Snorkeling tips

To get the most out of your snorkeling experience, you may find these tips helpful. Also, the crew is always happy to answer your questions and provide any assistance.

Using the Mask

To try on the mask, move the strap and brush your hair out of the way. Gently push the mask onto your face. Gently inhale through your nose to seal the mask to your face. If the mask remains there unsupported, then it is making a good seal. It is best to try on and adjust the mask straps before entering the water. If any assistance is needed, one of the crew members will gladly help. In order to prevent the mask from fogging up while in use, there is a defogging solution available on the boat.

Using the Snorkel

To keep the snorkel upright while you are swimming face down on the surface of the water, you may need to adjust the snorkel strap properly on the mask strap. Now you can just float or swim along the surface, breathing through the snorkel and observing the underwater world below.

Fins

Fins aren’t really a necessity for snorkeling but they help you to move around more quickly so that you can see more of the underwater world. Before entering the water, one of the crew will provide you with a pair of fins. It is easiest to put the fins on while sitting on or near the diving platform. Walking with your fins on is a bit hard, not to mention that it looks awkward! When you wish to return to the boat, it is easier to take your fins off near the ladder and hand them up to one of the crew before attempting to climb out of the water. One of the crew is always on or near the ladder to assist you getting back onto the boat.

Snorkeling Hazards

The southwest coast of Cebu Island has a lot of corals. Coral is made by tiny creatures who go out and collect discarded razor blades and cement them together to build sturdy, defensible homes. Okay, I’m kidding. A coral is actually quite fragile and can be easily damaged by clumsy swimmers and generally kills it so please avoid contact with the coral. It is often razor sharp which is another reason to avoid contact.

For the safety of the marine life and yours, as a general rule of thumb, don’t touch anything.
