Maui Snorkeling Q&A
Do I need to know how to Swim to go Snorkeling?
Yes, to snorkel you must know how to swim. Even if you are in standing depth water, you might get in a current that takes you out of your depth. In the water you don’t weigh much, and even a tiny current can move you. So you must know how to swim well enough to be able to tread water and keep your head above water, and you must be able to make it through the water well enough to get yourself back to shore.
