Snorkel From the Shore at the Beach


per person


Savvy, Smart and Sophisticated People Love to Snorkel and School Themselves

Snorkeling, the first step to underwater exploration and can be a very fun, exciting and an amazing experience with memories that can last a lifetime.

You will swim over the top of parrot fish, damsels, stripped majors, blue tangs, angels, snappers, groupers and many others too many to mention here. You will see so many fish it is hard to watch all of them at once.

You will visit Coral Reefs and Historical Shipwrecks off the coast of south Florida. Fort Lauderdale and Miami are known as the ship wreck capital of the world and we are the most dived and snorkeled area in North America.

Snorkeling Sounds Easy and it is If You are Trained Properly

Snorkeling sounds easy and it is if you are properly trained. If you can float without much effort you might do well and get lucky. Excellent swimmers can perform better, sometimes, trying it on their own, but not usually.

If you are new to Snorkeling or this is your first time ever, than my message here is especially for you.

During my experience teaching diving and snorkeling over the course of 14 years, I have talked to and consulted many people who try snorkeling without proper instruction. Many of them, their first time experience did not turn out well and they were embarrassed. This awkward moment could have been avoided by professional instruction by a licensed professional. Friends mean well but their instruction is clumsy at best. Snorkeling lessons are more effective with a Professional Snorkeling Instructor.

Please take note of the following statement. If you skimp on paying a professional and go snorkeling (winging it yourself) and it turns out poorly, your chances of ever graduating to scuba diving will be significantly reduced. (Think about that) If you ever aspire to scuba diving after snorkeling and your snorkeling experience is poor, you will never (want) be a scuba diver.

Another warning: Please do not get on a cruise ship to snorkel for the first time ever. You will be one of hundreds of snorkelers and get no individual attention, at all. You will feel like cattle in the corral being herded off the ship into the sea without lessons of any kind. With 50 people on a boat (minimum) there is no possible, physical way everyone can be trained at once. Snorkeling for the first time or in marginal conditions is much harder than scuba diving. You need to get lessons and trained professionally because you'll have a better time.

Here is a testimonial from Sarah, a 3rd time snorkeler: (edited for length – full testimonial available on yelp)
"This experience was not only an outstanding snorkeling experience, but also a valuable lesson in snorkeling education. Laura assisted us with our snorkeling education before we went to our snorkeling spot. She was absolutely amazing in the amount of information she gave to make our experience better. I really didn't believe there was anything else for me to learn; however when we started snorkeling her lesson made a large impact on my experience. I was so calm and focused in the water. I saw so many fish and plants; it was breathtaking. The entire family had a wonderful and memorable experience. I highly recommend using Laura for your snorkeling needs. I have decided the SCUBA lessons are next for me and I will certainly choose Laura for that experience.

Friends Should Not Let Friends Teach Friends

“Friends Should Not Let Friends Teach Friends” was the saying on the sign that was posted at the top of the Blue Chair at Mount Hood Ski Resort.
A friend, neighbor or spouse can try to be helpful, but often do more harm than good. This statement is not to scare you or alarm you but make you aware that Non-professional teachers forget those little things that open big doors of a bad experience.

Little hinges open big doors. Think about that. Little small hinges with screws support a door of massive size. Take this and apply it to snorkeling. Little things like improper mask placement, (it has to be perfect) and possibly fins that are too tight can lead to BIG discomforts later and a BAD time.

Snorkeling is not, scary, frightening or dangerous and does not have to be, at all, once you are properly trained.

The Easiest Way to Go Snorkeling is Make a Phone Call.

Hopefully, you will be one of those really smart folks and call now for a reservation, we work by appointment only.

It is easy to book a lesson with Laura and it is the only way to make an appointment. You must call or text the number on this website. You will not get a secretary or assistant, a call center or a voice answering service. You might get voice mail if Laura is submerged underwater with clients or in the classroom. Only then will you be asked to leave a message.

Laura works alone is because she can only take so many people per day and per week. The clients that are serious (not curious) call to make an appointment because they want to be a part of the special few that get to train with Laura on a daily basis.

You have to telephone in your credit card (or to give your address so she can send you the course materials before arriving in town) is because Laura does not like using her credit card on the internet so she doesn't ask her clients to do it either.  This way, there is no chance of hacking your information on-line and no chance of identity theft by our company, period.

You are fully protected by our 100% No-Risk Double-Guarantee. If you do not increase your confidence in and around the water over the course of the class, just let us know and we will send you a prompt refund. All you have to do is let us know after the end of the pool training session. No questions asked.
