Snorkeling is a lot of fun, but before you go into the water, there is a couple of things you need to know. You need to choose your snorkeling equipment carefully and properly learn how to use it. Let’s consider some of these equipment.
How do you know if a mask fits well? Take your snorkeling mask and put on your face as if you are going to wear it, then you try to breathe in through your nose and see if the mask sucks up against your face without leaking air. If the mask will stay on your face when you let go of your hands then you probably have gotten a good fit.
Another nice piece of equipment to have is the snorkel. Well you do not have to have a snorkel, its just that it is really tiring to constantly lift you head up out of the water to breathe, so a snorkel solves that problem. There are several type of snorkels, amongst a variety is a special kind of that has a little float at the upper end. What it does is that when you go under the water the float closes off so the snorkel doesn’t fill up with water. It is particularly a nice type to have as you can enjoy an extended stay under the water.
Another nice piece of snorkeling equipment to have is a pair of snorkeling fin. Now if you are in really shallow water say two to four feet deep, you might not need the fins. But if you are in water that is a little bit deep or if you want to cover a wider area then its nice to have fins because they help you glide effortlessly through the water and when you are snorkeling you want to be very relaxed and just try not to work too hard so you can enjoy it.
Generally, just about any sandy beach for instance in Florida is going to be a good snorkeling when the water is clear, there are also few places where there are natural geographical features that makes snorkeling even more fun. Moving further north to the Tampa bay area there is the Egmont Key, another great place will be the St Andrews state park in Northwest Florida near Panama city. Otherwise, you may want to go book a snorkeling holiday abroad with interesting experiences like with the Punta Cana snorkeling or you may want to try snorkeling in Cabo for a change of scene and refreshing experience.
Now we have learned how to choose our snorkeling equipment and how to use them and how to go out on the water and thrive in one of our going to be best snorkeling experience.
