In an ideal world, our mates would be available to hang out with us whenever we want. We’d spend our days in the sea, snorkelling and swimming, eating fish and chips, with no work or family obligations. Sounds dreamy, right? That’s cos that is a dream. In the real world, we can’t always count on having a buddy around to join us on our adventures. And when it comes to diving, we already know not to go alone. But does that same rule apply to snorkelling?
Many experienced snorkellers will find no problem with the idea of snorkelling alone, but experience doesn’t allow you to control the conditions around you. Things like currents, equipment failure, and so on, need to be taken into account. That doesn’t mean you have to sit at home alone if your mates are busy though! As long as you exercise certain precautions, and are aware of the dangers of snorkelling alone so that you’re prepared, then you can enjoy solo snorkelling safely.
First off: the risks
In an ideal world, there’d be no risks associated with anything fun, ever. But as we said, this world is far from ideal, and snorkelling along comes with its own risks which you should be aware of before you hit the water.
Now that we’ve got all the scary stuff out of the way, let’s talk about what you need to do in order to stop that stuff from happening. Of course, in an ideal world we could control all the events in our lives, but… You know what we’re gonna say. Take these safety precautions and enjoy a safe solo snorkel with peace of mind. Don’t worry about being ‘amateur’ with all this safety business – this is about potentially saving your life so man up.
That’s about it, really. The world may be far from ideal, and you may have to take the occasion snorkel alone. Luckily, snorkelling is just as fun without mates as it is with mates, and as long as you exercise the precautions above then you can enjoy a safe solo snorkel session. Your mates are gonna be so jealous they missed out.
“The mask include GOPRO mounts, so you can easily film and photograph underwater scenery! I highly recommend especially to people who have a fear of snorkeling! This mask is really easy to use and is safe!” said @lud.around. “I can’t wait for my next trip with my new mask!”
Loved the complete set. I even used the waterproof phone pouch to take photos and videos underwater. It made my Fiji experience so much better than using the free snorkel set that hurt your face after 2hours and leaving a sun/mask mark. The ninja leaves no marks and gives great vision under water in comparison. It did take some getting used to but it definitely paid off! Only frustration is that the tightening straps are quite basic; they should be much simpler to loosen and tighten both in and out of water.” – Jock
