Snorkeling like a pro is easier than it might seem.
A great way to explore and enjoy the ocean is by learning how to snorkel. Snorkeling is an activity that can be fun for the whole family, and it can be both an easy and fun experience. It’s quite simple to get the hang of it but to do it like a pro, you need to pay attention to a few different pointers. Follow the tips and professional techniques below to learn how to snorkel like a professional.
How to Start
Start by making sure that your mask fits comfortably on your face and isn’t pressing under your nose or between your eyes. The skirt of the mask should be sealed around your face, leaving no gaps. Make sure that the mask is in good condition and not damaged.
Know the Parts of the Snorkel
Before snorkeling, it’s important to know the different parts of the snorkel itself. This can help you in the long run. Be able to identify the snorkel, snorkel mouthpiece, purge valve, mask skirt, mask frame, mask lens, and the snorkel splash guard.
Practice Proper Breathing
To master the art of snorkeling, you should know how to breathe properly while the snorkel is on. Get used to breathing with the snorkel even if there is a bit of water inside. This can happen, but it’s nothing to worry about. Start in shallow water, keep your head upright, and breathe normally yet cautiously.
Practice Moving Around
Once you’ve mastered breathing with the snorkel, it’s time to practice positioning your body and moving around. You’ll be able to float face down while in the water and breathe normally at this point. To move around, you’ll need to use your arms, legs, or both. Either flutter kick or frog kick if you’re wearing fins and be sure to keep them below the water.
