Snorkeling can be used for observations and lighter work in marine environment.

  • If snorkeling only at the surface, an observer in a boat or on shore is enough, and if risk of boat traffic an alpha flag should be used.
  • Snorkeling should always be done in pairs having visual contact; this means that one person should constantly be in the water and observe the snorkeling person.
  • When snorkeling only normal weight load is permitted and you must not perform work involving risk of entangling.
  • Snorkeling is permitted to a maximum depth of 10 metres and not deeper than the Secchi depth.
  • No snorkeling may take place at water temperatures below 4 °C or in strong currents.
