Best snorkel Island or maybe island hopping???

HI! My husband and I would like to plan a trip to Figi with the main focus on snorkeling everyday. A combination of off the beach snorkeling and boat tours. We are interested in finding the best island that would have snorkeling comparable to other great places we have snorkeled like the Carribean, Hawaii ,mexico and Australia. We would be willing to split our time between several islands if transportation between them are not too much of a hassle or very costly. There are sooo many islands it is over whelming trying to choose. We want a nice clean place but don't need a resort. We aren't sit around type of people. Always wanting to be snorkeling or hiking. So what would you suggest please? Thanks!!

Getting between islands isn't cheap, even the ferry options liz.

There are numerous places to snorkel in Fiji, but noticed you added this to the Coral Coast forum. The Coral Coast isn't the best place to snorkel at all, as it's on the main island of Vitu Levu where Nadi is located.

Try some of the islands in the Yasawa's like Botaira resort, it has snorkelling off the beach. This group of islands is accessed via the Yasawa flyer, or sea plane.

Check the Awesomeadventurefiji.com or www.coconutsandcoral.com both have trips accessed via the flyer. Even if there isn't snorkelling straight off the beach most resorts take you on snorkel trips daily.

What's your budget? It will be easier to recommend resorts. happy planning

You can snorkel straight off the beach at any of the Manamuca Island resorts. Islands that have marine sanctuaries offer much better fish viewing.

If you want to island hop - consider a small boat cruise. Something like this sailing adventure: captaincook.com.fj/fiji-sailing-adventures/d…

or island hopping trips from: www.awesomefiji.com are reasonably priced staying in basic resorts. Definitely worth paying the extra for their Full Monty package as the inclusions are worth way more than what you pay.
