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.

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:

Michael Phelps Focus Snorkel

The new MP Michael Phelps Focus Snorkels have a unique low profile, hydrodynamic shape that reduces drag and eases breathing. Training with the Focus snorkel will help to increase cardiovascular strength and lung capacity. The adjustable light weight head bracket has an integrated cushion to give a comfortable fit. The silicone comfo-bite mouth piece prevents jaw fatigue and a one way purge valve can be used to any clear excess water.

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.

Full Face Snorkeling Mask Review (ABTECH - GoPro Mount Panoramic Snorkel Mask)

This is a review of the Abtech Full Face Snorkel Mask. This mask is advertised as having a GoPro mount and a panoramic view. The only thing I was impressed with was the actual snorkel piece which did not let water in. Otherwise, I would never give this to you if you were my friend.
I am very sorry not to be able to give this a better review but these are honest reviews and I will never endorse any snorkel mask or any products that I don't truly like.

Check out the mask on Amazon:

THE PRICE OF THESE ITEMS DOES NOT GO UP because they are affiliate links. It simply means Amazon shares part of the profits with me for referring you to them and not other shopping websites.

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.
