Whether you are in the UK or have travelled further afield snorkelling can be great fun for all the family. The only skill that you need is to be able to swim and even then you can snorkel in shallow water if you are not a strong swimmer.
Some of the best places to go snorkelling are places where the sea is warmer so there are lots of fish and other sea creatures to spot amongst the rocks and seaweed. Places like any of the Greek islands or around turkey are great as the variety of creatures you see is quite vast and you may even spot a sea turtle!
At most holiday destinations they offer guided snorkelling trips which are great as the will know where to go to get the best snorkelling experience. They also sometimes do boat trips out where they will stop at an area of water that is idea for seeing turtles or more exotic looking fish.
These trips are usually much cheaper than scuba diving as well as safer and can be done by all the family.
