Snorkel on Velavaru

Hi folks.

I´ve read about house reef is not close the beach as well

there are two daily boat trips to get there.

But , How far is it ? Considering I am an experienced diver, is it

possible to reach the house reef starting on lagoon ?

Is there another way to get it , maybe taking the regular dhoni from island to IOV and starting from there ?

Thanks is advance for any tip.

sorry .. not good news. the inocean villas are not really located closer to the reef. you are really down to taking the daily free snorkel trips .

beware that the number of participants ins restricted to 25 - so sign up quick or miss out.

the reef is not all that exciting though and the large group of snorkelers pretty much chases away most large fish . unfortunately the call back to the boat is after max one hour of snorkeling.

you might do best sticking to dving off the boat ..
