Tidal Tao – Peace, Love, Snorkel

If you’re planning to visit the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, then a snorkel with Tidal Tao is a must. This is one of the best snorkelling experiences South Africa has to offer, with warm water all year round, varieties of fish, marine life and probably has some of the most southern shallow hard corals in the world, no jokes! All of this is in safe, shallow protected areas.

The coastline here is definitely a wilderness that rivals any national park or game reserve. We see whales migrating every winter and dolphins enjoying the surf. Our record of species in less than waist deep water is a 150 species of fish and we are still finding nudibranchs, not yet to be described by science. It is really a special place and all worth protecting.
