Snorkelling in Dorset

The life under our water is possibly even more exciting than what we see from the surface. A snorkelling adventure with us will begin from our hutquarters at Studland's Middle Beach in Dorset from where we will head out, geared up to the nautical nines in wetsuits and snorkels, to investigate the local marine life. At Red End Point, a coastal headland steeped in geographical and historical interest, we'll tour the underwater world. Our eyes will be peeled for seaweeds, anemone's, limpets, crabs, wrasse, pipe fish and more. This is underwater foraging at it's very best.

It is an adventure suitable for all ages from 8yrs upwards and a brilliant way to build up your confidence in the water. Our snorkelling adventures are priced between £45-£60pp for a half day activity, you can find out more information and book through our booking page.


Safety is our number one priority and we can guarantee that all our instructors are trained to industry standard best practice and hold National Governing body qualifications where applicable, to operate in line with our BCU paddlesport accredited provider status and AALA licence. As a WISE wildlife safe accredited operator you be can rest assured that we work responsibly, without disturbing the wildlife and sealife.

In the event of an incident all of our guides carry personal locator beacons so that help will come straight away. Once activated, the signal is detected by a satellite and sent to a Mission Control Centre (MCC) where it is decoded and forwarded to the nearest Rescue Coordination Centre. Luckily we have never had to use them but we carry them so you are in safest hands.

Kayak snorkelling adventure

Using our kayaks we can snorkel around the famous sea stacks, caves and arches of Old Harry Rocks on the half day trip after a kayak along the cliff line of Studland Bay and alongside one of our BCU qualified guides. From here there is the opportunity to spot rare birds from the surface too and forage for sea vegetables.

You could see Bream, Bass, Mackerel, Rays, Dogfish in the Summer and Whiting and Plaice in the Winter.  

Snorkelling is a unique way to seek out edible seaweeds and forage underwater.
