SNORKEL OR SKIN DIVE CLASS
The Snorkel/Skin Diver certification helps you explore the underwater world from the surface. While snorkeling is limited to peering down from the surface, skin divers generally venture further than snorkelers, making frequent surface dives to interact with aquatic life, up close and personal.The course provides basic information on snorkel equipment, proper weighting, finning techniques, ear equalization techniques, clearing water from your snorkel and performing effortless surface dives.
Prerequisites: Must be at least eight years of age. The best part is after you complete the course you will be able to observe life from the surface and be able to participate in ocean restoration projects.
