Night Snorkelling

The entire island of La Palma is a starlight reserve, which means minimal light pollution and maximum visibility of distant galaxies from our night skies. 


The underwater world is also a different one at night time. While some animals go to rest, others use the darkness to feed and find a mate. Some species only become visible at night, like tiny bioluminescent algae that sparkle like a thousand stars in moving water. 

Snorkelling in La Palma's clear nights, when the transition between the sky and the ocean is almost seamless, is a unique and unforgettable experience. Explore La Palma's nightlife with us.


Night snorkelling experiences start just after sunset, so depending on the season some time between 18:00 and 21:00.
