  • The island snorkeling trip is very common. The life at the island is fabulous. Sighting turtle and a shark (non lethal) is very easy apart from other sea life. You can snorkel all around the island but try reaching by 0800hrs. Carry your own water and munchies. It's advisable also to carry your own snorkel kit. One can also walk to the top of the island and around it. Both are separate sides. Kindly adhere to instructions of the wildlife dept personnel. If not comfortable with water request for a guide who can snorkel you.
  • Great experience. At the first glance we are feared to do snorkeling. But to get a life experience we tried that. No doubt that will be your greatest hours in your life. We still have great memories. We were under water for 6 hours , eager to visit there more and more. Followed a sea turtle , and saw 3 coral sharks who aren’t aggressive. Corals and huge varieties of fish are there. Visit Srilanka and visit pigeon islands, a place like nowhere
