You can also buy adult full face snorkel equipment at a reasonable price and keep it for as long as you wish, without additional charges. You can rent equipment until your children are fully grown, then you can purchase new equipment that will last forever.
Many vacation spots offer snorkeling, and you can snorkel in shallow waters. I refer to water that is shallow enough for children to swim in. Mexico, Hawaii, and the Caribbean all offer excellent snorkeling in shallow water. It is safe enough for even the youngest members of your family to enjoy. Although good snorkel spots tend to have calm waters, it is important to keep an eye on your children and practice water safety. It is safe to snorkel in shallow water.
Start your day right by having a light breakfast, and then hitting the beach before the crowds arrive. You can find a sunny spot so that you can get warm after you have gotten out of the water. For later in the day, keep the umbrella nearby. Before you go into the water, make sure to check with the lifeguard about the conditions. Before you rent snorkel equipment, make sure it is in good condition. Before you dive into the water, give your children a refresher course in snorkeling.
Many snorkel parks offer restaurants, gift shops, rest rooms, and everything else that a family could need. The gift shop will usually sell a water-proof identification card for local fish species. This will make snorkeling more enjoyable. You can either mark the species you see or compete to see who can spot the most sea creatures. This can be fun and educational.
There are usually disposable underwater cameras that can be used for one purpose. This is a great gift idea for kids. The kids will spend hours trying to capture the one turtle or fish they see. These photos can make interesting additions to your scrapbook and be quite beautiful. You might be surprised at what you see!
One family member should be the timekeeper, and notify everyone when it’s time for lunch. Snorkeling is so fun that it can fly by. After lunch, take a break and enjoy some time on dry ground before continuing your family’s water adventure.
