Snorkeling in India

You’ll be surprised by how many destinations there are for snorkeling in India. Thanks to the expansive coastline and good weather, snorkeling in India is a fun, exciting adventure activity that you can do for most of the year. Just imagine swimming with schools of colourful fish and coral, immersing yourself in a completely different world underwater. One of the ultimate vacation spots, ideal for both snorkelling and diving, is Goa. Explore marine life in the hidden pockets of Goa, and lounge on the beach to relax as well. Other popular destinations include the Andaman Islands and Tarkarli in Maharashtra.

Snorkelling in India: Goa

With its warm water and pristine yellow beaches, Goa is always a beautiful place to go to. It’s one of India’s favourite holiday destinations. But under the surface of the sea lies a whole new world filled with stunning marine life. One of the most popular snorkeling destinations is Grande Island in North Goa. If you’re staying around Calangute, Baga, Arpora or Candolim, you’ll be picked up and taken to a boat for your snorkeling trip. The boat ride out to the island takes you past sites like Millionaire’s Palace, Aguada Jail, and more, and you might even spot some dolphins if you’re lucky!

When you stop at Grande Island for your snorkeling trip, you can spend some time at the deserted beach. After that, adjust your snorkel and mask, and step out into the warm tropical waters. You’ll float over beautiful coral formations and some of the most magnificent marine life ever. You’ll spot parrotfish, angelfish, snappers, Moorish idols, and barracudas. End your snorkeling trip with a delicious Goan-style lunch and a beer at hand as you relax on the beach.

Other islands to explore for snorkeling and diving in Goa include the Wreck of Suzy, Cove of Shelter, and Bay of Bounty.

Snorkeling in India: Andamans

The crystal clear turquoise waters of the Andaman Islands make for a perfect snorkeling destination in India. You can head over to the Havelock Island where you’ll be sure to find breathtaking marine life, remnants of sea vessels, and stunning coral reefs. Other spots for snorkeling include the Cinque Islands and the Passage Island, known especially for reef shark sightings.

Snorkelling in India: Tarkarli, Maharashtra

On the Konkan coast, you will discover this gem of a destination for those who want to try snorkeling in India. Tarkarli is accessible by road if you are coming from Mumbai or Goa. Snorkeling here is recently discovered, so it’s far cheaper than most other destinations.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a beginner in water activities, snorkeling is a fun activity that you’ll enjoy.

Best season for snorkeling in India

Wherever you choose to go for your snorkeling trip, make sure the weather is warm. The summer months are the best bet, but you can also choose the months of October and November. Avoid snorkeling in India during the monsoon months, or just before the rains arrive, because visibility is usually lower at this time.
