What to Expect
You will begin your snorkeling tour from the Diving Center in Hikkaduwa at 8:00 am. Other timings can be arranged but the visibility of the seafloor gets lower later on in the day. In addition, many inhabitants of the sea hide in the shady crevices beyond sight as the sun climbs higher. Your boat ride will take up to 20 minutes to get to the best snorkeling spot in Hikkaduwa.
Snorkeling is the sport of swimming with a diving mask and snorkel tube on. Fins are often used for the feet too. The snorkel tube allows the swimmer to breathe for a long time with his or her face underwater. As such, the sport is used to view the ocean floor and colorful sea life, amongst other things.
While snorkeling in Hikkaduwa you will be able to see many beautiful sights such as colorful and bright living corals, the large silver-blue shoals of small fish, that hermit crab that peeks out for prey, the pretty flowery looking anemones that hide danger in their midst, the clownfish that wanders among the strands fearlessly and much more. If you bring an underwater camera, you will be able to take some great photos too.
