Snorkeling and Coral Reef Gardening

The basics of coral gardening are simple it is great fun and can become a healthy addiction. Join us in reef-scaping and leave an imprint of yourself on our reefs. Many of our returnee guests come back to see how far the reef has progressed, and every coral you plant becomes a home.

Makaira has one of the most prolific and dense inshore reef systems in the world.  As opposed to other renowned reef systems like Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, these are within a safe few minutes swim from the beach, rather than an extended boat ride. 

Complimentary snorkel gear is provided for our guests and free snorkel tours in our cove.  At a moderate speed to see the areas of our coral gardening project is approximately 2 hours.  Some guests opt to do less  of a tour.  For the avid snorkeler they could spend days exploring our whole reef system.
