Snorkelling tips for beginners for Maldives Resorts


Hi this my name is Mady and I am working at Kurumba
Maldives as a snorkelling instructor. So Maldives is really popular for sandy beaches, palm
trees and of course the blue waters. And all year around the water is above 26 degrees
and very warm. Today I am going to give you few cool tips how to do snorkelling in the
Maldives. Ok, right now we are here at the pool, so
before we head out to the lagoon we will give a practice on how to use the snorkelling equipment. Ok let�s talk about the snorkelling equipment
first. Here we have a mask and a snorkel. It should be perfectly fitting to your face.
And always make sure that you are taking your hair off from the mask area before you wear
it. And then we have fins. If you are not a great swimmer or if you are not really comfortable
in water its always advisable and recommended to use a life jacket, especially on the reef.
Alright, let�s begin. While you are snorkelling there is a possibility
that you can get some water into your snorkel. In order to clear it out all you have to do
is just to blow some air into your snorkel. And also when you are snorkelling that is
a possibility that you can get some water into your mask. All you have to do is just
press your mask against your face sand then blow out thought your nose. Whole snorkelling
breathing is the easiest part. Just breathe in and out slowly, gently and then take your
time. While you are snorkelling duck diving is important just to clear some waves all
you have to do is put your head down and kick out and when you reach the service again just
blow out through your snorkel and it will clear all the water inside your snorkel. While
underwater you might feel some pleasure in your ears. All you have to do is pinch your
nose slightly and blow out/ it will equalize the pressure and it will make your more comfortable
in the water. Ok we are done with our practices, so we will
be heading to the beach with some of our guests for an actual snorkelling experience. Before we head our there are some safety general
rules that you have to follow on. Always you have to snorkel in pairs. And if you are not
a strong swimmer or if you are not comfortable then wear a life jacket. Be really careful
with the currents and the directions of the current. And keep away from the boats if there
is any, and of course you have to wear some really good sunscreen before you head out. And let�s look at key points to make your
snorkelling more enjoyable. Plan your snorkel entry and exit points, current
directions. Water sports centres in your resorts will provide you with this information. Check
the conditions. It is not advisable to go our snorkelling in stormy conditions or late
in the evening. Make sure you move slowly and gently, do not overstrain yourself. Really
simple, guys, breath in an out, keep horizontal, float, stay close together. Kicking nice and
gently go with the current. Finally, when you in the water please do not touch corals
or marine life. Corals are very sensitive and very slowly growing, and one kick or touch
can destroy many years of growth. Use the marked snorkelling channels to keep well clear
of growing corals. Never feed marine life, they can become depended and aggressive around
humans. Thank you for joining us. If you are coming
to Kurumba or any Maldives island for that matter, we strongly recommend you take a snorkelling
lesson, follow the good safe snorkelling practices and of course remember to protect our environment. Please like the video and and subscribe to
