Guided Snorkeling Tours
Guided snorkeling is conducted on a daily basis, weather permitting of course, and usually best time of the day is noon, when sea conditions grant more site options- and allowing to visit some most interesting off shore reefs- and the whole duration of the activity is something more that 2 hours with about 1,5 hour spent at sea. Some days of the week, snorkelling trips are announced within few days notice (when excellent sea conditions for snorkeling are expected or there are best chances to spot some interesting aquatic life), so also you can get in contact with us closer to your arrival and see what coming trips there might be.
Snorkeling sites include places like this one bellow, especially for confident swimmers that are happy to snorkel at off shore reefs:
