The beauty and richness of the sea in Indonesia make Indonesia a country with a lot of marine tourism destinations. Starting from beautiful, exotic, and natural beaches, and also very clear and clean seawater, as well as the rich variety of marine biota in Indonesia. Indonesia has several areas that are the main destinations for foreign tourists and domestic tourists, namely the island of Bali. Bali has many marine tourism destinations such as diving, snorkeling, and also various water sports which are supported by many facilities and professional service providers such as Nusa Penida Bali Tour and various professional holiday service providers in various tourism fields that are internationally renowned.
Snorkeling is a fun recreational activity. Diving in seawater and being able to witness the beauty of marine life is one of the tourist vacation destinations. In addition, snorkeling does not have special requirements such as diving which requires a certificate as a diver.
For tourists who want to enjoy the beauty of the sea, even though they do not have a diver’s certificate and are also not good at swimming, it is highly recommended to choose snorkeling tours. Still, for tourists who are used to snorkeling compared to those who are just the first or rarely do snorkeling, they need a variety of different preparations, here are important snorkeling tips for beginners to help you enjoy the beauty of the sea and the comfort when snorkeling
Use of Float
As a beginner, especially those who are not very good at swimming, using a buoy should be your choice. The buoy used is usually in the form of a vest.
Using a life vest must also be considered and chosen correctly, for example, you need to use a comfortable life vest and a body shape. If you use a small life vest, you will find it difficult to maneuver or move in the water, and can also cause difficulty breathing due to suffocation, and when the life vest is too large it can cause the life vest to come off or interfere with your movement while snorkeling.
Practice Using Snorkeling Equipment
Three tools are required to be used when snorkeling, namely, a diving mask, fins, and most important thing is a snorkel. Diving masks are used to protect the eyes and nose, so you can still see marine life safely. Well, because the nose is also covered by a diving mask, when doing snorkeling, you have to get used to breathing using your mouth.
Breathing using your mouth while snorkeling is not just breathing air from the sea surface, but using a snorkel. This tool consists of two parts, namely a hose that has a length of about 30 centimeters and a mouthpiece that is usually made of silicone. The mouthpiece of the snorkel must fit snugly in the mouth so that no seawater enters while breathing oxygen.
Snorkeling With Experienced Friends
If you are a beginner and have never snorkeled, it is not recommended to do it yourself. You can invite experienced friends or relatives, or professional service providers. Like when you are on vacation and choose marine tourism such as snorkeling in Bali which has a lot of marine tourism options, supported by various professional services such as Nusa Penida Manta Snorkeling Trip can be your main choice.
When it is the first time doing an activity, anxiety, panic, and fear will indeed come to interfere. You must be able to regulate and control your emotions so that there are no dangerous side effects, such as muscle cramps that can occur when panicking.
The last tip that needs to be considered, a lot happens to tourists who enjoy the beauty of the sea, namely often the coral reefs that are guarded are damaged because they are stepped on or even deliberately taken because of their beauty. Damage to coral reefs is a big loss to the beauty and ecosystem of marine life, therefore you must participate in maintaining and preserving the beauty of the sea when snorkeling so that more people will be able to enjoy the beauty and preservation of the sea.
