What is Snorkeling?
If you are brand new to this adventure, snorkeling is the act of swimming through water with a breathing tube. You will wear a mask so that you can see underwater, but no other equipment will be needed for you to see all there is to see in the beautiful waters of the Gulf, here near Fort Walton Beach.
There are definite benefits to snorkeling that you will want to experience while here. Just a few ways that snorkeling will make your Emerald Coast memorable include:
- Relaxation: There are no goals to set and work towards when you snorkel. It is all about enjoying the beauty under the water. No work deadlines, no homework, no chores, no bills that need to be paid, and no life worries. Just a way to glide under the water and watch the world beneath the waves pass in front of you.
- Discovery: In the warm, inviting waters of the Emerald Coast, you will discover things under the water that will amaze you. Just experiencing the aquatic life that lives there, the shapes, colors and combinations, will fascinate you, giving you memories that will last a lifetime.
- Exercise: Snorkeling is not only a great leisurely activity, but also a way to exercise in one of the best ways possible. Exercising through swimming is a great way to work out your muscles, without putting strain on your joints, ligaments, and tendons. Once you find out for yourself, you may make it a part of your everyday routine while you are down here.
What Do I Need to Start Snorkeling?
Equipment: Well, you do not need much to start snorkeling, that is for sure. However, the equipment you do need should be quality, and something you can trust. At Flipper’s Adventures, we show you all you need to take with you when you head out for the waters.
You will want a mask, a breathing tube, and some swim fins. Be sure to find a mask that is comfortable for you and test it to ensure it does not leak. Keep adjusting things until the mask feels just right on your face. The mask and straps should seal around your eyes and nose so no water should come into the mask at all.
Dip into the Water: Once you are all set with equipment, it is time to go into the water. For our Fort Walton Beach snorkel adventures, you will be laying down flat on your stomach in the water. Place your mask and breathing tube area at a 45-degree angle. Bite down gently on the mouthpiece and let your lips seal around it.
Start Breathing Easy: Breathe slowly and deeply. Be careful of what you are doing. There is no need to panic, you can always lift your head out of the water if necessary. You are right there on the surface of the water. You will inevitably have water go in the snorkel over time, just be sure not to inhale the water. Clear the tube by exhaling forcefully.
