Extreme Shallow Snorkeling

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Irrigation season is here, which means there's finally a reason to break out the snorkel gear for some extreme shallow snorkeling.

It's all about the stay-cation, right?

Extreme shallow snorkeling is actually a sport/recreation/joke practiced by the one (and perhaps only) shallow snorkeling team out of called Les Fruits de Mer.

The Fruits, who dress up in Zissou-esque red caps and blue, button-up dress shirts, write the sport was founded 2006 in the Nusa Dua area of Bali in a large pool of water, 6-inches deep. Since, the team has traveled to, and documented life forms in, the shallow waters of Bermuda, St. Martin, and Honduras.

You can stay tuned to the Fruits de Mer website for updates, specie documentation, and future travels. And in the meantime, let us know what you find lurking below that sprinkler head.
