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.
Skin diving is snorkelling while making breath-hold dives to observe aquatic life, up close and personal. It’s a great way to explore the underwater world when you’re not able to scuba dive or if scuba diving just isn’t your thing.
