A trip to the Maldives will never be complete without donning a mask and a pair of fins and experiencing the beauty that sustains these tiny islands. For beginners and experts alike, the Maldives must surely rank amongst the best snorkelling and diving destinations in the world. The combination of the diversity of marine life and the crystal clear water with visibility up to 60 meters cannot be found anywhere else. This is a view echoed by many pioneers of diving.
Snorkeling in the Maldives is a specialty common to all the resorts. All equipment required for snorkelling is available at the resorts, and there is no need to bring any equipment. However, any enthusiasts who prefer to bring their own gear along are welcome to do so. Almost all resort islands have a 'house reef' which is literally a stone's throw away. Those resorts with far out reefs have boats that take snorkellers to the reef. With a teeming variety of marine life at depths starting from one meter onwards, there is a sight for everyone, from waders on the beach to snorkeller's on the reef to scuba divers below.
Once you have gone snorkelling in the amazing underwater of Maldives, you are never going to forget the experience and will keep coming back for more!
