We took a snorkeling trip with PPK while touring Guadeloupe. PPK is primarily a dive shop so there were only a few snorkelers on the boat. This wasn't a huge problem as we are confident swimmers. For some reason, the guides wanted us to wear wet suits. We did but there was no need in the warm Caribbean waters. The boat we took to the snorkeling/dive site was crowded. We found it difficult to move around with the divers trying to manage their equipment. Fortunately, the boat trip is short. The snorkel site was very nice with plenty to see.

We'd recommend this trip with the caveat that snorkeling is not the primary activity.

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback.

As you said, we have a lot of scuba divers at the moment du to french holidays and the boat is quite empty during the boat trip.
Fortunaly, when we are on the dive spot, there are only snorkellers left.

We ask to snorkellers to wear wet suit (shorty) for safety. It is helping you for bouyoncy and keep you and your shoulders safe from the sun.

We are working to offer a special snorkelling trip for next season, one boat only for snorkellers with different dive spots.

Thnaks again. We hope to welcome you again for a new experience.

Best regards.

On the spare of the moment I decided to do an OW dive with PPK over the Easter Weekend which was a pretty busy time! Very straight forward process to register/book and just turned up for the dive on the morrow. All the kit was on board which is really convenient and it just a short work from the dive centre to the pontoon. We dived around the Pigeon Island which was great with 45mins bottom time. Lack of French not an issue. Fun group of staff/instructors without compromising on the safety. Highly recommended.

If you are interested in great snorkeling, this is the place to go. The exceptional staff took us to the Coral Garden site which is a preserve. There were magnificent fish and the crew did not bait. We were there in 12-17 and have already booked a return visit.

We did the Baptême there and decided to do the PE12 too, because the experience was just perfect! Teachers are great, both technically and personally, accurate explanations, they make you feel secure and taken care of. Everybody working there is close and nice all the time (boat driver, receptionists...). The material is also in good conditions and clean. And the planteur they offer in the end is fantastic!

I highly recommend PPK: the staff was great! Friendly, professional, helpful. The dive was made easy for us (our dive gear was already prepared, in good condition and waiting for us on the boat). The dive was very well guided too.

Diving in the Reserve Cousteau was wonderful. Beautiful corals, moray eels, octopuses and many many tropical fish. With a bit of luck you will see some turtles.

My two children (9 and 12) had a « baptême ». They enjoyed it a lot and were very well supervised.

If you have a chance to go to Malendure/Bouillante and if you like scuba diving, I can only advise you to go visit them. They are just a few meters away from the beach.
