    First Time Snorkel?

    My girlfriend really wants to snorkel while we're in Aruba. But, she has never done it before. Would they show her how/let her do it on a "sail and snorkel" excursion? I'm thinking probably not.

    Aruba was my first time snorkeling back in 1998(?). We went on the Jolly Pirates and had a great time. I would recommend a catamaran though -easier to get one and off. I snorkel all the time and I can't even swim!!

    My swimming pool with a 7/7 or in my boat with a fishing rod looking in at Malmok.

    Thumbs up

    I have a family member who got the first lessons in the pool at Aqua Windies and then they too him on a private snorkel trip in the ocean after that.
    More expensive but definitely the best way to start if she is a little intimidated by it.

    If she is a good swimmer and not at all afraid of the water I would say go nice and easily from the shore yourself in 3 feets of water. Baby beach is a great place for a beginner.

    Thanks, guys. I'm glad to know that. Would it be ok to wait until we get on the island to book the excursion or should I do it now? We leave in about a week.

    I know they do on the Jolly Pirates...i was on there in January and they had I think it was a half hour long instruction on the way to the first snorkel spot...I heard from some that were listening in, it was pretty good and very informative
