Hobbs State Park to Offer More Snorkeling Tours

If you haven’t been snorkeling, you’re missing out on a lot of fun.  You don’t need any heavy scuba equipment, and you don’t need any extensive training.  All you need is a yen to get into Beaver Lake to search for critters, and interesting rock formations around you.  There are lots of interesting things to see in the shallow water, and sometimes the little blue gills will even nibble on the hairs on your legs.  You will appreciate Beaver Lake in a different way.

Your Park interpreter will take you on a short pontoon boat ride to a pristine, quiet cove of Beaver Lake where you can search for the hidden diversity of flora and fauna in the clear, cool water.

Bring sunscreen, and wear appropriate clothing for swimming, including water shoes (no sandals/flip-flops).  Participants must wear a life jacket.  Life Jackets, masks, and snorkels will be provided.  (You keep your snorkel)
