Snorkelling excursions at our destinations give guests the opportunity to view an array of unique and curious marine species that live amongst the colourful coral reefs that surround these remote islands.
Sightings include a range of pelagic fish and also bigger predators that come in from the deep. Snorkellers are always delighted at the sight of our resident Green and Hawksbill Turtles as they cruise along the reefs.
The reefs are also home to up to 15 different species of Moray Eels, as well as an array of shrimps, crabs and nudibranchs. There are also graceful Manta Rays, large shoals of species like Wrasse, Giant Sweetlips and Grouper as well as Nurse Sharks resting in the crevices of the reefs. Smaller species like scuttling crabs and flatworms can also be spotted amongst the colourful blooms of the sea fans and coral bommies.
All of these species can be viewed at our snorkelling sites along with a variety of other reef, pelagic and predator species. Enjoy a leisurely excursion at some of the best snorkelling sites in the Seychelles and get to view the rich marine biodiversity found beneath the shimmering waters.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
