On Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, the snorkeling off Puerto Mogan is good for beginners since it is well sheltered. Experienced snorkelers tend to prefer snorkeling on the righthand side of the breakwater. TIP: For your safety, most of the Canary Island snorkeling dive sites require snorkelers to have a diver-down flag marker. The waters around the islands are very popular with windsurfers and boaters, which has resulted in some snorkeler deaths over the past few years.
Overall, Puerto Mogan is the 8th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 12 snorkeling dives in Canary Islands.
