AN ACCESSIBLE AQUATIC ACTIVITY

For the whole family !

Snorkelling is a simple and fun activity that every family member can join - children, parents or even grandparents! The only requirement is the snorkellers must know how to swim and be moderately comfortable in the water. For younger children, accessories such as buoys, inflatable float and vest give them extra buoyancy. They can save effort swimming and enjoy longer snorkelling experiences.

SIMPLE EQUIPMENT

Minimum effort, maximum fun !

Getting started with snorkelling is easy and relatively inexpensive! All you need is:

– A mask

– A snorkel

– A pair of fins (optional for beginners who may prefer using aquashoes while learning proper finning technique)

Other than the basic FMS (Fins, Mask, Snorkel) kit, you can utilise other equipment, such as a top or shorty to keep you from the cold and rocky bottoms.

If you don’t feel comfortable with a snorkel, try Subea’s Easybreath full-face mask. This innovative product allows you to breathe underwater through both your nose and mouth. If you want to keep your head dry, you can still enjoy the snorkelling experience with Olu, our new observation buoy that enables you to explore the aquatic life!
