- ABOUT THE SPOT
Snorkeling in East London, Sunshine Coast, Eastern Cape South Africa
Glorious weather and warm waters make it just perfect for snorkeling adventure. East London offers three amazing snorkeling sites, namely the Glen Eden Point, Gonubie Point and the Orient Side.
The Glen Eden offers shallow waters approximately at 1.5 m/4 ft in depth and suitable for children as well, but due to the surrounding bay rocks, there is plenty of small and big fish. Here snorkeling can be conducted on both low and high tide, however it has to be an incoming tide because an outgoing one has strong backwash.
In the Gonubie Point and the Orient side with depths standing at 6 m/19 ft and suitable for children, snorkeling is normally done after the westerly winds and in calm conditions and offers smaller fish and the larger Knife Jaw and Silver Steenbras.
