Snorkeling Trips



Snorkeling is incredibly fun, relaxing and a wonderful way to explore the ocean.

Let yourself drift through the water, relax, and enjoy the ocean wonderland. When swimmers go snorkeling for their first time, the result is the same each time; they get addicted.



Snorkeling simply put, is dead easy, relatively safe, and will expose you to something that would otherwise be inaccessible. Even for experienced divers, a snorkel can often be a wonderful break.

Perhaps snorkeling is, after all, the simplest and most cost-effective introduction to what the ocean has to offer and from our experience, develop swimmers’ interest and curiosity about our rich marine biodiversity.

More people sharing their enthusiasm for the ocean and its creatures, the better chance our oceans stand. That can only be a good thing!

Let us explain to you what snorkeling is all about, what you need to know to keep safe, and how to enjoy your snorkeling adventure.

Snorkeling is the practice of swimming through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. If it is done in cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be necessary. The use of the snorkeling equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater fauna and flora for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.

The basic piece of equipment used by snorkelers includes a mask (or goggles as some call it) that fits over your face allowing you to have a clear vision. A snorkel, which is simply a pipe that attaches to your mask and sticks out the water above your head, allowing you to breathe. And fins or flippers, giving you more control and swimming power in the water. Choosing your snorkeling gear is important, as you want your gear to be comfortable and a perfect fit.

Can I eat just before a dive?

Yes. Actually it is a good idea to eat light before a dive. It is not recommended to have a full heavy meal before a dive.

Can I drink alcohol before or during the excursion?

No. Alcohol consumption is not recommended before a dive. It is recommended that heavy drinking should be avoided the evening before.

 

Can I wear my glasses under the mask?

No, but under the water, sight is magnified by one third more and we are only interested in seeing objects close to us.

Can I wear my contact lenses under the mask?

Yes, soft lenses can be worn, but we advise not to wear hard or medium hard lenses because there is a possibility to lose them. Sight underwater is magnified by one third more.

I am with my boyfriend/girlfriend during the holidays. I want to dive but he/she wants to scuba dive. What we can do?

You can book the day trip for both of you. He/she can dive with a tank and you can come like a snorkeler on the boat. Check here for the price.

I am with a friend who is on the Try diving program will we be separated?

No, you will be all on the same boat. The only time that you will be separated is while you are diving during your second dive.

It is recommended not to dive with an ear infection. Drops can be purchased at the pharmacy and it normally clears out after a week.

I have had a perforated eardrum can I dive?

If the ear was perforated within 3 months it is recommended not to dive.

I have Asthma can I dive?

I am deaf can I dive?

Yes no problem, as long as there are no internal problems with equilibration.

I have a pacemaker can I dive?

No, since little research has been done on pacemakers and diving, and due to the increase of pressure while underwater it is recommended not to dive.

I have a cold and a cough can I dive?

You can cough through the regulator while breathing underwater, if the sinuses are not blocked with mucus you can dive. If the sinuses are blocked than you will have a problem equalizing the pressure in your ears then it is recommended not to dive.

If the incisions have well healed and if the operation was not performed for medical conditions that will disqualify you from diving, then you can dive.
