Loggerhead Turtle (No Longer Drawing Breath) – Corfu by Slugwash, on Flickr
Turtle says Hi! :
the ear wash is probably expensive for what it is – it smells just like isopropyl alcohol – I think the advantage is that it rinses the ears easily – other things might work as well.

Dai – see earlier comments – I’m probably the last person to be giving snorkelling tips, but as the week just past has turned me into a snorkelling guru, here’s what I’ve done……….
Edit – I’m based in San stefanos in the NW corner so that’s the beach shown below. Boat hire available for the beach but can be booked in advance.
From the beach – google earth showed some rocks just offshore so I just set off from the beach. Depth 3-7 m where I’ve been, 7or 8 as yet unidentified species, very interesting for me as a novice. The beach off achavari shows similar formations so you should have some (IMO) good snorkelling from the beach. Visibility excellent once past the breakers.
From a boat – we hired a boat for the day – 85 euros plus fuel (another 30 but I took a detour) and went to diablos, just off the NW corner of corfu. Anchored between the islands and swam all day – crystal clear water, depth anything from 2-10m – same species, just bigger. We did see an octopus the size of a dinner plate, as well as an unidentified ‘eel, type thing that legged it as soon as I got close.

I do a fair bit of snorkelling on holiday 🙂 Especially on the west coast of Scotland. I bought one of these Aquascooter last year & it’s been great for getting to more remote snorkelling holes & seeing more in general. It pulls three people no problem & runs all day on one tank of fuel. The only problem I’ve got is trying to pry it from the hands of my lad 🙂
