Seychelles offers great snorkeling opportunities to the traveller seeking to catch a glimpse of the rich marine life surrounding the Seychelles Archipelago.
Seychelles offers some of the most amazing snorkeling spots to be found anywhere else in the world.
Because the islands rest on a shallow continental plateau, large coral reefs grow around the islands, creating calm and protected waters for the snorkeling enthusiast to take advantage of.
Many species of fish can be seen while snorkeling, some like the Parrotfish seem to have all the colours of a rainbow, other species include angelfish, damsel fish, lionfish, sea turtles, rays and various Corals.
A number of the best snorkeling spots include:
When on Mahe, Anse Royale (near Ile Souris), Port Launay and Baie Ternay Marine Park.
Bel Ombre Anse Du Riz and Anse Major (require a 2.5KM walk across Morne Seychellois National Park to get there)
When on Praslin, the best place is Coco Island from Cote D‘Or.
Other marine parks are Ste. Anne, Silhouette and Cusieuse.
