Snorkeling, is the practice of swimming through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. If it is done in cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be necessary. Use of the snorkeling equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater fauna and flora for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.

The basic piece of equipment used by snorkelers includes a mask (or goggles as some call it) that fits over your face allowing you to have clear vision. A snorkel, which is simply a pipe which attaches to your mask and sticks out the water above your head, allowing you to breathe. And fins or flippers, giving you more control and swimming power in the water. Choosing your snorkeling gear is important, as you want your gear to be comfortable and a perfect fit.

Snorkeling simply put, is dead easy, relatively safe and will expose you to something that would otherwise be inaccessible. Even for experienced divers, a snorkel can often be a wonderful break .
Perhaps snorkeling is after all the simplest and most cost effective introduction to what the ocean has to offer and from our experience, develop swimmers’ interest and curiosity about our rich marine biodiversity.
More people sharing their enthusiasm for the ocean and its creatures, the better chance our oceans stand. An that can only be a good thing!
