How to Snorkel

Watch more How to Have Fun at the Beach videos:

If you want a better look at what's underwater, all you have to do is snorkel.

Step 1: Collect your gear
Find a mask that fits your face and a snorkel. Attach the snorkel by sliding its hook through the strap on the side of the mask. Carry the mask, snorkel, and fins into a shallow part of the water.

Step 2: Put on your mask
To keep your mask from fogging, rub saliva around its interior and dunk it in the water. Then, bring it to your face, place the straps around your head, and pull them until the mask is snug, but not tight. Hold your face underwater briefly to ensure the mask doesn't leak.

Before using a brand new mask, rub the inside with toothpaste -- not gel -- and then rinse it with warm water to help prevent it from fogging.

Step 3: Get used to the snorkel
Place the snorkel's mouthpiece in your mouth and breathe through it. Practice putting your face in the water and breathing in and out through your mouth as you rest your teeth lightly on the rubber tabs.

Step 4: Use your fins
Lift your feet out of the water, put on your fins, and push off the ground lightly to begin swimming. Kick your legs calmly and evenly to propel you through the water, keeping your fins below the surface and your body parallel to the sea floor.

Do not position yourself perpendicularly, as you are more likely to step on live coral or stir up sand and debris.

Step 5: Purge your snorkel
If water enters your snorkel, clear it by exhaling a short burst of air, similar to saying the word two. If that fails, lift your head out of the water, take out the mouthpiece, turn the snorkel upside down to drain it, and return it to your mouth.

Step 6: Go with the flow
Stay aware of your location, your energy level, and other divers as you relax and enjoy peeking in at the mysteries of the deep.

Did You Know?
The coral reef tract off the coast of the Florida Keys is home to over 5,500 species of marine life.


Made for surface snorkelling (from the age of 10).
Thanks to the panoramic field of vision and the possibility of breathing through your nose, it's never been easier to discover the underwater world than with the Easybreath snorkelling mask.

Drift Snorkelling Eight Mile Creek

In addition to snorkelling and scuba diving the series of ponds and channels that make up Ewens Ponds in Mount Gambier, South Australia, one can also snorkel from the ponds all the way to the coast via Eight Mile Creek. When in the channels and creek you can just drift along effortlessly and enjoy the ride due to the constant downstream water flow.

It's a stunning trip that takes just over an hour and the water is crystal clear most of the time and abundant with aquatic life. Unlike
many of the other aquatic activities in Mount Gambier which one needs to be a qualified cave diver to partake in, this one can be enjoyed by anyone who can swim (although a thick wetsuit is needed in addition to a mask and snorkel, as the water doesn't get any warmer than about 16 degrees centagrade). A highly recommended fun activity for all.

Powerbreather Redesigns the Snorkel for Swimmers and Divers

Powerbreather is dual snorkel system that is made from an elastic material so it fits comfortably around a swimmers head. Air is drawn in through the back of the system and exhaled though a valve in the front ensuring the swimmer only inhales fresh air eliminating snorkel fatigue. The swimmer does not need to turn their head to take a breath, and advantage which relieves pressure on the neck and promotes balanced muscle development from your pool workout. The system is also designed to keep water completely out for other forward strokes so swimmers can concentrate on their form and not their breathing. Check them out:
