Snorkeling requires much less equipment; a mask that allows you to see the wonders of the underwater world, and a snorkeling breathing tube, typically 16 inches long, that allows you to submerge your face in the water while still being able to access the air above. Some snorkelers may want to use foot fins as well to move faster and with less effort on the surface.
As the sun began to set, I suddenly realized that most of the light would go with it. Before my visit, I’d imagined T.I. would simulate the long days by the equator. Instead, because most of the dome is opaque, it’s darker inside T.I. on a sunny day than outside the dome, and when the sun goes down IRL, it also goes down inside the cavernous air hanger. But first, a faux sunset—courtesy of magenta and orange stage lights—that made the rock grotto lagoon pool look ripe for a Bachelorette taping.

There's graffiti on the walls, there's a lot of litter and random clothes just laying around, homeless people sleeping around, couples intensely making out who need to get a room, and it people walking by will smell like weed. It was nothing too bothersome, but just a warning if you're trying to go to  a nice, secluded and romantic beach, DON'T come here.

Captain Hook’s offers diving and snorkeling trips in the Keys at both of our store locations in Big Pine Key and Marathon. We work everyday to make ourselves the best dive and snorkel operator in the Keys.  Our professional staff stands ready to show you the fascinating marine life and environment of the Keys.  Here are some of the things we do that are different from other dive operators.
The greatest danger of snorkeling is that snorkelers are hard to spot in the water by jet skis and leisure crafts, since a diver is often submerged under water with only a tube sticking out of the water. Contact with poisonous coral, dehydration and hyperventilation are other health hazards. Sun burn is also common as the back is exposed to the sun when spending long hours snorkeling.
As popularity of bikinis grew, the acceptability of pubic hair diminished.[245] But, with certain styles of women's swimwear, pubic hair may become visible around the crotch area of a swimsuit.[244] With the reduction in the size of swimsuits, especially since the advent of the bikini after 1945, the practice of bikini waxing has also become popular.[244] The Brazilian style which became popular with the rise of thong bottoms.[246]
If you’re a newbie snorkeler, do not attempt to snorkel in a place that has a strong current. Instead, choose a place that has calm waters. Waves aren’t the best thing when snorkeling, specially when its your first time. It increases the effort you have to put in to get from one point to another. We suggest also going for a beach instead of jumping out of a boat as you can gradually swim towards a depth you are comfortable with.

The beach has a lot of people around, but it doesn't feel too crowded once you're having fun. Parking can be a challenge, but once you find one you won the jackpot cause it's free. There's a large life guard tower close to the pier. We got to see them do a practice drill that day. You can hear airplanes flying over from time to time. You can see the sail boats in the distance which is nice. Lots of families there on my visit. There's a dog park along the beach more towards the hotel. People were nice and every one was friendly on our visit. No one bothered us and we were able to just relax. We got to also see people practicing their surfing skills. I plan to go back when I'm in that part of town again.


This temperate Dutch island is beloved by divers for good reason. It lies outside the hurricane belt, and it was the first Caribbean island to designate its coasts and reefs a marine park sanctuary. Together, these protections have preserved the surrounding corals, resulting in reefs that remain the most colorful in the region. Moreover, of Bonaire’s 89 dive sites, 63 are reachable from shore. The sites on the northern half of the island are preferable for snorkelers, as there are fewer surges, and the reef plateau starts between 2 and 10 feet deep. Top snorkel sites include Andrea I, Witch’s Hut and 1,000 steps — so named for the staircase to the water. Fear not: It’s really just 78 steps, but the name keeps the crowds away.

Palau, a nation of 250 islands in the western Pacific, is home to dozens of unusual seawater marine lakes connected to the ocean by tunnels and channels. Only one, Jellyfish Lake on Eil Malk, can be visited, and is filled with millions of—you guessed it—jellyfish. Floating through swarms of these gelatinous beings is definitely an out-of-body experience, but don't worry—their non-poisonous stings can hardly be felt.


It's no surprise that the Maldives tops your list of best islands to snorkel. A chain of 26 atolls and over 1,000 islands in the Indian Ocean, it's the world's most geographically dispersed of countries, and can't be beat for underwater exploration. Seeing as each island is barely the size of a small estate in the Hamptons, we're hard-pressed to pick a top spot, but consider the Anantara Kihava Villas Maldives your first stop.
