Snorkel for Beginners

Discover the magical world that lies just under the surface!
A helping hand for your first strokes underwater – our snorkel introduction sessions for beginners will walk you through everything you need to know to snorkel safely and comfortably and give you a chance to try out various types of snorkel equipment. Once you’re set up you can go for a trial snorkel session in calm, shallow seas, with an experienced guide by your side.

The activity is weather dependent.

Overview

Discover the hidden undersea world, for beginners and inexperienced snorkellers. An accessible session to introduce you to snorkelling safely and comfortably.
Snorkelling time: 30 – 45 minutes

  • Total time: 3 hours
  • Swimming distance: 200m
  • Difficulty: for all ability levels.

NB: This is not a swimming lesson. You need to be comfortable with swimming basic strokes (e.g. breaststroke) for short amounts of time and floating in shallow water.

We will meet in Kissamos, and drive to a nearby beach. Depending on the weather conditions, we will pick the location that will give us the calmest conditions to learn in. It could be a small pebbly bay, or a shallow sandy beach.

We’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll talk you through all the equipment we have, and show you how to get set up, either using your own equipment or ours. We’ll take you through the basics of breathing with the snorkel, how to deal with leaks or mask fogging, safety when swimming, how to choose water entry and exit points and give you a brief introduction to sealife you might encounter!

Once you’re feeling confident and we’re all set up, into the water we go! You will be able to experience the thrill of seeing and breathing underwater, at your own pace. There’s no set distance to cover, we’ll stay as close to the shore as you are happy with. You have free time to explore and practice your new skill. Your guide is with you at all times for any questions or help.
