Learn How to Snorkel & Dive

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Monday, May 14th, 2018 at 11:27am.

The non-profit organization Friends of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park on north Singer Island, is hosting two free classes this month to teach people the fundamentals of snorkeling and diving. 

Whether you're new to South Florida or you've just never ventured into the underwater world, the Intro to Snorkeling class at John D. MacArthur will have you covered on all the basics in just an hour. 

Learn how to fit fins and masks, snorkeling safety, diving techniques, when and where to snorkel and more. After the 1 hour land-based course, you'll be free to dive in the clear waters of either side of the island- the Atlantic Ocean on the east and Intracoastal on the west side. 

The classes will be on Saturday the 19th and the 26th at 11 a.m. You only need to attend one, and if you can do the 19th it's a better day to snorkel immediately after class based on this month's tide chart. Classes are free with park admission which is $5 per vehicle. 

To reserve your spot call 561-624-6952.
