Snorkeling (also known as skin diving) is one of the best ways to have fun in the water. It is also a fun and healthy way to spend a vacation, even so as the holidays approach. You don’t need a lot of money or a lot of specialized gear to enjoy the undersea world that most people never get a chance to see. All you really need is a mask and snorkel. However, flippers can make it easier to maneuver underwater and you will be able to swim farther distances with flippers.

Remember some safety tips about snorkeling and you will have a much more enjoyable time:

  1. Always tell someone where you are planning on going! If you are at a resort by yourself, let the front desk know and have them check to make sure you check in with them again.
  2. Know your limitations. Don’t swim in deeper water or stronger currents than you can handle. If you’re struggling or get tired, let your guide know and they’ll help you out.
  3. Check the weather. In the ocean, storms can approach very quickly and a calm and sunny day can turn into a tempest in a matter of minutes.
  4. Have proper safety gear. This includes lifejackets and following your guide’s indications.

Where to do snorkeling?

That being said, snorkeling can be enjoyed from almost any beach where there is a coral reef and swimming is safe. Try to find an area with snorkeling within about 150 feet of shore. If the best places to see fish and aquatic life are much farther out than that, it may be too safe to swim that distance. This is when booking a snorkeling tour comes in handy. They take you on a boat to the best spots to see the coral reef and marine life.
