One of the best things about snorkelling holidays is that you need very little. Not only can you enjoy snorkelling holidays without any formal qualifications but in terms of equipment, all you will need is a mask and snorkel and some fins; you may also want a wetsuit and weights.
Louisa, Original Diver
Here at Original Diving, we are almost as keen (almost!) on snorkelling as we are on diving as often, the best things to be seen in the water are close to the surface rather that at depth. What’s more, snorkelling is open to anyone of any age and experience level and is far less equipment intensive than diving. Just swim out from the shore or jump off the boat and you can immediately be swimming amongst beautiful coral and marine life.
Almost anywhere you find good diving you will also find snorkelling though of course some locations are more suitable for snorkelers than others (in fact on a couple of our trips you can only snorkel - humpback whales anyone?). Several members of the team are keen snorkelers so we can advise you on the best places to visit.
