Snorkeling offers all nature lovers a unique insight into the underwater world of the Algarve. Accompany the local guides of Blue Ocean Divers to the most beautiful places for snorkeling around Lagos and Sagres! The rocks covered with anemones, plants and corals together with numerous shoals of fish and other sea dwellers make the experience unforgettable.
In the so-called rock Algarve, we have different areas for snorkeling, which we reach from the shore. Depending on the current, visibility and personal conditions, we choose the best spot of the day for you. Thanks to the shallowness of the water, the view of the varied flora and fauna at the Algarvian coast is particularly good. Among our most popular places for snorkeling are the seahorse reef, where many of these little creatures cen be found, and the reef Pedra da Gaivota with impressive colourful fan corals.
- Meeting & Preparation:
We meet at the diving school on the premises of the Motel Ancora in Lagos. A hotel transfer can also be arranged, please contact us for this after booking. At our base, you get to know your guide and receive your snorkeling equipment. Changing rooms, showers and toilets are also at your disposal there.
As soon as all participants are ready, we set off for the coast with our jeeps. Together with your guide, you discover the fascinating underwater world of the Algarve. The local expert can tell you a lot about the local flora and fauna, but he will also be happy to give you tips on snorkeling techniques.
After the adventure, we return to the diving school, where you can end the day relaxing at the pool bar.
