Do you love exploring magnificent underwater places like @shikeerashikeera
Snorkeling is one of the most exciting (and cheapest) ways to discover a destination. You can explore what exists beyond the ocean’s surface with just a few pieces of gear and a strong sense of adventure. We’ve asked ten travel bloggers, where’s the best snorkel spot in the world?
1. VANCOUVER, CANADA
Canada may not be the first spot that comes to mind when you think of snorkeling and scuba diving. However, for those willing to brave the chilly waters, something special awaits; the opportunity to swim alongside the local seals. Sea Dragon Charters in West Vancouver offers ocean lovers the chance to spend an afternoon out in Howe Sound, home to many of the areas seal colonies. The tour includes three stops known to be home to the local seals where guests can zip up their wetsuits and join the curious creatures in the water.
Obviously, touching and chasing are not allowed, however, the seals are pretty curious. If you are slow and quiet, they will allow you to get quite close. - @hannahlogan21
2. THE CENOTES, MEXICO
The Cenotes in Mexico were fantastic snorkeling spots for two reasons.
First, the visibility in these caves is incredible. I had never snorkeled in waters that clear before. The walls and your sights set the limits: you see almost as well underwater than when you have your head out. Second, the cenotes offer a very original experience, different from the common snorkel spots full of marine life and corals. While snorkeling in the cenotes, I was very impressed by the rock formations and the beautiful light. That’s what makes the cenotes stuck in my head as one of the best snorkel spots in the world.
3. SãO MIGUEL ISLAND, THE AZORES
There are tons of great things to do on São Miguel island in the Azores, and one of them is snorkeling in the crater of a submerged volcano at Ilhéu de Vila Franca, a natural reserve, with only 400 people per day allowed to visit and tickets sell out pretty quickly – if you want to go there, you will have to show up very early to bag a spot.
What place would you recommend for snorkeling?💙
