Snorkeling is a simple and safe activity, as long as you can swim of course. For introductory scuba diving sessions, and deep-sea experiences, it is advisable to get advice from your GP. People with untreated asthma, heart problems or high blood pressure might be advised against or forbidden from doing this activity. We recommend you don’t take a plane immediately after a dive (up to 24 hours).
If you are in good health, diving is suitable for all ages, even if a younger body will resist the pressure much better. That being said, it is never too late to get started and go on an adventure into the world of silence. The best time of day to start is definitely the morning, when the environment is waking up slowly, the light is soft and the body is rested. In St. Martin, you can go diving all year round thanks to the ideal climate.
