BLUE SAFARI’S BEST SNORKELLING SPOTS

Our snorkelling sites have been carefully selected to ensure the best experiences for our guests. Each site varies in depth and showcases a unique combination of species and awe-inspiring sights. Discover the spectacularly pristine and untouched coral reefs of the Seychelles at your leisure from the ocean’s surface.

THE WALL
"This world-renowned site is within walking and swimming distance from the house"

The Wall is the best snorkel site at Astove! The top of the reef is very shallow (1-2 m), allowing snorkellers to get very close to the wide variety of marine life. The drop-off starts here and so people of all swimming abilities can get a great look out into the blue. For those that can free dive the wall provides a multitude of swim-throughs and overhangs to explore.

THE CHANNEL
"This site is incredible during the pushing tide when crystal clear waters flow into the Alphonse lagoon."

Our team’s pick as the best snorkel site at Alphonse. The 1 km Alphonse channel provides an incredible snorkel that takes people on a ride through several different habitats (coral gardens, seagrass beds and patch reef) and so provides a great opportunity to see a wide range of marine life in a single snorkel session.

GRANDE PASSE
"The pristine coral reef makes this one of our favourite snorkeling sites in the Outer Islands"

Cosmoledo’s best snorkelling site! The wide channel between Wizard and Pagode provides some excellent snorkelling opportunities with expanses of coral and seagrass beds allowing snorkellers to see a wide range of life including turtles, rays and reef fish.

MAIN CHANNEL
"With a depth of 4-6 m this channel provides excellent snorkelling particularly on a pushing tide."

The best snorkel site at Poivre. Nurse Sharks and lots of stingrays of differing species can be seen here making their way into the lagoon, along with a wide range of reef fish. If snorkellers are lucky, they might even bump into a Manta Ray.

SNORKELLING OUR ATOLLS

Our snorkelling destinations are home to stunning marine species, untouched coral reefs and exceptional underwater scenery. The snorkelling sites around our atolls offer wonderful experiences at different depths. Join our specialised team for an exceptional underwater experience.

The different atolls allow for great snorkelling opportunities as well as the chance to view and snorkel with Manta Rays. Alphonse island has a satellite tagging project running and various Manta cleaning stations have been identified which ensure sightings with each excursion.

At Astove and Cosmoledo Atolls, Manta Rays are often seen around the surrounding reefs and large numbers of Mantas are also sighted around Poivre Atoll. This gives snorkellers the chance to snorkel with these graceful creatures and allows for wonderful photographic opportunities.
