What you'll do
Mission Point Park is a great spot for beginner snorkelers and marine biology nerds! We will be snorkeling in Mission Bay, a calm, flat body of water that feeds into the Pacific Ocean. Being in the bay, we will encounter small fish, interesting algae, and lots of invertebrates, including sea slugs, octopus, urchins, and sea stars! After a brief safety and snorkel etiquette talk, we will explore the area for one hour. I will point out local animal species and provide detailed information about them. *If you are a non-swimmer, feel free to book a private tour and/or message me to see if this is the right experience for you. Sometimes guests can be overwhelmed by the water, but this is the perfect place to learn! I have hosted many non-swimmers and they have all loved their time on the water, just read some of the reviews below! Again, just communicate with me before booking and we can figure it out!
Mask, snorkel, fins, and pictures from my underwater camera are all included! Please rent your own wetsuit (detailed info…
