Where to go? Snorkeltrip Curaçao
Curaçao has a very diverse topography. Most of the sites in the East have a shallow sandy plateau adjacent to the beach and a drop-off at a depth of 10-15 feet. When we compare that to the Western snorkeling locations the drop-off is considerably deeper there. This means as a snorkeler you will see way less colors. The light that enters the water has to travel all the way down to the coral reef, reflect and make its way back to your eyes…Every feet light travels through water filters out more wavelengths, eventually leaving only blue.
The reduction in colors also affects divers, however not as much as snorkelers as the reflected light doesn’t have to travel as far back to the divers eyes…in general divers are way close to what they are looking at.
The Caracasbay Peninsula is definitely one of the most interesting locations to snorkeltrip Curaçao. It offers fantastic reefs and amazing drop-offs. The shallow corals and some historical landmarks make this an overall winner. Contact us to find out more about this snorkeling adventure or click the link on this page.
