So you have finally got your much deserved summer vacation and you are thinking to spend all of your free time on a white sandy beach, sborkeling with your family.
Good quality time for good quality memories wouldn’t you agree?
A snorkeling vacation is the perfect vacation
In order to have the best snorkeling adventure there are a few things that you need to take into consideration before even starting to plan your vacation.
1. Choose your destination wisely
If you plan to introduce your family to the wonders of snorkeling for the first time pay extra attention to your destination. Make sure to choose the best snorkeling hot spot for your family that is both beginner and child friendly. There are a lot of guides online that you can read to make sure that your loved ones will have the time of their life.
Also, gather information about tourist activities and snorkeling schools you can find around the area.
2. Your snorkeling gear
You definitely want to buy your snorkel mask and fins before you leave home. A good snorkel set is what will make the difference between a great snorkeling adventure and a complete fail. Usually the snorkel sets you find at most beach shops are either cheaply made or very expensive, or both.
Rentals are no options either as the gear has been usually used far past its natural lifespan and nobody really wants to use a mouth piece that had been in some stranger’s mouth for hours and probably not even properly sanitized.
Make sure you choose the right snorkel gear for you and your family before you start your vacation so there will be one less thing to worry about.
Here are a few tips and tricks on how to choose the best snorkel set.
3. Learn how to use your snorkel gear before you get in the water
