Cancun is a city that has much to offer… so much so, in fact, that it can be difficult to isolate the few things that you really want to do while on vacation. In amongst the usual tours, trips, activities, and clubs, however, a new craze is growing; people in Cancun have come to love Snuba! Yes you read right, SNUBA!
If you love the sea but don’t have a diving certificate, then snuba is really going to rock your world.
Snuba? Did I read that correctly?
Yes, you heard us… we said Snuba; Snuba is a new way to enjoy the ocean from the very best vantage point available… under the waves themselves. This doesn’t sound much different to snorkelling or scuba diving, we hear you say? Well, you’re both right and wrong when it comes to this; Snuba is a mix of both, and we like to say that it’s a mix of the best that both have to offer. The depth and thrill of scuba diving without the complex and heavy equipment, but the freedom to go further than snorkelling might allow due to an air supply.
How snub works
You will be wearing a regulator, but your air-supply won’t be on your back. Rather it will be held at the surface by a floating raft, thereby freeing you from the bulk and intricacies of this piece of equipment. This make for an exciting activity which can be enjoyed by people of all ages; there’s even specialized equipment which allows 4-year-olds to take part!
No experience necessary
You don’t need a lot of experience, confidence, or a certification to take part in snuba either; you just need to be able to swim; your instructor will be there for everything else. The safety debriefing will take around fifteen minutes and will cover what you need to know about the equipment as well as what to expect from your experience. After this you will be fitted with your fins, weight belt, and harness before getting into the water. The way snuba is set up allows you to go anywhere from 2 to 20 feet down into the water; it’s all about what you’re comfortable with, and your guide will be there every step of the way to make sure you’re alright.
Snuba lets you explore the underwater environment with unprecedented freedom and comfort, and it really is family friendly. If you want to make memories this vacation, you really should consider snuba in Cancun for you and your family; you could even take an underwater camera and catch the snapshots of a lifetime!
