Snorkelling Holidays

It's perhaps the easiest and most relaxing way to get a glimpse of life under the waves. But where are the best places to go for that crystal-clear visibility, warm waters and diversity of underwater life. The world is full of incredible places for snorkelling trips. Whether it’s a relaxing change of pace at the beach towards the end of your adventure, a highlight for the oceanic enthusiasts or a serene way to see some wildlife, snorkelling is a perennial favourite with travellers. 

If you want to snorkel as a relaxing afternoon as part of your adventure, you’ll find your perfect dip when you drift lazily in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Costa Rica or in the Caribbean Sea on the shores of Cuba. If you’re travelling in Africa, head to the spice island of Zanzibar, birthplace of Freddie Mercury, for some chill-out downtime and incredible snorkelling opportunities right on your doorstep.

Dedicated snorkelling holidays

If a quick dip or two simply isn't enough time in the water, then our dedicated wildlife holidays will ensure you get that precious time you need. You could be snorkelling with whale sharks, sea turtles and manta rays in the Maldives, where the tropical waters are home to innumerable aquatic species. Our snorkelling holidays in the Galapagos Islands are up there as many people’s ultimate wildlife adventure. Seasonal variances and migratory species mean that life underwater changes on these islands, so check ahead to see what marine animals will be there when you are. December to May, the rainy season, is best for snorkelling as this is when the water visibility is best. For others, the iconic snorkelling holiday is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The largest living thing on the planet, it's a 2,300km ecosystem made up of 600 species of coral. Discover it by catamaran, sailing and snorkelling across this natural phenomenon.
