What is snorkelling and where to try it at Club Med

Taste the joy of snorkelling in the best spots in the world

Exploring the seabed using light equipment is possible, thanks to snorkelling. Immerse yourself with your family in a marvellous world that is hidden below the surface, from the beach or by jumping from the deck of a boat.

Discover the marine depths at your leisure

Have you ever tried snorkelling? Equipped with a mask, snorkel and flippers, explore the marine life at your leisure. If it's a bit nippy, you can always hire a wetsuit for a more comfortable session.

Discover the local marine life by snorkelling just below the surface. Hold your breath and take a quick dive down to admire the tropical fish. Once you surface, just blow into your snorkel to get rid of any water.

Below the water, you can relax to the sound of silence and beauty of this marine environment. Follow a shoal of fish, get up close to an anemone, tone up your muscles by gently swimming and work on your lung capacity. 

With Club Med resorts all over the world, you can enjoy snorkelling off the beach or as part of a boat trip. Equipment can be provided or hired and, depending on your destination, you can take snorkelling lessons with state-certified professionals*.
