Do I need to worry about sunscreen when I snorkel?

Snorkelers Need to Lather on the Sunscreen

Snorkeling doesn't take training. You can snorkel from a Grand Bahamas beach or over a reef in Key Largo, Florida. All you need to do is rent or buy a mask, snorkel and fins. You are ready for adventure. Snorkeling also is a great way to introduce children to nature.

But don't leave the sunscreen behind. Being underwater does not protect you from the sun's rays. In fact, the kind of diving snorkelers do -- near the water's surface -- makes them more prone to sunburn. Dive shops are the place to find sunscreen that is water-resistant as well as your snorkeling equipment.
