The best snorkel site at Astove - The top of the reef is very shallow (1-2m) 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 best snorkel site at Alphonse - The 1km 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.
The best snorkel site at Cosmoledo - 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.
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
