Snorkeling With High Blood Pressure
I am wondering about snorkeling with high blood pressure. In June I will be going on a cruise to the Western Caribbean. I was checking out the snorkeling excursions and at one of the ports the snorkeling info stated that those with asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure could not participate. I snorkeled before on a cruise excursion with no restrictions listed and the other ports on the upcoming cruise do not list restrictions for their snorkeling excursions.
I have done some research on the internet and can't really find an answer about why some snorkeling excursions state restrictions and some don't. These are really just beginner low impact snorkeling dives. I can understand major health issues but diabetes and high blood pressure is more common that one would think and controlled by medication. So why the restriction? Any info or thoughts concerning this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
