We have been to Vilamendhoo 3 times and were considering booking a different resort for 2017 just for variety. We have not been able to find a resort that has snorkeling that is as good as Vila and as is easily accessible from the shore as Vila and is at the same price or lower than Vila. As a result we are now thinking of going back to Vila in 2017 and taking a snorkel trip from the island. Apparently, the snorkel trips for corals and fish (not the ones for whalesharks, turtles and mantas) go 3 times a week from Vila. Does anyone know if these trips usually have enough people to actually go and if so, where do they go to? Is where they go at least as good as the reef at Vila?
Also, for variety, we could try the night snorkel trip at Vila. Do you see different creatures on the night snorkel than during the day?
Thanks in advance for any information.
