How To Snorkel-3
Feb 22, 2017

Swimming with a Snorkel

1.Use fins on your feet. Wearing fins will amplify your movements and let you move forward quickly without a lot of disruptive splashing.

2.Hold your arms at your sides to reduce drag and extend your legs so that the fins are pointed behind you. Keep your legs fairly close together.

3.With your knees slightly bent, kick slowly and powerfully with the fins. Keep your fin stroke movements smooth and relaxed. Try to move from the hip to make use of your thigh muscles and avoid kicking with your knees, as this will only waste your energy.

4.Kick farther down and less upwards whilst arching your back upward. The right snorkeling technique to power yourself forward with the downward strokes.

5.Keep your fins below the water when kicking. Try to avoid splashing, as this will scare off the fish and can be annoying to other swimmers around you.

6.Float with the waves. Snorkeling is best done on gentle waters, but even there you should learn to adjust your movements to the up and down surging of the waves.

7.Swim at a steady comfortable pace to conserve your energy. Snorkeling is not a race, and a good session can last for hours.
