Never snorkeled before? Don't worry, we are here for you! Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort has the equipment for you, all you really need are a mask and a snorkel; fins are optional. Here are a few tips so you make the most of your excursion.
- MASK- Adjust the straps to fit your head comfortably. Make sure your hair is out of the way and put the mask onto your face. Inhale gently through your nose to seal the mask to your face.
- SNORKEL- Adjust the snorkel strap to fit correctly on the mask strap. Keep the snorkel upright while you swim face down in the water. Breathe normally through the snorkel.
- Fins- Adjust fin straps to fit your foot. It is easiest to put fins on just before entering water, they can be difficult to walk in! (If you must walk in fins, walking backwards is the easiest way)
It is important to remember that coral is very delicate and easily damage. Coral is also very sharp and can cut you. While snorkeling it is best to avoid coming in contact with coral, to protect the coral and yourself!
We hope to see you at the Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort soon!
