Snorkelling is a must in the Maldives where the sublime underwater gardens hold secrets and bountiful encounters. Some argue that diving is key to gain the most of this experience, but for those whose first preference isn’t diving, then snorkelling is ideal as all you need is just a pair of flippers, mask and a snorkel.
Aqua Sports & Fun now offers the chance to meet and greet turtles with the new Turtle Reef snorkel excursion. Guests depart in the afternoon to a nearby reef a mere 20 minute boat ride away and jump in after a helpful briefing.
You then explore the reef until the resident turtles show up not giving much attention to the snorkellers and being in its vivid world of crunchy corals and tasty algae. Green sea turtles and hawksbill turtles frequent this area although sighting are not guaranteed there is a high chance you’d be able to see at least one.
The excursion is a great way to cross of the big 5 encounters of the Maldives namely turtles, sharks, dolphins, manta rays and octopi.
Register yourself on this excursion and do not forget your underwater camera!
