We believe we all have a responsibility to help protect the places where we snorkel, that's why we've created Snorkel for Good. With Snorkel for Good we've pledged 12,000 USD for the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) via our Rash Guard Program. It's pretty simple, purchase one of our personalized Snorkel for Good-Fourth Element Hydro-T rash guards and 100% of the funds go to the Coral Triangle Center - each rash guard retails at 60 USD, with a full 60 USD going to CTC. We have 200 available for purchase with shipping across the USA.
We first started following CTC through our travels in Indonesia. They are active in many of the destinations we offer Snorkel Venture tours to, particularly Indonesia. From creating Marine Protected Areas to working closely with local communities to form conservation strategies and sustainable development, their commitment also reaches across Philippines, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and wider regions of the Coral Triangle.
If you've been on tour with us you might recognize our personally branded rash guards - it's the first bit of kit our tour leaders pack alongside a mask and snorkel. They are quick drying, loose fitting for extra comfort, and have superb eco credentials being made from recycled ghost nets. In a nut shell they are top quality and we absolutely love them.

The team at Snorkel Venture were very much involved in the unique design process of these rash guards. Alongside creatives at Fourth Element we wanted to bring colour and style to the shirt. Frontside is a colourful reef image with the iconic whaleshark. Our logo is on the back and we have a logo for Snorkel for Good on the right arm.
For years Fourth Element have been creating leading products for snorkelers. The Hydro-T Rash Guard is made from a thread derived from reclaimed ghost nets, yet the way it fits and functions makes it ultra versatile in or out of the water.
The advanced and durable material offers SPF 50+ while also wicking away water from your body keeping you comfortable thanks to the loose fit. In the water it functions just as a rash guard should and then dries rapidly when you surface.
With the Fourth Element Hydro-T you don’t have to worry about packing multiple changes of clothes, with this one vest you’ll be set for everything from kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and of course many hours of snorkeling.
Rash guards will be available for order July 2020. If you would like to pre order contact us here.
