What is Snorkeling?
Snorkeling is a common form of diving
on the surface or just below on the surface of the water. A snorkel
is a tube that allows the diver to breathe while floating at the water's
surface. One end fits in the divers mouth and the other end extends
above the water to get the air for breathing. You are provided with
a mask to see clearly in the water. Make sure to add this in your list
of activities when in Agatti.
A gentle and relaxing activity where
the only noise is the wind, the sails and the water lapping against
the hull. It can also be a fast active sport where a gust of wind will
catch the sail driving you forward with an acceleration which you would
not have expected.
