Global Snorkeling Equipment Market 2016-2020

About Snorkeling Equipment

Snorkeling is a water-based activity like scuba diving, where snorkelers experience the marine environment using different approaches, equipment, and techniques. Unlike scuba diving, snorkeling requires less equipment and training; it basically only requires a mask to clearly view the underwater world, a snorkel to breathe on the water surface, and fins to enable propulsion. Snorkelers mainly swim on the water's surface facedown and discover the marine world under the surface.
