I’m going to talk about snorkelling, which is quite popular nowadays but for some reasons, I haven’t had the chance to try. So you can do this sport pretty much everywhere provided that there’s a body of water, preferably a beach with some beautiful submarine landscape.
I’ve heard that the ideal place to go is Coron island where there’s gorgeous coral. If you can afford overseas travel, there’s plenty to choose from, like the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
The equipment required for this sport is quite simple. You just need a snorkel to help you breathe underwater. It is better to wear a mask to prevent water from coming into your eyes and fins to swim faster.
I think that there are only certain areas off a beach where you can safely dive. And also we should not get too far away from the shore or the boat. Anyway, I think I’ll try this sport sometime this summer when it gets too hot in the city.
