Rota Snorkeling Advice

Purple Button Observe ocean conditions for a while before entering the water.
Purple Button Do not over estimate your watermanship skills
Purple Button Make a plan before entering the water including alternate exits
Purple Button Make sure you drink plenty of water before your snorkeling trip. The sun and saltwater can dehydrate a person very quickly.
Purple Button Wear a t-shirt, rash guard or thin wetsuit for sun protection, stinging things in the water and contact with the reef.
Purple Button Boats - If you see or hear a boat while snorkeling, locate the boat and wave to it or hold a fin or your arm up in the air above     your head if it gets close or you think it might get close. Hopefully this will alert the boat operator to your presence in the water     and they can avoid coming close to you and not run over you.
