The biggest advantage of snorkeling is that it suits everyone, regardless of age, experience or ability to swim. I’ve only been snorkeling for the last seven years; I wish I’d discovered it sooner. Snorkeling is like strapping on magical glasses and seeing 3D movies of a most amazing show.
Full-face snorkeling masks have become very popular and are perfect for beginners (as well as experienced divers) who want a more complete view. On a recent trip through the Hawaiian islands – an absolute haven for colourful fish, manta rays, urchins, sharks, green sea turtles, whales, dolphins and coral reefs – I tried out the Cobra snorkel mask. This comfortable one-piece mask and snorkel with wide viewing window makes it so easy to breathe comfortably through your mouth or nose. The fabric headband makes it comfortable to wear and suitable for all kinds of head shapes.
