Most children who enjoy swimming love to go snorkeling and skin diving. Kids get tremendously excited when they see a fish, a turtle, a crab, or just about any marine creature. To them, diving represents a tremendous adventure that they can participate in, and this is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy.

Of course, as in any water-based activity, you must take certain common sense precautions with children. They must be able to swim, and be comfortable swimming in a pool before you should ever consider taking them into open water. They should understand that they must follow your directions explicitly at all times while in the water.
