Snorkeler Makes Fossil Find!

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010
We are always amazed at the things we come across when snorkeling. Keeping your eyes open, you never know what you’ll find.
Just ask Christian Hall, a Georgia youth snorkeling off his grandfather’s dock on Oneida Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.
While freshwater snorkeling in a few feet of crystal clear water, he discovered a fossilized tooth. It turns out that it’s likely a fossilized horse tooth from more than 10,000 years ago.
This kind of fossil find is rare in upstate New York, which just goes to show, you’ll never know what you’ll see when you’re snorkeling.

Snorkeling in Cape Cod

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Just back from an end-of-the-summer vacation that included a trip to Cape Cod. It was our first visit to the Cape, and we took this opportunity to enjoy some snorkeling. We know what you’re thinking – snorkeling on Cape Cod?

While the calm waters of Cape Cod Bay make for easy snorkeling, the visibility isn’t great, and there’s not much to see. But do you know about the Kettle Ponds? Sure, it’s not the Caribbean, but we’ll take what we can get. We were pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had and how much we could see in these crystal clear freshwater ponds on Cape Cod. If we had brought a camera, we’d show you pictures!

Snorkeling With the Salmon in British Columbia

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Here is a great story about  freshwater snorkeling with Spawning Salmon in British Columbia. Head to the Campbell River, throw on a wet suite and float 6 miles – above thousands of colorful Salmon who have come upstream from the Ocean to spawn (and then to die).

Sounds like an incredible experience – check out the entire article here.
