Various sizes of goggles and snorkels are on the boat with pool towels. A short boat ride +-4.5km (15 minutes) will take you onto Pansy Island where you can snorkel around the shallow waters, collect the unique Pansy Shells or laze around on bean bags under the shade of a gazebo. A light snack basket and 2 soft drinks per person is included in the excursion rate. Additional drinks and alcoholic beverages may be purchased prior to departure. After spending about 2 hours on the island, your driver will take you back to Massinga Beach.
