Have you ever wanted to be more comfortable using a mask, fins, and snorkel? Would you like to be more comfortable and have more fun on your next vacation? If you’ve experienced snorkeling before and found the experience overwhelming or you want to be prepared to get the most out of an upcoming trip, then the Snorkeling Program is right for you. Our program takes care of all the worry. We provide all the gear to avoid large start-up costs though we do recommend learning in your own gear. This will increase your fun and safety and allow you to continue on with equipment you can trust on your trip or on local boats and beaches. We have convenient times available for you to pick from. Just call us at the shop or send us an email and we will be happy to set up your Snorkeling session right away.
