What is snorkeling?

Snorkeling is when we use a mask and a small tube called a snorkel to see and breathe with our face in the water. This allows us to observe the underwater world and the wealth of life it hosts. Snorkeling is a fantastic way to begin to learn to swim in the ocean.
If you are not confident in the water or don't know how to swim, Don't panic!  We will introduce you to your equipment and the underwater world.  All this while learning to  snorkel and swim in the lagoon.
