Check the weather and tides to ensure the conditions are suitable. Keep an eye out for boats and other activities in the water. Exercise caution.
If students go snorkelling in their own time (not organised by the school/a teacher), they should remember to always let their parents know where you are, swim with a buddy, and check the tide and weather conditions. Always be safe.
