Highlights

Explore the Maldives’ stunning array of marine life and corals on this snorkeling safari.

Keep your eyes peeled to spot sea turtles, reef sharks, and rays.

Forget about safety concerns with our certified briefings and guides accompanying you.

What to Expect

Following a safety briefing on responsible snorkeling, put on your provided fins, mask, and snorkel and jump into the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Keep your eyes open for sea turtles, reef sharks, and rays to which the Maldives is home; youngsters will want to be on the lookout for Nemo (aka clownfish).

Your snorkel guide will provide a safety briefing and highlight how to protect the reefs by being a responsible snorkeler, they will also act as your ‘spotter’ pointing out marine life that may not have caught your eye. They will assist less confident or inexperienced snorkelers, ensuring your equipment is comfortable and you feel safe in the water.

Sites vary depending on weather and current conditions but may include Coral Garden, Kurumba House Reef, Stingray City, and Kandu Giri. Our guides will do their best to spot the marine life you have at the top of your list to encounter but you can be guaranteed an abundance of colorful tropical fish and coral life.

Don’t swim? Don’t worry we provide buoyancy aids for all non-swimmers and our guides will provide instruction and coaching on how to float, snorkel and utilize the equipment. Our guide will assess your confidence and ability in the water to ensure it is safe to proceed to a coral reef area for your first snorkel encounter.
