Snorkeling

The sport of Snorkeling is a leisure activity there is no competitive aspect whatsoever. The main purpose of Snorkeling is seeing what lies beneath the waters surface, often including coral reefs, shipwrecks and rock formations.

Those places are the perfect habitat for numerous marine species, ranging from small fish to mollusks to larger animals, such as Sharks, Manta Rays and even Dolphins and Whales.

Anyone who knows how to swim can go Snorkeling. It is a very easy activity, which is why it is so popular. It does not involve more than swimming on the surface while looking down through goggles.

A snorkel hence the name Snorkeling, is a tube that is used for breathing, allowing Swimmers to keep their heads in the water.

Additional gear are fins for increased movement. When Snorkeling in colder waters, wet suits or dry suits may be worn.

Snorkeling often is overshadowed by Scuba Diving when it comes to viewing underwater life. It does, however, have the huge advantage that it doesnt require any training or expensive equipment. Snorkeling can also be done by all ages.

Common Injuries

Snorkeling does come with inherent risks and it is possible to get injured whilst doing the sport.

Because snorkelers spend significant time floating on water, with their backs facing the, often tropical, sun, severe sunburns may occur without their even noticing.

Those tropical waters are generally also inhabited by various animals that may pose a threat. Although attacks, stings or bites are quite rare, they do occur and the results could be serious, or even lethal.

To avoid sustaining any serious injury whilst Snorkeling, it is important that you always go in the water in a group, stay close to the shore or boat, and away from rocks and do not touch the marine life.
