Scuba Diving vs Snorkeling – A Quick Comparison Guide

If you’re travelling to Belize and new to underwater sports, it can be challenging to decide whether scuba diving or snorkeling is the activity that suits them best.

To help decide, Raffles Praslin has created an infographic piece that aims to compare scuba diving with snorkeling.  The infographic looks at the history behind the two activities and the practical differences in terms of equipment, training and required certificates.

It also explores the depth of the ocean and shows the world record for deepest free dive and scuba dive, and outlines how deep down animals and machines have reached. The infographic also provides a handy guide to the best practices when carrying out the activities in order to stay safe and respect the ocean and its wildlife.
