Snorkeling is the least expensive way to participate in exploring the underwater world. It can be done with a minimum investment in equipment. You will enjoy snorkeling anywhere the water is clear enough and shallow enough for you to see the features of the site you want to view. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you must see the bottom to enjoy snorkeling. For example, in some parts of the world, people swim with whales in water that is hundreds of feet deep, where the bottom can’t be seen, but the water is clear enough to easily watch the whales.
Participating in snorkeling is a good way to see if you are interested in going further and participating in skin or scuba diving. You may decide that you’re only interested in snorkeling, or you may find that snorkeling opens a “deeper” interest in exploring underwater.
Snorkeling and skin diving are adventures that take place in the outdoor environment, usually in the ocean or in a lake and there are a number of fun and exciting activities that snorkelers can take part in depending on the location.
The material presented in Snorkeling Activities is designed to introduce some of the more popular activities that are available to snorkelers.
The material presented in this online program is designed to act as a primer, or supplement to in-water instruction in snorkeling or skin diving from a qualified diving instructor.
