Snorkelling in Open Waters

     The summer is upon us and there are a lot of people snorkeling and diving in the waters around the keys.  I was headed out of my marina the other evening when I noticed a boat at anchor at the edge of a marked channel.  I looked around and finally saw two snorkelers surface about 150 yards away from their boat that was not flying a dive flag.  The divers did not have their flags attach either.  Unless you have a death wish or really want to ruin your dive time this year.  Display those flags and have them attached to you if you are far away from your boat.

This is you should be doing if you are sharing the water with boaters.
