A wetsuit helps out when snorkeling in fresh water. With this equipment, a snorkeler can relish the underwater glory during rather extended time with very little efforts.

Snorkeling is a great, relaxing, fun and very easy method to explore the undersea world. No need to carry heavy scuba gear, worry about technical issues, complete training or get any license.
