Pigeon Island, Sea Trek Helmet Diving
Imagine walking in zero gravity while surrounded by incredible aquatic life - that’s Sea Trek!  Sea Trekking is as close as it gets to the sensations of walking in space.  Take a walk on the “wet” side which brings you face to face with the marvel of marine life.  Your tour will begin from the gently sloping sandy beach at Pigeon Island.  All Sea Trek tours begin with a medical questionnaire and safety briefing.  You will be equipped with a specially designed Sea Trek helmet, which sits comfortably on your shoulders. Trekkers breathe freely underwater from a continuous flow of air pumped in to the back of the helmet through a hose attached to a pod system. There are no masks, no mouthpieces, no stress and no complications. You can even wear your prescription glasses, as your entire head stays dry throughout your underwater adventure.  Pre-certification is not necessary and swimming skills are not required. If you can walk and breathe, you can Sea Trek.  Just relax on the beach afterwards before heading back to the ship. 

Please note: Due to a natural environment, there is never a 100% guarantee that a particular species of marine life will be seen.  Bring towels, swimwear underneath your clothing, sunscreen, cameras and US cash if you wish to purchase additional beverages at the Jambe Des Bois restaurant in the park. You will be required to sign a waiver to participate in this tour.  Weight limit is 250 lbs.
