Luxury Vacations: Imagine exploring the depths of the underwater world; skimming past vibrantly colored coral reefs; and swimming alongside giant sea turtles. Now imagine getting to experience all of this without having to worry about any special kind of scuba certification. All of this is made possible with a little thing we like to call “snuba.”
No, this is not a typo, I actually meant to write snuba. As a hybrid of snorkeling and scuba diving, snuba is quickly becoming a preferred way to discover the majestic underwater world. Snuba, which has actually been around since the late 1980s, is a unique diving method that utilizes a 20-foot air line attached to a small raft.
Because of its simplicity, and the fact that no diving certification is required, snuba has become a popular activity among tourists. Snuba diving is offered in roughly 70 locations worldwide, including some of the more popular travel destinations such as Hawaii, Florida, California, the Caribbean, and throughout parts of Mexico.
