Maldives Snorkeling

The island nation of the Republic of the Maldives is made up of 26 atolls in the Indian Ocean about 400 miles southwest of Sri Lanka. The white-sand islands of the Maldives are surrounded by countless colorful and varied coral reef formations that are perfect for snorkelers to explore. Sea turtles, reef sharks, puffer fish, sea cucumbers, eels and butterfly fish are just some of the fascinating native sea life snorkelers can encounter in the Maldives. Most resorts offer snorkeling gear and there is no shortage of outfitters to supply snorkelers outside of the resort areas. The South Ari Atoll is one of the top tourist destinations in the Maldives, and it features 27 resorts that cater to tourists. The calm waters of the Maldives are crystal clear and warm, making this island republic a top destination for snorkelers venturing off the beaten path.
