Going on snorkeling trips with groups of other snorkelers to exotic destinations, off the beaten path, is a fantastic experience. These are often adventures on liveaboard boats, or resorts, to some of the best snorkel spots around the world, like Raja Ampat, the Maldives, the Komodo Islands, Palau, Wakatobi, and more.
Join Galen & Nicole traveling to arguably the best snorkeling spot on earth, Raja Ampat, the world's epicenter of marine biodiversity. We will be staying at Misool Eco Resort, in the middle of a 500 square mile protected marine reserve. You can snorkel right from the beach at Misool's stunning house reef, plus go on two snorkeler only boat trips every day, enjoy fantastic food, or hit the spa, all in a tropical wonderland.

We are always looking to bring you exciting trips to some of the best places on earth, like the one above. Many of our readers have gone on past trips that we have shared here. If you have never gone on one of these trips you can get a general idea of some of the types of adventures we like to share below.
Liveaboard Snorkeling Trips
There is a world of difference going on liveaboard trips designed for snorkelers, instead of a mixed boat with divers, because most of the time the boat is really focused on the divers, with snorkelers as an afterthought. On a snorkeler only boat, every spot you visit, from remote atolls to barrier reefs, has shallow snorkeling at perfect depths.
And being able to be immersed in snorkeling two or three times a day, in a different amazing spot each time, for a week or two, is really a great way to explore the ocean. You get to see so many different ecosystems and types of fish and coral reefs. It's a very different experience than snorkeling tours that go out for a few hours in popular tourist areas. These are more like snorkeling expeditions.
Most of the time these types of snorkel trips are full service, where your food is prepared for you, your rooms are taken care of, and all you have to do is get in the water, rinse and repeat.
Resort Snorkel Trips
There are also resorts with beautiful house reefs for snorkeling and small boats that can take you to wonderful nearby snorkeling reefs. You can choose whether you want to venture out or stay close each day. The best resorts are usually remote and include some meals with your stay. These spots make for great snorkel trips too.
Snorkeling programs like these are hard to find though. But we have a couple of different partners we work with that create these types of trips. And we plan on going on some trips with some new
companies in the near future to see what the service and experience is
So stay tuned. More great snorkeling trips coming soon!
