Go ahead and jump into clear and warm Caribbean waters for your first Snorkeling experience

Ducking your head in the incredibly clear Caribbean warm waters just off about any island can dazzle you with sights beyond compare. Friendly bright yellow fish darting between flame-colored coral, the untouched seabed and the fragile sea anemones are dancing in the current. Just part of the wonders that can be found under the waves.

If you can swim you can snorkel.

All you really need for snorkeling gear are a mask, snorkel and fins. No need to carry all your snorkeling gear with you, we have it all onboard your affordable catamaran sailing yacht SV Sunsational.

With all that’s out there to be explored, it’s no wonder that the Caribbean is home to many of the world’s most popular snorkeling and scuba diving destinations.

The most important thing for you to remember is that snorkeling and scuba diving are two very different activities.

One of the most fundamental differences between snorkeling and scuba diving is your location in the water. Snorkelers float on the water’s surface and breathe through a snorkel, while divers challenge the ocean’s depths with air tanks strapped to their backs.

Snorkelers and divers can actually visit and enjoy many of the same spots, but certain locations are not suitable for both activities.

To get closer to anything you see, just hold your breath and kick without touching the living corals. When Snorkeling it’s easiest to stay safe by swimming with your arms at your sides.

Coral reefs are just one kind of the amazing sites available under the Caribbean Sea. By Snorkeling one can visit old shipwrecks and underwater formations.  In addition, Snorkeling is an activity for the whole family to enjoy. Depending on the ages of the children Snorkeling can be interesting for all ages.

Many of the most popular sites to reach in The Bahamas for both snorkeling and diving can only be accessed by our affordable catamaran sailing yacht, SV Sunsational.  In many cases you’ll find colorful fish, rays, and anemones close to land.

Dear VISA: I'm off to the Caribbean!

Some credit card companies recommend that you notify them of any impending trip so that they don't become suspicious when the card is used numerous times in an unusual destination and block your charges. Even if you don't call your credit card company in advance, you can always call the card's toll-free emergency number if a charge is refused—a good reason to carry the phone number with you. But perhaps the most important lesson here is to carry more than one card with you on your trip; a card might not work for any number of reasons, so having a backup is the smart way to go.
