Usually, you snorkel in the ocean, but here, you snorkel in the river.

And because fresh underground water is bubbling from the ground into the river, the water is so crystal clear (no colours at all) you can see up to 50m straight ahead. No ocean snorkelling can provide you with such views.

You can see all the rocks, fallen logs, fishes (schools of them, tiny ones, plate-sized ones, hundreds of colours... just right next to you). As there is a current, you don't need to swim much. In fact, sometimes, you may have to hold on to logs and backpaddle just to slow yourself down. At one point, the river is so narrow and the current so strong, you have to keep your arms to the side and torpedo through at an amazing speed, twisting your body here and there.

This is one of the most exhilirating snorkelling experience I had ever experienced and one that is surrounded by such astounding nature!
