Snorkeling Locations and Marine Life

Wonderful beauties are often kept secret from the beachcomber, but become the reason so many make snorkeling their preferred activity. (© Best Publishing)

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 breath-hold diving can be enjoyed almost anywhere there is water. The greatest enjoyment will be in waters with good visibility and interesting things to see underwater.
