Premier Key West tour company, Best On Key West, is now offering special snuba excursions. Through the firm's professionally guided snuba tours, guests can enjoy the benefits of scuba diving in Key West without the use of bulky air tanks.
Online PR News – 08-June-2009 – – Key West, FL - Best On Key West, a popular Key West tour operator, recently announced it is now offering personally guided snuba tours. The firm's unique snuba tours allow customers to enjoy the beauty of the area's exotic marine life in a comfortable and safe setting.
By snuba diving with Best On Key West, guests are still able to take advantage of the many benefits of scuba diving in Key West, including being able to swim easily and comfortably well below the ocean's surface. The three-hour tour includes professional instruction as well as state-of-the-art snuba equipment.
Growing in popularity, snuba is a unique method of underwater swimming where the participant uses a dive mask, weights, swim fins and the same type of breathing apparatus as scuba diving. However, instead of having the bulky air tanks strapped on their backs, snuba diver's tanks are laid horizontally on the ocean's surface aboard five-foot pontoon style rafts. Since the rafts remain on the ocean's surface at all times, snuba diving often gives participants who may be leery to try scuba diving a good feel for the sport without the risk of diving too deep.
"At Best On Key West, we are thrilled to now offer visitors the choice of snuba diving. Snuba is an incredible underwater experience. Since all of our snuba tours are guided, guests can simply sit back and relax as they watch the panoramic views of the ocean below," says Chris Gardner of Best On Key West.
Participants of the Best On Key West snuba tour are given basic snuba instructions as they make their way out to the world-renown coral reef via boat. Professional guides help guests make the most of their snuba experience by directing them to the depths of the most abundant underwater habitats.
Priced at $99 per adult and $79 for children under age 13, Best On Key West's snuba tour is a popular activity for all members of the family. To participate in the snuba tour, guests must be 8 years or older and must be able to swim.
"Snuba diving is an activity that has steadily grown in popularity over the years. Snuba combines the best of both Key West snorkeling and diving, and it is extremely safe and easy for participants to learn. Through Best On Key West's snuba tour, guests will create underwater memories that will last a lifetime," says Gardner.
