WHAT TO BRING
Your phone to take Instagram-worthy snaps
Swimwear (best to come wearing your swimwear as there is limited changing space) and towel
Hat and sunscreen
Don't bring too much as there is no storage space for large bags (bags left on the floor may also get wet)
Money for premium beverages and optional purchases (merchandise is available for sale onboard, see the items here)
Come prepared to get wet, given SABRE is a sailing boat, you may get some spray while she is underway
If you have not snorkelled before or are not a strong swimmer, inform the helpful crew and use one of the floatation devices available. Before entering the water, ask your snorkelling guide to check your equipment if uncertain.
Practice makes perfect
Practice snorkelling in shallow water or next to the boat before venturing into deep water.
Always snorkel in pairs, keep a watch on others' safety and stay in the snorkelling area and in view of the boat.
Don’t touch the coral or fish
Fiji is home to over 1100 species of fish and 400 species of coral, and we want to protect them. Human contact can cause damage to aquatic life and even wipe out species. So look, don’t touch.
It's easy to get excited with so much to see but stay at a steady pace so you don’t get too tired and stick with a group.
