Snorkel Vacations FAQ


Frequently Asked (very good) Questions:

Why not just join a SCUBA diving live-aboard as a snorkeler? There are several reasons why this isn’t a good idea for a snorkeler. To no ones fault and understandably so, sites are chosen with SCUBA divers in mind and tend to be deeper, or with strong current, or wavy. And if the reef is further away from the dive site the boat may have to bring snorkelers back on the boat for safety reasons while they follow the divers. And, of course, now that there is a live-aboard boat dedicated for snorkelers, this question becomes a bit moot :-).
