Discover Snorkel

Snorkeling is the use of mask fins and snorkel to primarily swim on the surface while being able to keep your face in the water without having to lift your head to breathe. Periodically you may dive below the surface for a short period of time to exam something closer.

Ages 4 and up are welcome. We do have a minimum class requirement of 2 for this class. Anyone under the age of 18 requires a parental consent form be filled out prior to class. All you need for this class is a swimming suit and a towel.

Please download and fill out your medical and liability forms as soon as possible and bring them with you to class.
