5 Steps to Snorkeling Like a Pro!

Step 1: Choose the right gear!

Choose a mask that seals well: When you’re trying on a mask (whether purchasing one or renting one), you can check that it fits your face well by holding it up to your face, breathing in through your nose and holding your breath to create a suction and taking your hands away from the mask. If your mask holds to your face with that suction, then you have a good seal!

Choose flippers that fit well: It’s important that you don’t risk them falling off. It’s also important that they’re not too small, as you could cause your feet to cramp up.

Choose a snorkel with a dry valve: This type of snorkel has a float valve sealer that closes off the top of the snorkel should it be submerged (say, if you accidently tilt your head and the snorkel goes under the water or you get surprised by an incoming wave). This snorkel provides optimal comfort, especially for those new to snorkeling!

Consider using a floatation device: Some people prefer to snorkel with a waist flotation device that helps their buoyancy. These can often be rented with snorkel gear.

Consider using a wet suit: If you are cold blooded, you may find that a spring suit (a wet suit with short legs and arms) may provide extra comfort for you- especially if you plan to snorkel first thing in the morning when the water is the calmest! No one likes to get out of the water early because they got the chills!
