Our Mission – Exploring The Underwater World In a Responsible Way
We love the Ocean and its beauty under the surface. And people protect what they love…
Anett and Adam, the small yet enthusiastic Snorkel Around The World Team is on a mission to show you the ocean’s magic and inspire more and more like-minded people to discover and protect the wonderful underwater world. We believe that you agree on this with us, that’s why you are here on our website!
The Story Of Snorkel Around The World
We started snorkeling more than 10 years ago. Falling in love with the ocean and its beautiful creatures wasn’t difficult; our first underwater exploration happened in the Red Sea, which is famous for being one of the best places in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving.
We were so fascinated by the vibrant coral reefs and rich marine life that we started planning where to go next already on the way home.
Then, a few trips later, we simply decided that we’d like to visit as many snorkeling destinations as possible.
Our passion led us to launch this website, Snorkel Around The World, in 2015. We wanted to share our stories, photos and videos with fellow snorkelers. Also, we hoped to inspire people through our content to start their own journey to discover this wonderful world.
When talking about snorkeling and underwater ecosystems, we cannot ignore that an estimated 70 percent of the world’s coral reefs are already threatened or destroyed. So, we also hope that our content will make more and more people take action to protect our waters and the creatures living in them.

What can you find on this blog?
Snorkel Around The World has grown into a large source full of useful snorkeling information to help snorkelers at all levels.
On this website, you find articles on the following topics:
If you are a newbie and want to know more about snorkeling, our snorkeling basics posts will provide you with lots of helpful information like what is snorkeling, whether is it dangerous, when is the best time to snorkel, what to pay attention to as a beginner or how to stay safe when snorkeling.
Luckily, you don’t need much gear for snorkeling, but it is important that those few necessary pieces of equipment are good in quality and fit well. We tried and tested different masks, snorkels, and fins over the years and aim to help you choose the best gear through our gear guides. Besides the necessary basics, we also talk about what other products we found useful over the years (rash guard, coral-safe sunscreen, waterproof bags…)
Snorkel Spot Recommendations
If you want to know where you find the best snorkeling in the world or just looking for good snorkel beaches at the destination you are traveling to, check out our Snorkeling Places menu, where we review destinations in general and also specific snorkel spots (for example a hotel’s house reef) where we stayed and snorkeled.
Underwater Photography Tips
We often get the question of what type of camera we use to take our underwater photos so we thought that the best is to create a separate category on the blog where we share what the best waterproof cameras are and how can you take better photos when snorkeling.
Our Ocean Facts page is what you need to check if you want to know more about the creatures you can see while snorkeling and read marine conservation-related articles.
We are sharing our own experience and tips, our articles are written by us, by Anett to be exact, as she is taking care of the site’s content.
