Guided swims

If you want to explore the rocks themselves, join this guided swim/ scramble around the caves and rapids. This event includes a return powerboat ride to the rocks. You'll need a wetsuit (or shorts and t-shirt) and footwear that you can wear in the water as the rocks can be sharp in places.
