Biyadhoo Night Snorkel - Torches & Price

Just a quickie, if I did pluck up the courage to do a night snorkel does the price include torches? Anyone know the price?

Many Thanks

Hi

Do not recall Biyadhoo offering a night snorkel trip - we tend to do our own with diving torches. Price for lamp hire is $5 and backup torch $3.

thanks, a regular said if I asked at the dive school they would take us on a night guided snorkel so was just wondering how much and if included torches. Thanks for letting me know how much the torches are. I wouldnt be happy going on our own, we love to snorkel but are both nervous of the water!

Just to update - Biyadhoo Water Sports Centre now offer night snorkelling at $30 per person No mention about torches but I would hope the price includes this. The days and times seem only to be advertised through the water sports board (outside the centre) so if you are interested go have a word with the staff member.

If it is majeed running the night snorkel from the water sports - he was a brilliant dive guide.

However I would buy a torch yourself off ebay £20-30 and do it yourself, may be start with a dusk snorkel so you get used to the change in light, then go to a full night one.

Hi Rach68,

Me and the wife did a night snorkel trip at Athuruga last year and it is well worth doing, amazing!!! do it if you can, scary at first but after a couple of minutes you will be fine, go in just before dark and its not so bad, like sg2 said.

Sorry but Majeed (and Monica) has left - a shame because he was very knowledgable about the reef, currents and sea life.

Hi Rachael

Did you manage to pluck up the courage to night snorkel when you were last there, if so how was it? Gordon's done a few night dives & says they're great, but I'd never thought about night snorkelling - thanks for the idea! In fact, Gordon's just gone & put out one of his torches for packing now. We're off on Thursday - whoo hoo!

Pluck up the courage to do a night snorkel - I did my first (with a guide from dive school) at Brayka Bay and was amazed at how different the reef looks at night.

Earlier this year on Vilamendhoo I did a couple of night snorkels and the variety of underwater life was quite incredible - stuff you don't see in the day. Not at all scary either.

The OH is a diver and so I was accompanied at all times at night, and also had the use of a torch ! Never go alone at night.

For the record I have my own mask, snorkel and fins - I use the small Trek fins so I am well away from anything that longer fins might inadvertently damage.
