Snooba, also known as air-hose-snorkeling, is a combination of snorkeling and diving. Instead of watching the fish and the corals from above, you’ll swim between the fish and the corals. You will breath through a mouthpiece, while the heavy tank is on board of the small dingy above you. Because of the long hose from the tank you can go to a depth of maximum 5 metres. The great thing about Snooba is that you can decide yourself to which depth you want to dive. During Snooba, there will be a guide who will instruct you under water.
Snooba is perfect for families, because you can choose the depth yourself. It is suitable for kids from the age of 8. Younger kids who are great swimmers, can join for snorkeling. This way, the whole family can enjoy the underwaterworld.
Cost: $ 70,00
Including: boat trip, equipment, drink, snack and certificate.
What does a Snooba adventure contain?
You arrive in the harbor and you find yourself a comfortable seat on the 10 meter speedboat. Then you will receive perfect fitting fins and together with the instructor you will search for the perfect mask. Once everyone is settled, we leave for a perfect Snooba place.
Once arrived at the Snooba place, you will receive a briefing about what’s going to happen and the safety instructions will be explained. Before you start with the Snooba, all the gear will be checked with a short test. Everything in place and are all the safety instructions known? We’re all set to go!
The instructor connects you to the tank and enters the water with you. You receive a comfortable weight. All ready to start the tour with the fish. The instructor stays near you and guides you through the water. After approximately 30 minutes, the Snooba adventure is done and you will receive your Snooba-certificate!
We use the following Snooba equipment:
This is a boat which is used to carry the dive tank. You don’t have to carry your own tank. During the Snooba, the dingy will be pulled so you can explore a big area.
The dive tank is located on the dingy. The hose connects you to the tank during the Snooba. The dive tank ensures the supply of air. This way you can breathe easily under water. The instructor keeps a close eye on the tank to make sure there is enough air left.
5 meter airhose
The air from the tank is brought to you by a 5 meters hose and is secured to your belt. You can dive to a depth of 5 meters and swim between the fish and corals.
1 meter hose with mouthpiece
The mouthpiece makes sure you can breathe under water and is attached to your weight belt. It’s the same mouth piece that is used in diving.
Lead is necessary to go under water. Without lead you would just float on the surface. With a little lead in your belt, you will go under water. You can decide yourself how deep you want to go. The instructor can adjust the weight of your belt.
You can see the fish and the corals through your mask. It is of importance that it’s a good fit, so you can really enjoy all the beauty under water during the Snooba.
You can wear fins for your comfort. This way you’ll move easily in the water and swimming will be less tiring.
