When it comes to ocean sports, snorkeling is definitely one of the most popular out there – and for good reason! It requires little to no training and offers breathtaking views of the ocean from the surface. What exactly is snorkeling? Snorkeling is when a swimmer uses a tube (snorkel) to breathe at the surface while their face, mouth and nose are submerged into water, allowing them to look into the ocean and continue breathing.
If you enjoy snorkeling, odds are you would like scuba as well. Scuba diving allows for greater underwater exploration. Breathing is done through a regulator which is attached to an oxygen tank that you wear in a backpack type harness. Although more intensive training is required to become Scuba certified, your first time touching the ocean floor is an experience unparalleled to anything else. The reward is well worth the time, effort and investment.
