Easy to Follow Tips on Snorkeling In The Maldives
Surrounded by calm and crystal clear sea waters, the islands of the Maldives make for an ideal destination for those looking to spend their holiday snorkeling. A relatively cheap way of experiencing the spectacular marine ecosystem that lies along the ocean floor, snorkeling is a safe and fun outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Since the Maldives is home to a diverse reef system, snorkeling is the ideal way in which to take in its colorful corals and the varied marine life that have found a home here such as Angelfish, Parrotfish, Butterflyfish, Sweetlips and the Wahoo.
While learning to snorkel is relatively easy and hassle free, there are a few basic tips one can follow which will help to make a snorkeling excursion a memorable one.
First one needs to get the right equipment which basically consists of a mask, fins and a snorkel. If you do not have your own, they can either be bought or rented out. It is important that the mask should fit snugly on your face, even without the need of tightening the head strap. One should also check the fins and ensure that they afford both comfort and flexibility for your feet. Since faulty or ill fitting equipment can ruin your snorkeling adventure, always double check your equipment before setting out.
Another tip for those wanting to go snorkeling in the Maldives is to plan ahead and come prepared. This includes finding out information and the locations of the best areas for snorkeling as well as knowing what the weather and tidal current patterns are for the area at the time you plan to visit.
Last but not least, generously apply a sunscreen brand that is also waterproof and always try to snorkel with family and friends or even with an instructor because you never know when you might need a helping hand or two!
