Dibba Al Fujairah Snorkeling Tour Overview
Snorkeling is a fun, safe, and easy way of seeing the incredible world beneath the waters of Fujairah. The snorkeling tour is suitable for both young and old and it’s also a budget-friendly water activity because you just need a diving mask and a snorkel. You can also wear swim fins (optional) if you want to propel faster in the water and without exerting too much effort. Plus, you don’t need to worry about wearing special clothing because you can just put on your regular swimwear and you’re off to go. To boot, there’s no pressure to be a great swimmer to participate in this activity as you can snorkel with a lifevest on.
On the way to the snorkeling site, you get to ride a luxury boat and enjoy amenities like a sundeck, sunbed, and its own private bathroom. When you get to the snorkeling area, you’ll be given your snorkeling gear and you’re all set to explore the marine environment and see the creatures that reside within.

Snorkeling spots and what you can expect to see
We do not have a specific snorkeling location in Fujairah because we conduct our tours in different places each day. Our instructor will get in touch with you before your trip date to verify the final location. We go to all snorkeling sites but to give you an idea, here are some commonly visited locations:
Dibba Rock is a small rocky island with long sloping sides that are covered by a reef and surrounded by soft and boulder corals on each side. The sea is shallower on the west side of the rock which is perfect for snorkeling which gives you the opportunity to encounter different species of turtles particularly green turtles and hawksbill. There’s plenty of fish to see here like the clownfish, parrotfish, porcupine pufferfish, bannerfish, double-line fusilier, lionfish, triggerfish, and the jawfish. Keep your eyes open for manta rays, devils rays, spotted eagle rays, dolphins, and blacktip sharks that are also be spotted cruising in these waters. If your timing is right, you might encounter seasonal visitors like whale sharks.
Sharm Rock is noted for its three small outcrops of rocks that peak above the surface. The rocks are covered in soft corals which draw a plethora of marine life, making it a treat for snorkelers. You have a chance to encounter lionfish, boxfish, batfish, bowmouth guitarfish, porcupine fish, and other reef fish. Watch out for other interesting creatures like turtles, morays, and blacktip reef sharks.
Snoopy Island, named after its shape that resembles the famous Peanuts cartoon character, is surrounded by pristine beaches and luxurious resorts.
