Snorkeling is a popular activity in Eleuthera and is often done with swimming goggles, a snorkeling tube, and fins. Eleuthera is blessed with wonderful clear waters which are surrounded by lively reefs, filled with wildlife and great for snorkeling. Vacationers, young and old, will absolutely enjoy snorkeling. It’s a delight for all ages and all senses. Shallow snorkeling “dives” offer great visibility and are a great perspective into the rich marine life that surrounds the Bahamas.
Most of the eastern and western sides of Eleuthera and Harbour Island are surrounded with reefs or cliffs that travelers will be thrilled to explore while snorkeling.
If snorkeling is an activity that you like, we suggest that you bring your snorkeling equipment along with you from home. There are few stores that offer renting or selling snorkeling gear in Eleuthera. If you’re lucky, the hotel you are staying at may be in the position to lend you snorkeling equipment.
Vacationers can snorkel directly from the beach or from a boat. There are many boat snorkeling opportunities and professional snorkeling companies to choose from.
Oftentimes, snorkeling is offered as part of a scuba diving boat trip or as a full snorkeling expedition. Excursions companies will often charge you for the boat trip and for the rental separately.
