Take it all in down by the seashore as you float and dive at your leisure. Snorkeling can be as strenuous or relaxing as you wish, depending on your style. One of the most beautiful things about snorkeling is being able to keep air in your lungs and therefore stay buoyant. Let the gentle waves massage you as you gaze down into the deep. After a while, though, you may become quite interested in seeing what's down just a bit further. You can see something, but what is it? Only you will know for sure. So go ahead and take that dive. Or... continue to float the surface. Choices, choices, choices.
