Snorkelling is great fun, easy to learn and an ideal way to build up confidence in the water. It is accessible to anyone - young or old - and is an enjoyable way to get the whole family involved.
For younger members of the family, snorkelling is also a great introduction to underwater sports and can be their first step towards learning to dive.
BSAC’s snorkelling courses are open to children and adults alike – starting with our Snorkel Diver course (or Dolphin Snorkeller for young children) and progressing to Snorkel Dive Manager or Snorkel Instructor.
You can complete a BSAC snorkel course before you go on holiday or you can learn to snorkel to discover the amazing underwater sights our very own coastline has to offer.
A good source for this information is the BSAC publication "Snorkelling For All", which covers all these topics in detail (available from the BSAC Shop)
