A New Website!

We are very excited to announce the launch of a new Snorkel Venture website hosted by our friends at Fourth Element! In late 2019 and early 2020, we established a partnership with Fourth Element—the people who produce our Snorkel for Good Rashguards—and through that partnership, we came up with the idea of this joint website.

This new website will by no means replace our current one, the intention behind it is to not only attract new snorkeling enthusiasts but also to act as a resource for snorkelers joining our trips. Fourth Element is one of the world’s leading underwater gear and apparel manufactures, not to mention the fact that they have what they call their “Ocean Positive” line of gear, all of which is made from recycled materials. So, as I said, the idea behind the collaboration was to provide our snorkeling guests with a tried and tested brand of snorkeling gear that will not only last and be very comfortable, but also be eco-friendly. There are not too many options for snorkeling-specific gear, most manufacturers are solely focused on divers, but both Snorkel Venture and Fourth Element aim to change that.

The site is very simple, there is a list of tours we run—not all of them are on there yet—and each tour has its own unique selection of Fourth-Element gear that know would work great for this particular tour. The site gives you a quick description of the water temperates as well as what you can expect from the weather. We’ve then hand-selected several items like wetsuits and or thermals that would suit the weather and water temperatures of this particular snorkel safari. There is of course a much larger list of Ocean Positive items that would also suit each tour, from things like water bottles, waterproof bags, shorts, leggings, and land apparel.
