Issue #013 - February 3rd, 2012

So lets get started!!!


Snorkeling in Jamaica is such a fun activity, that allows you to observe vibrant underwater life in there natural settings, free from any equipment or the need for any type of certification.

All along the north coast of Jamaica you'll find caverns, trenches to walls and drop-offs to shallow reefs.

Dives in Jamaica must be guided and are restricted to depth of 30m. This is for your safety and enjoyment, so please observe this rule.

Of special interest to snorkeling in Jamaica is the Point in Montego Bay where there is a dive wall known for its dense corals, masses of coral canyons, caves and tunnels, marine life of fishes of different species, nurse sharks, barracuda and stingrays.

Snorkeling at night can be very rewarding since there are some creatures that only come out at night. So you'll need underwater lights for this expedition and there are some dive shops in Jamaica that offers such a expedition.

Remember even at night the water is still warm so you'll enjoy your dive.

Snorkeling in Jamaica is a year round activity, so start planning your trip to the jewel of the Caribbean now.

All About Snorkeling Gears


It is always nice to have your own snorkeling mask, because then it fits you well, does not leak, it is sealed on well and not dropping off your face.

But if you do not have your own then the resorts or the tour group you are going snorkeling with are usually well prepared.

Technology has even caught up with snorkeling mask now and have a dual tube system that allows for separate inhalation and exhalation passages.

Or there is the mask where you re-breath some of your previous breath which is trapped or remained within your tube.

Everything is now technology supported in making this fun activity as safe as possible and simply amazing.


An ill-fitting fin can cause blister on your toes, so make sure and wear one that fits you well.

Fins helps you to glide much faster and is such a beautiful sight when you see a diver just gliding by.

Wash snapper fillet, drain then place in marinade, spread mixture all over fish then cover and set aside in fridge overnight. Or if you are in a hurry let sit for at least one hour on your kitchen counter top.
