Great snorkelling outside Ilha de Mocambique and Goa Island!

We took two trips with Ilha Blue. First was the kayaking combined with snorkelling around the Island. The snorkelling was actually surprisingly good, especially outside the eastern part of Ilha de Moçambique, where the corals had great colour! The second trip we took was to Goa Island for snorkelling on an old wreck. The snorkelling […]
