I am assuming you already know, or at least heard about our captivating Caribbean waters? OK, well snorkeling is just one way to enjoy them as well as to learn more about and experience our attractive marine life.
The minimal waves and warm Jamaican waters provides the ideal opportunity to see the aquatic life from near the surface.
It is said that the best snorkeling experience in Jamaica is offered in Montego Bay, and Doctor's Cave Beach, in Montego Bay features one of the most accessible spots.
For the more experienced and adventurous,
- The Coyoba,
- Dreamer Catarans
- and Royal Reefs
... provides exciting options.
Each of these reefs are full of wildlife. It is usually recommended that you hire a guide though as the as it is farther from shore and a bit rougher.
That said, most of our coral reefs are a little offshore and so typically requires a boat to get there.
And the good news is that many of our more established resorts in Jamaica do offer snorkeling adventures to their guests.
I know for sure that hotels in Negril, Montego Bay, Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios offers these as daily adventures.
Those trips typically comes with a boat, necessary gear, captain and crew.
Outside of the resorts, there is also two popular local attractions that offers this exciting pastime, the Dolphin Cove attraction - you swim with the domesticated dolphins, and the Mobay Undersea Tour, and there could very well be a whole lot more (for me to find out)
Be sure to check with your hotel's tour desk for more details and even more options.
Snorkeling is truly a wonderful activity that can be enjoyed by almost anyone. It requires much less instruction and training than scuba diving.
And although it is said that most people who have snorkeled have done so on group charters while on vacation, it is actually an activity that can be done almost anytime, anywhere.
And it is relatively inexpensive...
A small investment of $50 for basic snorkeling gear, some swimming experience, a body of water and an hour of time is all you need.
If you haven't already experience snorkeling in Jamaica, give it a try - you'll love the new world beneath the beautiful Jamaican and Caribbean waters!
