From turquoise South Pacific lagoons to plane wrecks in the Bahamas, these eight-day, fully catered sailing trips will take you to some of the best places to snorkel in the world. After a day spent spying on underwater life, resurface to sunbathe on white sand beaches and soak in thermal volcanic springs, topped up with sundowners on deck. Here’s our rundown of the best TRIPS by Culture Trip that pair sailing with snorkelling.
2 . Barracudas, reef sharks and rays star in this adventure around French Polynesia
Rising out of a blue lagoon, the volcanic island of Bora Bora is the focal point of this South Pacific sailing holiday. Explore coral gardens on a traditional Polynesian canoe before diving beneath the water to swim with barracudas, eagle rays and blacktip reef sharks (if you’re lucky) in the barrier reef. You can also enjoy snorkelling off the white beaches of Huahine – home to the sacred blue-eyed eel – and Raiatea, where you’ll have the option of touring a black pearl farm.

3 . Spot sea turtles on this Caribbean yachting trip around the Grenadines
Head to the Grenadines for some of the best snorkelling in the Caribbean. This trip will take you to the calm, teal waters of Bequia, the archipelago’s northernmost island, before you swim with sea turtles in the Tobago Cays, an uninhabited atoll within a protected marine park, surrounded by a barrier reef. You’ll also need your swimwear for a dip in the natural pool underneath Saint Vincent’s Dark View Falls, and to soak in the hot springs around the Soufriere volcano in Saint Lucia.
