My favourite activity while on vacation is laying around and doing absolutely nothing at all! With a 2 year old, it’s nearly impossible to get any relaxing time, but when I do get to relax, I take full advantage. Rather than just laying around the pool, I like to literally lay directly on the pool with a pool toy. If I could spend my whole entire vacation this way, I absolutely would. I have found a way to enjoy this favourite activity while on vacation without having any guilt – snorkeling, but not your traditional snorkeling, snorkeling on an inflatable raft.
For review, iSnorkel sent me the most amazing Seawindow Snorkeling Raft. This is a large blow up lounger with a window that allows viewing below into the ocean. We stayed at a resort known for it’s snorkeling and there were plenty of hotel guests that brought their traditional gear with them to take in the underwater world. I, on the other hand, had a state of the art snorkeling raft that allowed me not to only see what was going on along side the coral reef, but to see places no other humans had gone before – right on top of the coral reef.
I was the talk of the beach with my iSnokrel Seawindow Atlantis Raft. I was able to relax and become a part of the underwater world all on the comfort of a soft pool toy – I didn’t even have to get wet, and there is a little blowup pillow for my forehead to rest against – ahhh comfort. The window is like a large mask that also magnifies the submarine universe below making all the coral and tropical fish very easy and clear to see. The window did sometimes get a bit of an air pocket, but it never completely filled the entire window and I was always able to see what was happening below me.
My husband, my mother and other guests absolutely loved taking this out onto the ocean and exploring a part of an underwater world that otherwise is not so easily accessible. We were able to get to spots that otherwise were untouchable and see things that were otherwise unviewable. It was a very surreal feeling being right on top of the coral, I tended to make sure my toes were propped up safely on the raft. The coral was so close below, once in a while my hands would touch while I was trying to move myself around. I was a little nervous if I flipped over I would be in the middle of a coral reef, but there was no indication it was ever going to happen – it was just a very odd feeling, one of those feelings you know you are in a place you would normally be.
When we weren’t using the raft to discover the whole new world below looking at fish I had never seen before (or only in a fish tank), I was using it in the pool laying on my back or my front just to float around and relax. So, really not only was this an amazing tool to see the world below, it was also a relaxing pool toy – making it my favourite item we brought on vacation.
If want to see “a whole new world” and experience the ocean in a whole new way, I highly suggest the Seawindow Atlantis Raft – you will not be disappointed.
