Eco-Friendly Gear and Responsible Practices for Reef-Safe Snorkeling

As part of their commitment to promoting reef-safe snorkeling, The Vijitt Resort Phuket encourages the use of eco-friendly equipment and responsible practices to minimize any adverse environmental impact:

  • Biodegradable Sunscreen: Traditional sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that can damage coral reefs and marine life. Switch to a reef-safe, biodegradable sunscreen to protect your skin without causing harm to the underwater ecosystem.
  • Snorkeling Fins: To avoid damaging corals or stirring up sediment, select shorter fins, which provide better control and precision while snorkeling.
  • Look, but Don’t Touch: Remember that coral reefs and marine creatures are delicate and can be harmed by human interaction. Observe the dazzling marine life from a safe distance, and avoid touching or disturbing their natural habitats.

By following these guidelines, travelers can ensure that their snorkeling experiences are not only unforgettable but also sustainable and environmentally responsible.
