Snorkelling is great fun, easy to learn and an ideal way to build up confidence in the water.
Snorkelling is a great introduction to underwater sports and can be the first step towards scuba diving.
BSAC's President HRH The Duke of Cambridge is a keen supporter of BSAC snorkelling.
We will provide the equipment for trainee's use, but you may wish to purchase your own after training.
Our instructors have a BSAC Snorkel Instructor certification so you know you'll be in safe hands.
Safe snorkelling requires quality equipment made for snorkelling or diving, so ensure that it is intended for the use. Avoid low quality equipment that may have an attractive price but may fall down on comfort, effectiveness and durability.
If you are on holiday in a warm country, it is essential to protect exposed skin from strong sun while snorkelling. Water-resistant sunscreen creams can still wash off in the water while snorkelling so it is wise to also wear a t-shirt.
For longer sessions, or in cooler water, then thermal protection will be needed. Either a Lycra or neoprene wetsuit which, while providing warmth, will also protect from abrasion or stings.
So why not learn how to snorkel safely before going on that exotic holiday, contact us and be snorkel safe.
