Snorkeling Classes

This entry-level program is designed to educate snorkelers on the skills and knowledge to safely observe underwater attractions from or near the surface of the water.

Imagine floating on a clear sea of liquid watching fishes, crustaceans, corals – everything from dolphins to dugongs face-to-face.  If this sounds like something you would love to do, then the SDI/NAUI Skin Diver or Junior Skin Diver course is for you!

Snorkeling (also known as “skin diving”) is a fun activity for people of all ages. We have several options available based on your level of comfort and interest:

Student Provides

Bring yourself, swim suit and towel!


In either case, you will need to provide your own transportation, equipment (yours and/or rented), environmental suit and accommodations. Rental equipment is available through Diver’s World. Many of our local dives are within a couple of hours drive (or right here in our own Lake Erie or Presque Isle Bay) and classmates frequently arrange for travel together.
