If you are not interested in SCUBA diving how about snorkelling? When you go on holiday in warm waters do you snorkel? Are you able to do it safely, do you understand the risks? Do you frighten away the marine life you wanted to see? Have you tried taking underwater photos of the marine life and not had any success? Are you able to identify potential hazards in or around your in water environment?
If you have never tried snorkelling before, then the best place to start is an Experience Snorkelling session with your local BSAC club. Experience Snorkelling is a fun trial session in the swimming pool, where your BSAC instructor will introduce you to the basic snorkelling kit and skills. Would you like to learn to recognise the way to keep yourself in safe situation, learn to fin correctly, correctly fit basic equipment, clear your mask without damaging the marine environment, enter and exit the water in a safe way? Dive to take underwater photos to a limited depth while breath holding?
