Snorkelling is the process of swimming on the surface of the water while outfitted with a designed tube known as a snorkel (A snorkel is a tube around 30 cm long, generally L or J-shaped and fixed with a mouth piece at the lower end, and designed of rubber or plastic. It is applied for breathing air from over the water surface area when the wearer’s mouth area and nose are submerged) coupled with swim fins occasionally.
