Why I Enjoy Snorkeling After Catching Some Waves

After I chase and jump off with some waves, the next thing I do is look for the calmer part of the beach and take my snorkel and fins. The chaos of the waves makes me take my best snorkel gear and head for some serene places underwater. There are reasons for doing that, and mostly because I want calmer activities after the ranging waves get the better of me.

Top Reasons Why I Love Snorkeling

The calming effect of snorkeling is just one of the many reasons why I do it. Although it’s the one that stands out of my list, there are a few others. I’m listing them down below. How about you? Do you have reasons for loving snorkeling? Why not join me as we explore my reasons for loving this sport?

  1. It’s cheap—I’m one of the more practical people who walk this earth and how much I would spend on something is important to me. With snorkeling, although there are more expensive gear out there, you can just start with shoe string budget. As you go along, you can slowly change your gear to more expensive ones and enjoy the better features that it has.
  2. It’s safe—Contrary to popular belief, snorkeling is a safe sport. Due to the kind of gear that you’re using, you’re actually limited to the depths that you can go to. Unlike scuba that allows you to go to the deeper parts, snorkeling is limited to your lung capacity. Of course, you should take safety precautions and never dive without a buddy, but other than that, it is really safe.
  3. It’s fun and relaxing—Do I need to elaborate further? Of course, snorkeling is pure fun. The life underwater just never ceases to amaze me. Have you seen Finding Nemo? Well, it’s way better than that in reality.
  4. You always find something new—Even with my years of snorkeling experience, there is always something new that I find every time I dive. The life underwater is just so dynamic, you won’t know what you will find on your next dive. There’s just too many things out there. A new fish, a new coral formation, you name it. If you want adventure, snorkeling is the way to go.
  5. It’s good for you—Swimming is a good cardio exercise and when snorkeling, you’re just not aware that you’ve already swim a mile. The exercise part of snorkeling is not a struggle because it’s part of the fun itself. You’re not exercising for the sake of it, you’re exercising because it’s part of the activity that you love.

I know that there are hundreds of reason to love snorkeling and if you want to share your own, just post them in the comment below. To me, these are the ones that stand out and no matter what activities I will do, I will always go back to snorkeling. Come this weekend, I will head out to the beach and chase some waves again and after that, I will snorkel.
