Snorkeling is just like swimming, but with fins, a mask, and a tube called a snorkel for breathing underwater. It's easy and fun and you can do it in an ocean, lake, or even at your neighborhood pool. Snorkeling is also a great starting point if you want to get involved in scuba diving. It teaches you the basics of breathing and exploring underwater, but it doesn't have an age limit or require expensive equipment like scuba diving. So strap on your fins and dive in!
