This site is my personal account of off-the-beach snorkelling in locations where I’ve done it. The idea is to give a detailed, objective review of each snorkelling ‘site’ showing the type and condition of the corals and other sea-life there.

Each page has a map of the areas I have checked-out. The articles are comprised of photos and narrative about the areas shown on the map.
There is also some basic information about what it’s like on the surface (accommodation, transportation, etc).
The photos are mostly thumbnails. All images on this site expand to bigger versions if you click on them.
Don’t expect to find anything about places that cost $1000 to stay at. I can’t afford those. This site is about-off-the-beach snorkelling, mainly because it is cheap and easy to do. Occasionally, I’ll include stuff about a day-trip snorkelling boat trip, if it’s worthwhile and cheap.
