Snorkelling in Maldives is wonderful throughout the islands but nowhere matches the convenience and beauty to be enjoyed at Baros Maldives. This romantic, luxury Maldives resort is renowned for its spectacular house reef so close to the shore that can be explored by beginners as well as experts. For guests who want to be more adventurous, there are several opportunities that are conducted by our Marine Centre team:
House Reef Tour
This tour will begin in the Marine Centre with a relaxed 20-minute class about marine organism that are expected to be seen. Our Marine Biologist will show you the best spots around the island, take photos of you during snorkelling and will give you the opportunity to ask questions before, during and after the snorkel. Since we have a strict "do not touch"- policy on the island, this is your only chance to touch a few selected marine species under the supervision of a professional.
If you have already explored all the little corners, the nooks and crannies of the stunning house reef at Baros Maldives, it is time to join a Snorkelling Safari by boat and discover two more reefs with our Marine Biologist. Isolated reefs with cliffs and caves for animals to feed and live in are perfect spots for snorkellers to peep into this hidden fascinating world. Our Marine biologist will take photos of you during snorkelling.
Have you ever wondered what happens in the reef when the sun sets? Nocturnal creatures come out of their hiding places and make the reef their own for the night. Witness plankton glowing in the dark, a phenomenon called bioluminescence, which you can only experience during a night snorkelling trip. Armed with a powerful underwater flashlight, let yourself be amazed at how intense the reef becomes at night. Our house reef is the perfect setting for a night snorkel tour; it is sheltered and thus makes it a delightful and safe experience.
Private Snorkelling Lessons for beginners
Within just an hour in the water, beginners will learn the basics of snorkelling and will be taken out on our house reef in the safety of our Marine Centre team.
Coral Gardening Workshop
After a relaxed 15-minutes class about the coral propagation process, snorkel out with our marine biologist to look for broken, but living coral fragments in the reef. You will learn how to attach corals to our underwater tables and every six months you will receive an update on the growth of your nubbins as they develop on the table and attract numerous fish.

Private Snorkelling Experiences
Individual, personalised snorkelling experiences on the house reef or by boat during day or night time can be arranged on request at the Marine Centre.
