As travelers, we often find ourselves drawn to bodies of water when planning a holiday. There is just something inherently soothing about being in and around water when we need a getaway, and for the adventurer, snorkeling is a great way to not only enjoy the water, but to explore it as well. Reef snorkeling is a fantastic way to explore the often-unseen aquatic wildlife and be amazed at the pristine beauty of the underwater world. The best places to dive are teeming with brightly colored fish, spectacular coral and plant formations, and clear waters. Bring your mask and your love for adventure to one of the top snorkeling spots in the world, and come back with a lifetime of amazing marine memories!
