Best time for snorkeling

Monsoon in Goa is beautiful but it restricts water activities for obvious reasons. Though, the Arabian Sea is calmer than the other oceans, but monsoon rain makes it violent. So, all the water sports and recreational activities underwater are closed during the 4 months of massive rainfall. The best months for snorkeling are the months of October to May. You can plan your trip to Goa anytime in these months. Your trip will definitely be fruitful as you can enjoy everything that Goa offers.
