Hi, going to stay in Mirissa for a week in January. Wonder about the snorkeling possiblities at that time? I've been there before, then in August, and then the sea was too rough for snorkeling, but I understand it will be calmer in January? Also read that maybe the only snorkeling directly at the beach should be around the big rock at the end of the largest bay in Mirissa. Is that true, or is it possible too snorkle at the smallest of the three bays on the east side of the beach? As the waves are smaller there.
Otherwise, is a snorkle trip with a company in the area another option? What does that cost, and is it worth it?
