Snorkeling in Goa
Snorkeling is a great way to see what is under the water. The state offers beautiful beaches and ocean, which is exactly what you need for this. The Indian Ocean is home to many beautiful and colourful animals and fish, you will be amazed.
What is Snorkeling?
Snorkeling is named after the tube that goes from your mouth and up above the water, this is the snorkel. The snorkel allows you to breathe while your face is underwater. The snorkel is attached to a mask. The mask is made of plastic with a glass window. The plastic mask seals onto your face stopping any water getting in. This allows you to open your eyes, look through the glass and see all the beauty around you, underwater. Normally we have our eyes closed when our face is underwater, this is what makes Snorkeling so wonderful.
It is possible to snorkel even if you cannot swim. You can enjoy Snorkeling in shallow water and you just float on the surface and look around. It can even be a good way to start to learn to swim. If you can swim you will be able to go further and explore more.
We take you to the famous Grande Island for your Snorkeling adventure. Your vacation in Goa will remain incomplete if you don’t visit the Grande Island. Also called the Grande Island, Ilha Grao, and the Ilha Grande, this is the best place in Goa for scuba diving and snorkelling. A visit to the Grand will remember for a long time. Grande Island is on the Arabian Sea. It is very close to Vasco da Gama, just off the coast. It is west of Vasco da Gama in the Mormugao peninsula. The only way to reach the island is by a boat because of its mid-water location. Armed with a snorkel, face mask and fins, you skim the surface of the sea for a chance to see some exotic marine life. Your body will be half-submerged in the water. Visibility is good, so you can see clearly. Snorkel a bit below the sea and you will see many colourful corals too.
On the way, you will get to enjoy sightseeing from the boat like never before. You will spot the Aguada fort and jail, a millionaire’s palace and a lot of other yachts and cruises on your way to the island. The best part of this boat trip remains in the fact that you will witness end number of dolphins twisting, twirling and having fun in the Arabian Sea but again that depends on luck and nature.
On your trip, you are served light snacks, fruits and refreshments. On your return leg of the journey, you are served with packed lunch which culminates your hilarious trip with your return to the Jetty.
