The creatures of Cape Town's tidal pools are cryptic and many of them well camoflaged. Also many are endemic to South Africa or the Cape. Because of my experience, I know what to look for and where - and this is what I'd like to share. I bring what you're looking at in the water into 3D focus.


The time of day we go out will be pre-determined by forecast tides and conditions and the experience will take up approximately three hours. I'll take you on a snorkelling journey of our beautiful, turquoise tidal pool of the day. They're filled with life and wonderful diversity. To see pics of many of the species of our tidal pools and more info, check out @wildbluevetty on Instagram.
Each pool is its own special gem and the locations are stunning. We will meet at Pisces Freedivers where we'll collect kit, and then move on to the tidal pool. At the pool we will take in the beauty and kit up. After a snorkelling brief, I will take you out on our tidal pool adventure. While we're in the water I'll take some happy snaps that I'll share with you later that evening. After our snorkel we will have tea and biscuits on the rocks next to the tidal pool. I'll take your kit and you're free to savour the experience for the rest of the day!

Yvette provided an excellent snorkeling experience near Simon's Town. She took her time explaining what our small group should expect to see and then led us on a great snorkeling trip. Afterward, she even took the time to show me some local "secret" spots to see the penguins away from the busy crowds.
