Snorkelling is a popular recreational activity, particularly at tropical resorts and reef locations.
The primary appeal is the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving.
It appeals to all ages because of how little effort is required. Snorkelling equipment involves a mask and a long tube known as a snorkel. A snorkel is used for breathing air from above the water surface when the wearer’s mouth and nose are submerged.
