A Whale of a Good Time

Always on the lookout for fantastic new snorkeling destinations, this Nat Geo piece caught our eye.

Looking for a snorkeling destination your water-loving friends have never experienced? If you find yourself in Taiwan, you should check out Green Island for a unique snorkeling experience.

It’s way off the beaten track, but it’s worth the effort to escape the high-density, urban experience of Taipei for the lush, exotic waters of Green Island.

Left Behind

Remember that movie Open Water? The one about scuba divers left behind by a careless dive operator? The one where, you know, they get eaten by sharks?

Well, this snorkeling tourist was left behind on an Australian snorkeling outing, but he met with a happier ending.
