We urge all of our snorkeling guests to be aware of the rules that govern the reef, so that this treasure can be enjoyed by future generations. Coral is a living animal, and the clicking sounds you hear while snorkeling is the multitude of wildlife feeding in, around, and on the coral itself. Enjoy your snorkel adventure, but remember these basic rules:
- NEVER stand on the coral while snorkeling
- Use the buddy system – snorkel with a partner
- Swimming is a prerequisite for this activity – if you can not swim, ride along passengers are welcome
- Do not touch or take coral – it is against the law
Information About Our Marathon Snorkeling Vessel – The Starfish
We keep our boat obstruction-free so all of our passengers, both large and small, can fully enjoy their Marathon snorkel adventure. We operate three snorkeling trips throughout the season, so that you can choose a time of day that best suits your lifestyle.
The Starfish is a spacious, fully covered, luxuriously powered catamaran with a freshwater shower and a shaded lounging area. Your snorkeling gear is provided, but we also offer the following extras for your comfort and enjoyment:
- Underwater cameras
- Prescription mask rental (nearsighted only)
- Wetsuit Rental
- New mouthpieces
- Sun lotion
- Motion sickness tablets
We do not allow spray-on lotions of any kind on our Marathon snorkeling tours. The reason is because the overspray from these aerosols cause the deck to get slippery, and we don’t want an injury to ruin anyone’s snorkeling trip. This is also why we do not allow coolers or scuba gear onboard, because we want plenty of room for adults and kids to be able to fully utilize the deck.
