Snorkeling Trip Algarve
I had a fantastic snorkeling trip near Alvor with Ines and Pedro, owners of Zip & Trip! Both marine biologists and experienced nature guides. They organize among others, snorkelling trips for small groups to non-touristy places. You can add that on your list things to do in the Algarve!
Ines and Pedro invite me to join on a snorkelling trip in the Alvor area. We met at the square in Ferragudo, and with their minivan, we picked up a Spanish family with 2 kids.
Although it is July, the seawater is still pretty cold, so we all got a good quality long sleeve wetsuit. We started at Praia do Alemao. After some instructions in the water and nice information, we hiked over the cliffs to a small, unspoilt beach near Alvor.
Snorkeling near Alvor
The hike to the beach is fun and daring. I loved the excitement of doing something new and outside my comfort zone. You get to spend a good 2 hours in the water, enjoying the beautiful sights under the sea and visiting various hidden caves and deserted beaches near Alvor. Ines and Pedro will help you with your snorkel gear and if you are not the best swimmer or don’t feel confident there are floats that you can hold onto for your own comfort. I was surprised the variety of fishes you see! Not only I was very happy, but the Spanish family were also thrilled, and had a good laugh too! A nice way to get connected with each other, and do something different during your holiday to the Algarve.
The whole day was a massive fun experience one I will never forget, the way you feel when you are one with nature and just enjoying every minute without technology is just what you need when on holiday. Take a step out of your comfort zone and get this snorkeling trip booked.
I promise you won’t regret it. After all the hard work laughs and fights against the waves, you get to look forward to a yummy, juicy picnic on the beach afterwards. I would love to do this snorkeling trip again. And I will do, as they do another snorkeling trip at Caneiros beach, close to Ferragudo.
