    Taught by Tamara Smith

    Whether you're off to warm exotic places, exploring our Oregon Coastal waters or just playing in nearby lakes, snorkeling can be a fantastic adventure! Learning to snorkel or simply brushing up on your snorkeling skills, is often easier than learning how to swim. Snorkeling incorporates three pieces of equipment: a mask, snorkel, and set of fins.

    Becoming comfortable wearing your mask and learning to: breathe through your snorkel, clear your snorkel, and effectively use your fins are all skills that most beginning swimmers can learn in just one or two lessons.

    You will learn how to:

    • Adjust, clear, and de-fog your mask.
    • Breathe through and clear your snorkel.
    • Use your fins
    • Surface dive and clear your snorkel upon returning to the surface.
    • Enter the water from the side rail of a boat; or, how to enter the ocean with fins on from the beach.
    • Extricate yourself from an ocean current; and, avoid damaging coral reefs or coming into contact with venomous sea animals.

    Gear:

    Plan to bring your own snorkeling equipment if possible. This way we can make all proper adjustments before your trip & make sure you're comfortable with your gear. We have a limited amount of gear to loan if needed.
