Snorkeling is simply diving any without equipment, and it is an incredibly fun experience to try. It’s an easy way to explore the ocean without having to wear heavy dive gear. You only have to dive a few meters underwater to discover the many aquatic wonders.
Scuba diving is not always the best option for discovering the aquatic treasures of Seychelles. Many visitors and tourists choose to snorkel. The island has the third largest barrier reef in the world, which remains very accessible with lagoons teeming with aquatic life and where you can practice scuba diving on most beaches of the island. The placid waters of the lagoons are shallow, you just need to know how to swim and of course have your own snorkeling kit.
The best thing about it is that it’s free. At the hotel as in your villa, you just have to visit the nearest beach to swim next to lovely marine creatures. There are also excursions for underwater hiking in the marine parks and other inaccessible sites from the beach. Sometimes buoys are placed at short distances from each other to indicate the ideal places for snorkeling.
The show is quite surprising even on the public beaches. The warm crystalline water will tempt you to immerse yourself even more. Snorkeling is not very dangerous in Seychelles but it would still be prudent to avoid dangerous fish such as lionfish or sea urchins, and of course avoid the sea currents.
