Snorkelling in the Maldives

The clear warm waters in the Maldives are perfect for snorkelling and conditions are ideal for both adults and children.

The white sandy beaches on all the islands allow for easy access into the sea and all our resorts can supply all the necessary equipment to enable you to explore the reefs and experience the myriad colours and wonderful marine life.  The waters are famous for their visibility – normally at least 25m.

You are unlikely to want to snorkel in just one place, so be sure to hop on to any boat rides heading out to explore new areas.  If you’ve never snorkelled before, there will be someone at the resort who can give you or your children an induction lesson to get you used to the kit and comfortable exploring the warm sea and everything that it has to offer.

Many guests decide, once they’ve got mastered snorkelling around, that it would be interesting and exciting to ‘upgrade’ to SCUBA diving.  Should this happen to you too, you can be assured that this would be simple to organise and a pleasure to experience as all our featured resorts have excellent instructors and diving facilities.
