Good Practices for Snorkeling and Diving

Although scuba diving and snorkeling are two of the most relaxing and enjoyable sports for tourists, there are some rules to consider and some responsibilities we need to take to protect ourselves and the marine environment:

The ocean world is not our home. Please keep it clean by not throwing trash on the beaches or the sea, and feel free to pick up any garbage you see lying around.

When snorkeling or diving, avoid touching corals or marine animals. Know your physical limits and be aware of currents around certain points of the island. Get some information first. Speak with your dive resort before venturing off on a self-guided tour.

If you need to bring home souvenirs, choose carefully. Please don’t remove anything from under the sea and be aware of what you are purchasing in local shops.
