Snorkeling

Our main snorkeling sites are in our Molinere Beauséjour Marine Protected Area (MBMPA) along the leeward west coast of Grenada.  These sites include the National Geographic acclaimed Wonder of the World – the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park – and neighboring reefs such as Flamingo Bay, Happy Valley, Dragon Bay and Grand Mal.  There is a MBMPA fee to enter the park. Divers pay $2 USD per day or $10 USD annually and snorkelers and boat riders pay $1 USD per day.  These fees are included in the cost of the snorkeling excursions and wrist bands are provided to all guests.

In an effort to accommodate all experience levels we make it our job to get you comfortable in the water to appreciate the beautiful marine life underneath. Snorkeling is for all ages, including children of which we have had kids as young as 2 years in the water with us. All Eco Dive snorkelers are provided with a flotation vest, mask, snorkel, fins and if desired additional flotation aids (wetsuit, pool noodles etc). Contact lenses can be worn underneath snorkeling masks however reading glasses or sunglasses cannot. Personal snorkeling equipment is welcome and we would be happy to help with suggestions for proper adjustment and use.

 Snorkeling Frequently Asked Questions:

  • “How do I keep water out of my mask?”
    Make sure that the skirt of the snorkeling mask (plastic seal that fits to your face) is flat with no hair stuck under the seal. If you are sporting a mustache you can either cut it off (yikes!) or put some Vaseline on your mustache to help provide a seal. Do not tighten your snorkeling mask too much as this flattens out the round shape of the skirt preventing a proper fit, and, keep the snorkeling mask strap in the middle of the back of your head with the strap above the ears. If you do get a small amount of water in your mask (lines on your face when you smile at the fish) blow out through your nose while applying pressure on the top of the mask frame.
  • “How do I keep water out of my mouth?”
    Be sure that you are holding the snorkel mouth piece in your mouth correctly by biting gently on the plastic notches in the mouthpiece. Let your lips fall around the outside of the snorkel mouthpiece completely. If you do get a small amount of water in your snorkel blow out and the water will shoot out either the top of the snorkel and/or depending on the snorkel style through the purge on the bottom.
  • “Will I sink?”
    No absolutely not. All snorkelers are given vests to wear and our sea water is very buoyant keeping swimmers and snorkelers effortlessly on the surface to enjoy the view
  • “Will I see sharks and do the fish and turtles bite?”
    On the calm leeward side of Grenada the chances of seeing a shark while snorkeling are small. So small in fact that one has never been reported on a snorkeling tour. The fish and turtles are harmless on all counts however will come close enough for that perfect Kodak moment. For the snorkelers that would rather not have fish blocking their view stay away from the feeding areas (where the fish congregate in beautiful thick clusters)
