The Importance Of Having Quality Snorkel Equipment
The Importance of Having Quality Snorkel Equipment
Snorkeling is a fun activity to enjoy while on your Hawaii vacation. Anyone in good physical condition who can swim can learn to snorkel. Since you will be out on open water, it is important to pay attention to important snorkeling safety tips and reminders. Another important safety tip to remember is to have quality snorkel equipment and learning the proper way to use them.
Make sure you buy good products from trusted manufacturers and look for well-made snorkel gear. Defective items may break while you're in the water so it's best to ensure you have proper equipment that you can trust.
Lastly, it's also important to protect your skin against sun rays when snorkeling. Sunburn could be not only painful but also dangerous. Instead of applying sunblock that contains chemicals and can harm marine life, consider wearing a UV protective rash guard. A high elasticity swimming shirt or suit provides 50+ UV protection as well as protection against jellyfish. There are different type of rash guards from different manufacturers (short and long sleeve shirts, trousers and full suits or there are specific stinger suits). When using sunscreen, make sure it is a coral reef safe sunscreen.
