Enjoying Snorkeling During Your Dominican Vacation
 
The Caribbean is home to some of the best snorkeling in the Americas, and those that are taking a Dominican Republic adult
vaction will have many options to choose from. If you are visiting the DR, and have never tried snorkeling before, it is an activity
you should consider, if you know how to swim of course. The only thing better than snorkeling by yourself during an Dominican
Republic vacations adult is enjoying it with a lovely Dominican lady. If you plan to do some snorkeling during your stay in the
DR, it is important to make sure you plan in advance.

Some tourists choose to bring their own gear, while others will opt to rent the gear from local services that offer snorkeling supplies
to tourists. If you plan to rent your equipment, be sure to research the provider to make sure they're credible. If you've never
snorkeled before, and would like to try it for the first time, be sure to get lessons from a qualified instructor "before" trying this
activity. While snorkeling can be a fun and rewarding activity for those who are experienced; it can also be unrewarding and
even dangerous for those who are not. If you plan to have a beautiful local lady accompany you during your snorkeling
activity, be sure she is comfortable with it, knows how to swim, and can handle her equipment.

Best Places in the DR for Snorkeling

Because the DR is an island nation, there are many choices available for snorkeling. Snorkeling will generally be available at the
resorts, as well as at any location that features scuba diving. This will generally include beach towns such as Puerto Plata, Boca
Chica, Cabarete, and Punta Cana. For those of you reading this who have never gone snorkeling before, it is important to note
that there is a difference between "snorkeling" and "scuba diving." The two terms are not the same. Snorkeling is much simpler
than scuba diving, and requires less sophisticated equipment. It allows you to see underwater life in a setting that is natural,
and it does not require the level of training that is necessary to be a scuba diver.

Snorkeling will almost always take place in shallow water. Some of the equipment you will need is a wet suit, a diving mask, a
tube called a snorkel, and swimfins. This equipment will allow you to stay underwater for extended periods of time with little
difficulty. If you are interested in becoming a scuba diver, it may be a wise idea to start out with snorkeling first in order to
familiarize yourself with the basic rules. The waters off the coast of the Dominican Republic are teeming with marine life
that snorkelers will enjoy.
