Snorkeling is a great way to observe Africa's beautiful underwater life without all the extensive training and complicated equipment required for scuba diving. With approximately 1700 miles of coastline opening on to two oceans (the Atlantic and the Indian) and its different climate areas, South Africa offers a wide range of underwater environments. Of course, the South African coastline has no shallow coral reef, but it has instead seagrass meadows, rocky coves and kelp forests, with plenty of amazing and endemic marine species. There you can get up close to surgeonfish, octopuses, scorpionfish and butterflyfish, as well as penguins and sea lions.
