Snorkelling with Decathlon

And we're back! It's been a really full on couple of weeks what with a change in job and training ramping up it's taken me awhile to adjust to a new schedule in, well, everything. But we're back, and I'm finally able to share one of our favourite adventures in the Andaman Islands - snorkelling!

The Andaman Islands have some of the best dive sites in the world. The water is clear and warm. There are beautiful reefs to explore and amazing tropical fish that swim right up to you, if you stay still enough. It's something else! Nothing is more special than getting in the water and exploring the other world under the sea!

Mike and I knew when we were planning to head to Andaman that we'd want to snorkel, but neither of us particularly liked the idea of hiring gear, I mean who knows whose mouth that snorkel has been in! Thankfully we were lucky enough to be hooked up with amazing Easybreath Masks by the guys at Decathlon, cool full face masks that let you breath normally.

I won't lie, we'd been eyeing up these masks for awhile, and were really excited to finally put them to the test. It's a good thing they didn't disappoint. In the past I've used normal masks and snorkels, but they've not always been comfortable. There's the issue of having something in your mouth, and having to regulate your breathing to deal with that, and fogging when you accidentally breath out through your nose (an issue for someone like me who practices nasal only breathing!), something which you totally avoid with the Easybreath. The big thing I was worried about was leaking, I didn't want to miss anything during my underwater adventure, and thankfully the seal held up perfectly! It was absolutely amazing being able to see everything clearly, especially when the fish swam right up to me, I can't begin to explain how beautiful they were! 

I really love the Easybreath, it really made our experience in the Andaman Islands, and I can't wait to get it out again in Menorca this summer! 

*Decathlon kindly gifted me the Easybreath Mask, my rash guard and board shorts, but all opinions are very much my own!
