Hi, we are going to stay in Sultan Gardens with our 4-yr boy in December and would love to do some snorkeling with him, ideally in the house reef of the hotel.
But after reading some of the reviews on SG's TA review page, I am not quite sure if SG's house reef is suitable for my son who doesn't swim. Following is one of the reviews:
"The beach has a reef about 10 feet in to the sea so one has to go over a pontoon or walkway to reach water to swim in if you don't like pool swimming, but poor swimmers beware the drop under you is about 15 to 20 meters."
I also remember another reviewer reminding swimmers to be careful as there is a deep drop in the sea when approaching the reef area.
When my son is the water he will have arm bands/life jacket on, but I still feel this deep water will be too much for him. Could someone please let me know if there are areas with shallow water on SG's beach that non-swimmer kids can just wade through to see the fish in the sea?
