    First Time

    My first time snorkeling was pretty embarrassing. I couldn't grasp the idea of breathing through my mouth into that crazy tube - I usually breathe through my nose unless I'm singing. I was making this honking sound trying to breathe, and everytime I smiled the mouthpiece shifted...

    Underwater World

    Snorkeling opens the door to a world of magic and I never knew what an integral part of me it was until I moved away from my little island. We had a few favorite spots back home and it is amazing to see these creatures in their habitat.  The brightness of the colors, how...

    I've Never Been Snorkeling...

    I've never been snorkeling but I will someday. It sounds like a lot of fun. Be one with the fish and the water type stuff. It will be cool.

    It's So Relaxing

    I went to the Caymen Islands a couple of years ago with my family.  One of the things we did was go snorkeling.  We swam about a mile out and the water was so clear, and the fish would come right up to us (we had fish food with us).  It was so relaxing...

    No Way. I Hated It So Much. ...

    No way. I hated it so much. It felt terrible and I couldn't focus on the beauty around me at all. Mostly it was just trying desperately not to choke.

    Like A Dreamtime Painting...

    ...I love to Snorkel and I am fortunate enough to live in a country with countless kilometres of beautiful beaches.  Any given Sunday in Summer when the Pony Club season has wrapped up for a year you can find me and my daughter snorkelling one of WA's gorgeous beaches...

    This is something I haven't tried yet.  I think I may enjoy it but I can't tell if I've never done it!

    It's Funny I've Always...

    It's funny I've always wanted to try that.  I love fish and to see all the stuff that lives under the sea would be very exciting for me.  However I did see this show once on how dangerous it was.  You wouldn't think so but apparently sometimes people get a little...

    Yes, I Love It.  What a N...

    Yes, I love it.  What a new world opens up underwater.  I did this at Loreto Mexico.  My friend picked up a sea cucumber and it squirted black ink in the water.  I would love to do this again.  I'd also love to swim with the dolphins in Hawaii.

    Been a Long Time

    I learned how and went Snorkeling in High School.  I loved it!!!  I wish I could go back to it. I love the sea and water, anyway.

    Snorkeling = Fun!

    I've personally taken snorkel trips to Oahu, Catalina, and Key Largo. Each time we saw the amazing beauty of the sea in all it's glory. There really is nothing quite like it. If you get a chance to snorkel on Catalina, go to Lovers' Cove, and if you're on Oahu, Kuilima...

    In The Water

    I floated there in the water, watching the fish below. Darting in and out of the reef, they floated magically-- like the UFOs you see in fuzzy camcorder videos, seeming to defy the laws of physics.  But this was close up, almost close enough to touch.  Reach out for them and...

    One Shell

    We landed in Cozumel two summers ago my wife and three other couples. We rented a lovely two story condo for five days it was totally awesome, private pool fenced and secure maybe six miles out of town. The weather was great and we had beach front access. We toured around in a VW...
