Don't Laugh!! Is it possible to go snorkeling if you can't swim?Think Snorkel Vest. But they are not a life saving device, so I would avoid deep water snorkeling.
I hope you will be like me and find that you love it too. Good luck!

She is a "surface snorkeler", and is comfortable floating on the surface while I dive to the bottom. She has begun to get used to swim fins after a few hours of using them.

I just didn't want to sit on the sidelines while everyone was enjoying the snorkeling. I've got plenty of time, maybe I'll go try and learn to swim.
Funny thing is I joined the Navy with some buddies many years ago and couldn't swim. While my buddies were matching and doing drills on the blacktop, I had to go to the pool twice a week and learn to jump feet first off a 20 diving board and swim 100 yards to the other side of the pool. I made it, they taught me to float on my back and do a back stroke or something like that....and that was many many years ago...
Again thanks for the help....
