Pacific Islands Snorkeling Trips

Islands are spread out over thousands of miles of the Pacific Ocean. They belong to geographic areas known as Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia. Some of those islands are excellent snorkeling destinations. Our trips partner has created these Pacific Islands snorkeling trips to get folks like you to the best snorkeling places in the area. Trips can be based at resorts, or on liveaboard yachts, and sometimes a combination of both. We have more information down the page about the benefits of group snorkeling trips from resorts and liveaboards. Below are the current Pacific Islands snorkeling trips on offer.

You then make your way to Fakarava where you board the Aqua Tiki II catamaran for your 10 or 11 day snorkeling trip.

What Are These Pacific Islands Snorkeling Trips Like?

We are always looking to bring you exciting trips to some of the best places on earth, like the Pacific Islands snorkeling trips above. Many of our readers have experienced the best snorkeling holidays of their lives on these trips. 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, the reefs are too deep, and snorkelers are sometimes treated like second class citizens! On a snorkeler only boat, every spot you visit, from remote atolls to barrier reefs, has shallow snorkeling at perfect depths. And instead of being limited to only an hour on the water because of diving schedules, you normally spend and hour and a half to two hours at each spot.

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.

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 Snorkeling 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 Pacific Islands snorkeling trips.

Snorkeling programs like these are hard to find though. But we have a fantastic partner we work with who creates these types of adventures.
