Ocean Love

Snorkel Spots is here to share all the magical snorkeling locations around the world.
Our goal is to share the marine magic and encourage others to protect our oceans.


Snorkel Spots is a map of the world's snorkeling locations. Use the map to discover new holiday locations, underwater places to explore or perhaps something closer to home.

Snorkel Spots was created by Dr. Chris Dowsett. Chris has always gravitated to the ocean after growing up on Australia's Sunshine Coast. However it was a trip to Maui and spending hours in the water with Maui's famous Green Sea Turtle's that convinced him to make this map. It's been a labor of love ever since.

Snorkel Spots is volunteer-led. This map only exists thanks to our brilliant volunteers who maintain, update and improve the map. Know a snorkel spot that isn't on this map? Please tell contact us and we'll add it asap.

There are over 500 different snorkeling spots mapped on this site ... so far. And we're far from done. We continue to add more and more sites each month thanks to the snorkeling community.

We have two long-term goals for Snorkel Spots. The first is to share the love of snorkeling so that people experience and appreciate our valubale oceans. The second is to support ocean conservation. Snorkel Spots is a not-for-profit project and all money raised through this site will go to ocean conservation. Because as Jacques Costeau said, "The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat."
