Wetsuits for Snorkeling

Snorkeling with a wetsuit helps you keep warm. It does so by trapping a thin layer of water between the neoprene suit and your skin.

In fact, your body warms the tiny layer of water trapped inside. Thus, it provides you with a thermal layer of ‘relatively’ warm water compared to the ambient water temperature.

Snorkeling wetsuit brands come in a large range of sizes, styles, colours, and thermal qualities. You can buy snorkeling wetsuits through our online store facility.

The sizing and thickness of your wetsuit is important. It should feel comfortable, and close-fitting, in order to maximize its efficiency as an exposure suit.

A snorkeling wetsuit (or exposure suit) can protect you from many of the hazards associated with swimming in cold water (e.g. hypothermia).

But, wearing a good quality wetsuit also helps to protect you from sunburn and collision with dangerous fish species, rocks, or boulders.
