COST: $55.00 – SNORKELING GEAR PROVIDED IF NEEDED
Get the most out of your tropical vacation by learning to snorkel! Snorkeling can be exhausting, and you’d be surprised at how a few simple skin diving techniques can help you cover more ground and stay safe. You’ll practice these techniques with a PADI Divemaster in our community pool, and get some experience using proper snorkeling equipment.
We offer these classes in a pool because water visibility is typically quite low on our local beaches due to effluence of sand and mud into Charleston harbor from our local rivers. Visibility clears up about 12 miles offshore, and snorkelers are welcome to join our weekly offshore charters during the summer, but most of our sites are 60 – 100 feet deep, which is generally too deep too see much from the surface. The BEST snorkeling is on our Rainbow River, trips during the winter, where the water is crystal clear and only about 5-10 feet deep. Check out some of our video of Rainbow River and Silver Springs here.
