While you may be eager to pack your bags and plan a South Padre Island snorkeling trip, you may have a few safety concerns, especially if you or a child can’t swim.
No need to stress! Breakaway Cruises has a guide for snorkelers to make sure they feel safe and have fun.
- Understand and Trust Your Snorkel Gear – If you’re new to snorkeling, it’s important to become acquainted with the mask, mouthpiece, and fins. Breakaway Cruises offers only top-quality equipment, so don’t panic if you feel nervous. Remember, our highly-skilled crew is here to answer any questions you may have!
- Stay With Your Snorkel Buddies – One of the most critical things to remember when going into any body of water is to stay close to a buddy or group. Snorkeling is a great activity but losing your way can be frightening. Be sure to keep track of your friends and family!
- What if I Can’t Swim? – Maybe you have a child who can’t swim or you can’t yourself — don’t let this discourage you! In addition to staying with a buddy, bring some form-fitting personal floatation devices. That way, you can still have a great time without the worry of going underwater.
Keep these tips in mind and your snorkeling journey will be nothing but laughs, gasps of astonishment, and making memories
