Enjoy the fun and adventurous summer activity of sea scooter snorkelling on one of the most beautiful islands in Greece - Zakynthos!
Zakynthos is the third-largest of the Ionian Islands and is situated to the west of the Greek mainland. It is a popular summer destination, mainly due to its stunning landscapes, crystal-clear waters, and beautiful beaches. Underwater activities such as snorkelling are very popular in Zakynthos due to the visibility and warmth of the waters!
For this excursion, the experienced instructors will use a sea scooter. Using a sea scooter, also known as a DPV (Diver Propulsion Vehicle), can enhance your snorkelling experience by allowing you to cover more distance and explore underwater areas with less effort. You can choose from different options for this snorkelling adventure, which vary depending on the location and length of time.
You will start by meeting the qualified instructors at the diving centre in Zakynthos. They will go through a safety briefing and you will receive your snorkelling gear (a mask, snorkel and fins) before heading to Tsilivi Beach, a family-friendly beach known for its soft golden sand and clear, shallow waters. For the first option, you will stay at Tsilivi Beach, using the sea scooter to snorkel in the shallow waters. You may spot some underwater marine life, such as colourful fish and sea urchins!
For the second option, you will travel to Trentanove Islet, located near the beach. To get to this destination, you will travel on a boat and jump into the waters. On the islet, there are sunken ruins of a temple and a house that have been integrated into the underwater world of the area and compose a beautiful landscape for exploration.
The final option is a longer excursion at Makris Gialos Beach. You will travel from Tsivili Beach to the northern part of the island. From the beach, you will start your snorkelling exploration while gliding in the water along the coastline in a circular route with your DPV. You will discover the beautiful Poseidonia, reefs and small caves. For each excursion, you will be accompanied by the instructors to ensure your safety, with a small group.
