Safari routes

Dear guests,

here we would like to give you a brief insight into our safari routes. When choosing you route please take into account that every safari is unique. There is no fixed schedule. Dive guides and the captain have to adjust the route to current conditions.
Weather conditions, seasons (daylight hours) and the diving skills of our guests are essential considerations. We always strive to get the best out of the safari for our guests with due consideration of the conditions. However, Safety always comes first!
Guests often underestimate the distance on different routes. At an average speed of 15 - 20km/h the cruising times on a Marine Park South Safari for example amount to approximately 50 hours!
When choosing your safari- please also consider that not every route is suitable for everyone. If you are hesitating to choose which route would suit you, please ask. We will gladly help and advise you in choosing the best safari for you.
