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.

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.

Ocean Reef Aria Full Face Snorkelling Mask

This is the BEST mask for not-so-confident snorkelers and swimmers - the Aria full face snorkelling mask from Ocean Reef!

The mask offers incredible visibility and eliminates the need for a separate snorkel. The design allows the user to breathe naturally either through the nose or mouth and the dry top snorkel tube has a special valve design to help prevent water entering the mask.

The way the mask has been designed ensures that air circulates through the mask, helping to prevent the mask from fogging up like a traditional mask can.

World Bog Snorkelling Championships 2016

Surrounded by the magnificent scenery of the Cambrian Mountains Britain’s smallest town Llanwrtyd Wells with a population of around 600 people is often said to be the Welsh Lake District.

The area makes an outstanding centre for outdoor pursuits such as walking, mountain biking bird watching and bog snorkelling!

The quirky contest began in a local pub conversation when a local charity was searching for some fundraising ideas. This year's contest is now the 31st annual event.

Competitor’s, who pay a fee for the privilege, must swim two lengths of a 60-yard trench, which is filled with bogy brown slush without using conventional swimming strokes.

The weather was overcast with rain showers and occasional bright sunshine but it didn’t stop 146 brave contestants entering the weed-infested bog.

After just over 5 hours of snorkeling Dan Norman an18-year-old student from Wolverhampton took the men’s title in a time of 01:26.38.

In the ladies competition, Anna Lohman from Sweden took top honours; her time was 01:33:00

The World Record for the quirky event was set two year’s ago by 33 year-old Kirsty Johnson from Lightwater in Surrey, with a time of 1 minute 22.56 seconds.
