Reef shoes are also an important part of the gear that must be given prominence to, as they prevent your feet from being bruised by the jutting edges of the coral reefs that abide in the shallow waters.

It is indeed important to take heed of the advice and tips that are given by the experts upon your arrival on the islands. The information given on the best snorkeling spots as well as the entrance points to the reef will help you to stay on course and enjoy hours of floating on these mesmerizing waters.

Planning your holiday well in advance will also help you to get the best of snorkeling experiences in Maldives. Certain islands possess a house reef that many swarms of colorful marine life find refuge in, which can be found within easy swimming distance, while resorts that do not have a house reef arrange trips to locations where coral reefs can be found on deep waters. Needless to say the beginner is best advised to choose a resort with a house reef that he may snorkel safely, without being threatened by high currents and the daunting sights of the endless depths.
