We will show you how to raise and lower the sails and will also show you how to control the yacht using traditional and modern navigational methods. You can sit in the captain’s chair and take control of the wheel to guide us from one tropical island to the next and become skipper of your very own sailing yacht for the day! Free Diving Free diving is the graceful art of diving without extra air or SCUBA apparatus, using only the air in your lungs – it is the nearest sensation to being a fish! We have 2 qualified free diving instructors ready and waiting to take you into the blue. We will teach you deep breathing and relaxation techniques so you can stay longer under the water. Our free diving instructors will get you hooked on the feeling of complete freedom! Kayaking We have our own fleet of fibre glass sea kayaks along with each trip so pump those biceps and explore hidden coves and secret bays around the islands. Drift gently up to the shore and jump out to explore your very own tropical island - this is Robinson Crusoe territory! IT IS NOT ONLY DIVING
  15. 15. Fishing Fishing within the enclosures of the marine park is off limits, however when we venture out of the marine park territory, we can throw out the lines and try to catch some fish. The most popular fish is tuna and barracuda. Ying our cook can make the best sushi or even steaks, which can be cooked on the BBQ! Try and catch one by yourself – you get a great kick when you catch a whopper! Snorkeling Snorkelling is a great way to watch underwater marine life from the surface. We have lots of snorkelling gear anytime you want to grab a mask, snorkel, fins and jump into the sea. You will become a drifting voyeur as you watch nature’s own underwater movie unfold in front of your eyes! Wakeboarding & Waterskiing On the S/Y Siren you can leave a wake wherever we sail! We will be offering both wakeboarding and waterskiing for the adrenalin junkies with our high powered speed boat.
