Snorkelling

Check out the range of amazing Snorkelling activities we can now offer at KA Kitesurfing!

Swim with seals in the Farne Islands

The Farne Islands are located between Bamburgh and Seahouses on the Northumberland coast and are home to one of the largest seal colonies in the UK with around 1,000 seal pups born each year. Once we have fitted you with equipment and you have changed into a wetsuit, a picturesque boat journey takes us to the Farne Islands. We will enter the water and observe the seals in their natural environment. It is likely that we will see seals, fish, and seabirds such as puffins both on the boat trip and in the water. Seals will normally see you before you see them – they are inquisitive creatures and will often sneak up behind you!

No previous snorkelling experience is required and all equipment is provided. You will be accompanied by a BSAC qualified snorkel instructor throughout the session who will give you guidance on how to snorkel before you get in the water.

If you would like to wear fins and weight so that you can surface dive we can provide a 2 hour Snorkel Diver lesson prior to the Farne Islands trip. Please see below for more information.

Snorkel Safari / Fun Session

If you are comfortable in the water and want to take a look at the underwater world of Northumberland, there are a number of sheltered bays right on our doorstep which retain great visibility. Let our instructors show you a variety of crabs, lobsters, and fish which live around the shores of Beadnell.

Snorkel lessons

Let our BSAC instructors show you how to get the most out of a snorkelling session and stay safe. A typical lesson includes:

  • Demonstration and fitting of equipment
  • Signals
  • Avoiding shallow water black out
  • How to equalise properlyFinning techniques
  • Using weight and surface diving

At the end of the session we test our skills and have a look around at the local wildlife.
