Alone or accompanied
Anyone who wants to start practicing this activity can do so by hiring a diving instructor who knows the better areas. In cities such as Madryn, diving capital, it is possible to snorkel with sea lions by hiring an excursion.
They will also be able to experience this practice on their own. First of all that they have to do is learn how to put on the diving equipment properly. The tube should have the nozzle between the teeth (without biting it) and behind the lips, while the lunettes should fit the size of the head with their ribbons. It is very important that they do not overtighten it.
Once in the water
When entering the sea, it is recommended to do it on your back with the legs of frogs on and without haste. If you intend to reach the place of immersion, it should be carefully lowered to avoid impact and that the equipment can be removed.

However, they are coming out new lunetas to the market that allow you to inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. The essential thing is to breathe quietly without panicking thinking oxygen was missing. If you are going to dive completely, it is need a deep breath to fill the lungs and be able to release it progressively.
While snorkeling there is always the possibility that water through the tube despite the valve. In case this happens, the form The fastest to clean the tube is to pull the top to the surface. Then blow very hard so that the water is shot up.
