Snorkeling through the Freezing Water of the Artic- shattering world records and raising awareness for Global Warming.

June 5th, 2014

There’s some pretty extreme ways that you can snorkel. While we usually prefer tropical sun and cute

fish, Susan R. Eaton and her group are preparing for a 3000km relay through the once-frozen Antartic

Penisula. In an effort to improve public knowledge of the “global melt now underway” this women-only

group plans to shatter a world record over the course of its 100 day expedition.

“It’s not just a world record” Eaton is quick to note “It’s not just about climate change. It’s about

connecting with people of the North and hearing their stories about climate change, ocean change and

how it’s impacting them today.”

Far from the freezing North, we’ll follow the story from here.

Bog Snorkeling? Yes – Bog Snorkeling?

June 1st, 2014

What do you think of when you hear the word “snorkeling”? White sand beaches, coral reef and

colorful fish, right? Some competitive snorkelers in Wales, however, have found a rather unusual

venue for their pastime- a bog. Often racing in humorous costumes (sumo snorkel, anyone?) these

competitors are carving out a unique niche for themselves.

Galapagos!

We’ve snorkeled all around the world in some pretty amazing spots, but this one might take the cake.

Following the rules

January 23rd, 2012

Most serious snorkelers know the basic rules of snorkeling – with regard to safety as well as conservation.

In the case of the former, read it, learn it, live it. In the case of the latter, intelligent conservation is the key.

Good snorkeling practices are good for everyone.

Waterproof

January 18th, 2012

Steve Miller once proclaimed “everything’s better when wet,” (see “Jungle Love”), and, as snorkeling enthusiasts, we’d have to agree. Except when it comes to computers.

Now, due in no doubt to the overwhelming demand (what’s the text format for sarcasm?) for a tablet you can take underwater, we’ve got this.

Another Virgin Islands Destination

January 13th, 2012

Usually when we go to the Virgin Islands, St. John is our first choice as a snorkeling destination. But reading this makes us wonder if we’ve been giving St. Croix short shrift.

We’ve snorkeled St. Croix before, of course, but it’s been a while. Maybe it’s time to go back!

Snorkel Bob Rages Against the Machine

January 8th, 2012

We all love reef fish. But most prefer to see them in the ocean, not in a fish tank. But a big retailer has another take on things, and that’s got Snorkel Bob hot under the collar, so the speak.

The President Goes Snorkeling

December 28th, 2011

We’ve always loved snorkeling in Hawaii – who doesn’t?

Certainly President Obama appreciates the natural beauty of his birth-state. We can’t think of a better place for a family vacation right now.
