http://divingcatalina.com

Snorkeling is one of the best ways to explore a tropical vacation spot. It gives you a sense of appreciation of its wild side, specifically its marine side. It is a simple and easy activity to do with a countless beautiful sights to see at sea. As a manner of seeing the ocean, snorkeling has a lot of advantages. First, it’s easy as with little training, you can easily snorkel, provided that you already know how to swim. Another advantage is that it is cheap compared to other types of water activity. There is no need for expensive and heavy equipment to be purchased or rented. You just need a mask, fins, and a snorkel which you can easily find from dive shops such as the Diving Catalina CA dive shop.

Snorkeling is feasible in almost any body of water, but snorkelers are most likely to prefer locations where there are minimal waves, warm water, and something interesting to see near the surface. Shallow reefs which range from sea level to 1 to 4 meters are generally favored by snorklers. There are a lot of best places to snorkel from around the world, and here are some of them.

5. Buck Island, St. Croix, USVI
An underwater trail makes navigating easy. Three species of sea turtles that call the park a nesting area, tropical fish and young elkhorn corals are one of the many attractions of this particular snorkeling spot. If you are still improving your snorkeling skill, look for the operators sanctioned by the park as they are quick with instruction and help. The park is available all year, but check out for wind speed as they make the waters choppy.

4. Maldives
Grab your snorkel gear and immediately explore the colossal natural aquarium that begins just off the sand. Lagoon calm waters will greet you and the atoll’s reef abounds with pretty Indian Ocean fish species. If you are lucky, you may even be able to spot several lion fishes.

3. Rurutu and Huahine, Islands of Tahiti
From August to October, humpback whales are present in the waters of the islands of Tahiti to mate and give birth, however encounters are not guaranteed. When the boat approaches a whale or a pod, you will snorkel into waters almost as clear as snorkeling through air. Snorkelers however were not allowed to approach the whales, but through their curiosity, they may approach you.

2. Corn Islands, Nicaragua
The Caribbean still offers secluded hideaways that are perfect for snorkeling. Nicaragua’s Big Corn Island presents angelfish, southern stingrays, green morays and yellow fairy basslet fish which seem to swim upside down near overhangs.

1. Casino Point Dive Park
The Casino Point Dive Park is a paradise on earth, especially for snorkelers. It is a marine sanctuary that is protected by the state of California for decades. The park is free of mainland pollution as it boasts clean clear water, undersea gardens which harbor dozens of fish species such as the bright orange garibaldi which are known to eat right out of your hand! Instructors will orientate you with equipment used, and then teaches you about the algae-based ecosystem. Snorkeling tour instructors will even feed fish while you are snorkeling so you are able to witness a feeding frenzy an arm’s length from you. This is not only a snorkeling tour, but also a marine eco-tour.


With these 5 Best Places to Snorkel, your snorkeling experience can turn into a wonderful adventure!
