North America, surrounded by three oceans, is a very special snorkeling area. Its vast underwater space makes it a unique destination, marked by a wide diversity of marine environments. The Caribbean Sea, which touches part of Florida and Mexico, is without doubt a must for snorkeling in North America. Nurse sharks, green turtles, barracudas and a wide range of tropical fish all swim among the Caribbean’s coral reefs. But there are other high-quality snorkeling spots, especially in the Gulf of California and the Gulf of Mexico.
