Snorkelling is where you swim along the surface of the water whilst keeping your face underneath and using a mask and snorkel to enable you to continue to breath at the same time. The mask lets you see clearly underwater so you can enjoy underwater life whilst swimming along.
The PADI Discover Snorkelling course teaches you how to enjoy watching life below the surface and comfortably breathe with your face down whilst swimming along.
