The Algarve is located along the Atlantic coast and the first thing that you need to be aware of is that the sea here is not like the Mediterranean! Most of the year the seas are calm with gentle waves but during the winter it can get pretty rough and it is best to avoid snorkelling during these times!
In the summer the waters along the Algarve coast warm up to be about 20 degrees and this is far more comfortable for snorkelling but it is still a good idea to consider wearing a wet suit if you intend to be in the water for some time.
