Blue Safari brings together pristine island destinations and signature experiences to create unforgettable memories. One of these exceptional activities is the chance to snorkel with Sailfish.
Board one of our custom-built vessels and head out on an aquatic adventure. Found in deeper waters off the coast, finding Sailfish makes for part of the experience. These streamlined predators rarely venture close to shore which means that encounters with the species will take place in the shimmering deep blue waters that surround our island destinations.
Once out in the blue, our team will deploy teasers off the side of the vessel to lure the Sailfish up from the depths. With the first sight of the silvery-grey or blue bodies, it’s time to jump in for a wild experience. Sailfish are usually found in small groups which means that snorkelers are likely to be surrounded by a swirling group of these magnificent creatures. The team on the boat continue to entice the fish towards the boat which allows guests to view the Sailfish as they charge the teasers at speed.
Averaging at 36 km/h, individual Sailfish have been recorded at 75 km/h - what a sight that must be! The Outer Islands is one of the only places in the world that uses these techniques for snorkellers and is the best place that you can safely get up close and personal with this impressive species.
