Snorkelling is one thing that is on almost everyone’s bucket list. But when people are getting ready for their snorkelling tour, there are certain things one must be aware of before one go-ahead for their tour.
This is one of the most crucial things that you need to make sure of before taking going ahead. Find the right mask that fits you and make sure that when you put the mask on your face without the straps, it should stay on the face. If you feel that there is air leakage, it might not be a good fit.
This is one of the best ways to prevent your mask from fogging up. Try to make sure that you are using a non-toxic, biodegradable and alcohol-free defogger to clean you mask. There is also a simple solution where you just have to put some after and rub the mask before putting it on.
You cannot go snorkelling with the snorkel. It is a mouthpiece which fits in your mouth. Make sure that the snorkel that you buy has to fit right in comfortably. Also, you can add a purge valve which is a nice feature that lets the water out and not in. Also, make sure to select the snorkel which does not hold you head down rather allows you to float easily.
A bandana is very important to help keep your hair out of your face. This will help protect your scalp from the sun and also prevents things from slipping off.
If you are not a very confident swimmer, it is important that you rent out or purchase a floating device which is a great way to keep you confident in water while you swim.
If you are going to be snorkelling in a cold place, a wetsuit will ensure that you stay warm. The wetsuit also offers protection from any particles that might sting you in the ocean and also make sure that there is no sunburn. The size of the wetsuits depends on the place where you might be going to swim.
Always when you are looking to buy sunscreen, make sure that it is biodegradable to help protect the reefs. This way, you are not harming the reef as well as ensuring that you are safe from the sun.
Fins can help ensure that you have control over your swimming in the water. It allows one to make heavy the right turn when in strong waters. You can go for short fins or long fins depending on your taste.
