What’s the difference between snorkeling and freediving?

Although freediving and snorkeling are very similar, there are some differences between these two activities. Snorkeling is the act of floating on the surface while using a mask or swimming goggles to see underwater and having a snorkel to breathe while keeping one’s face submerged.

Freediving allows you to dive deep under the water, interact with the environment, and not just stare at it from the surface. With freediving, you will learn advanced breathing techniques, and you will learn to move efficiently underwater through the use of swimming techniques and efficient equipment (wetsuit and fins only).
