From our kayaks, we’ll slip on our snorkel gear right on the kayaks and then dive into the sea to explore Utila’s beautiful underwater reefs!  Your guide is also a marine naturalist guide who will give you some great insights and information on what you are seeing, including fish and invertebrates identification, but also behavior and general marine ecology of the coral reefs.

* Note: for most of our snorkel spots, we’ll be getting into the snorkeling FROM our kayaks- we will show you how before we leave and let you practice so you feel comfortable.   If you have physical limitations which may prevent you from getting back into your kayak from the water, let us know and we can find alternate options. For a little longer paddle, we can get in to some great snorkeling from shore.
