our faces and hair but allowed us to float in the water quietly. This allowed the fish to swim right up to us! We also had a real laugh afterwards jumping into the Atlantic!. Thanks again, Stephen, This activity is definitely recommended for a fun time with a safe and knowledgeable diver.
