When you imagine the best snorkeling destinations around the world, you probably think of warm tropical destinations, like Hawaii. Surprisingly, Alaska is actually a great destination for snorkeling – you just need a dry suit.
Luxury cruise line Silversea offers their guests a unique snorkel excursion opportunity, showcasing the breathtaking underwater beauty found just off of Alaska’s shores.
Disembark your ship in Sitka and head to the local dive center. As the waters average 50 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll be fitted with snorkel gear as well as dry suit in order to avoid getting wet or cold.
Descend to the beach and enter the crystal-clear waters. Expect to see a wide variety of colorful marine life, including sea stars, sun stars, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, crabs, and many types of fish. A certified guide accompanies you to explain the sights in depth.
This Alaskan snorkel adventure is just one of many excursions offered by Silversea in Alaska. For more information about Silversea’s Alaska itineraries for 2017, talk to your Stellar Travel advisor today.
