Snorkeling is a special type of swimming that allows observing underwater life without carrying heavy equipment. The name derives from a special shaped tube called snorkel. People wear a diving mask, align a snorkel and have fins in order to lessen the efforts while swimming. The body stays on the surface and the person can spend a considerably long time watching the underwater beauty.
Snorkeling is very easy and fun for everybody. It needs practically no prior training so what you need is only a wish and some chap equipment. The activity is perfect for family vacations because kids especially love unusual time spending in water, seeing corals, colourful stones, sea flora and fauna in all their beauty. Usually, snorkelling is practised in warm calm water so all you need to wear is a simple swimming suit. But sometimes the water is a colder so snorkelers wear special waterproof swimming costume which is easy and do not change the experience significantly.
