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 it 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 shows participants the best spots around the island, takes photos during snorkelling and answers questions before, during and after the snorkel. Since we have a strict “do not touch” policy on the island, this is the only chance to touch a few selected marine species under the supervision of a professional.

Snorkelling Safari

For snorkellers who have already explored all 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 guests during snorkelling.

Night Snorkelling

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 can be seen during a night snorkelling trip. Participants are armed with a powerful underwater flashlight to explore the reef at night. Our house reef is the perfect setting for this night snorkel tour as it is sheltered and close to the shore.

Private Snorkelling Lessons for beginners

With just an hour in the water, beginners can learn the basics of snorkelling and will be escorted to the house reef in safety by one of our Marine Centre team

Coral Gardening for Sponsors

We invite those who care about the marine environment to become part of our reef regeneration programme by sponsoring a coral frame. Those who wish to participate in the gardening process will learn how to attach corals to our underwater tables. Every six months you will receive an update on the growth of your nubbins as they develop on the table and attract numerous fish. Read more about our Coral Rehabilitation Programme here.

Discover the Secret of the “Black Coral Reef”

The Maldivian seascape and scattered isles are renowned for their stunning beauty. Divers who sail on our dhoni can enjoy the unforgettable beauty as they explore the secret of the “Black Coral” reef. Our experienced snorkelling guide introduces participants to this special site: a reef wall that is home to a multitude of beautifully-coloured fish. Let our snorkelling guide shows the way, inspiring confidence and giving helpful tips to make the most of this glimpse into the watery world.

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.
