Why Snorkelling in Negril is the Best Snorkelling in the Caribbean

One of Jamaica’s hottest spots for tourism, thanks to beautiful all-inclusive resorts and pristine beaches, Negril also offers some of the Caribbean’s best snorkelling.

Beginners and novice snorkellers will find Negril’s shallow reefs perfect for taking the plunge. With wondrous formations like natural grottoes, technicolour coral reefs and majestic underwater cliffs, whether you’ve never snorkelled before or are an experienced diver, Negril delivers spectacular snorkelling for all ages or fitness levels.


Submerge yourself in a seemingly extraterrestrial world, relishing the welcome sensation of being far removed from everything on land- and the everyday. Meditate like a mermaid by swimming carefree, where your thoughts are on nothing else but the incredible, otherworldly visions before you.

Clustered dwarf tube sponges are palatial homes to tiny tropical fish, while large sea creatures like stingrays, Hawksbill turtles and nurse sharks make captivating cameo appearances.


Snorkelling in Negril is particularly good around the west end, and gear rental is very reasonably priced. An hourly rate of $5 USD is typical, while guided tours or scuba diving are more pricey but more in-depth (pardon the pun!)

Negril offers glass-bottomed boat tours, a great way to admire aquatic life while the vessel takes you in open water to a prime snorkelling destination.
