First things first, let's talk gear. While snorkeling may seem like a gear-heavy activity, all you really need are the basics: a mask, snorkel, and fins. Of course for your snorkeling trip with us, we will provide you with all of these. When selecting your mask, ensure it fits snugly on your face without any gaps, allowing for a clear view of the underwater world.

Snorkeling tips

If you are a beginner snorkeler, here are a few useful tips to help you enjoy the experience:

Practice Proper Breathing: Practice breathing through your snorkel before hitting the water. Breathe slowly and deeply, keeping your mouth sealed around the mouthpiece to prevent water from entering.

Master the Float: Get comfortable floating on the surface before attempting to dive down. Practice floating facedown while keeping your snorkel above water, using your fins to propel yourself gently.

Stay Relaxed: Relaxation is key to a successful snorkeling experience. Keep your body loose and maintain a slow, steady pace to conserve energy and reduce fatigue.

Respect Marine Life: Observe marine life from a respectful distance, avoiding touching or disturbing fragile corals and creatures. Remember, you're a guest in their environment.

Buddy System: Snorkel with a buddy for safety and support. Keep an eye on each other and communicate using hand signals to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
