Snorkelling & Diving


From our inception in 1989, Reef & Rainforest has believed that, in order to gain a true appreciation of nature’s abundant diversity, it is necessary to explore the underwater realm as well as the terrestrial (hence our name).

Snorkelling and diving are possible in much of our repertoire, but are most rewarding in this selection of itineraries, each with particularly attractive marine modules.

Snorkelling is mainly enjoyed on shallow coral reefs in, say, the Maldives, Belize, Indonesia, Galapagos, Borneo and Madagascar, with warm offshore waters full of colourful fish and corals, turtles, manta rays and whale sharks. However, in northeast Sri Lanka three species of great whale can be seen far offshore from mid-March to mid-April. We have been lucky enough to snorkel with all three and can show you how, so please ask us (though don’t leave it too late as the best guides get snapped up quickly): it’s a life-changing experience you won’t want to miss. Our staff are all keen divers and/or snorkellers, so please call to discuss the best underwater options for you.
