Since 2014, Brian Petruzzi has served as chief executive officer and president of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria Franchise in Galloway, New Jersey, a business that he also founded. In this role, he oversees the daily operations and handles the marketing efforts for the company. When he’s not working, Brian Petruzzi enjoys spending time in the water, where he snorkels.
Snorkeling is similar to scuba diving in that divers get a chance to view the seascapes, but unlike scuba diving, snorkeling does not require special training or a high price tag. To get the most out of a snorkeling experience, the World Wildlife Fund provides a few tips.
* Suit up. Think about using a wetsuit, even if swimming in warm waters. Wetsuits can ward off sunburn, give buoyancy, and protect the skin from prickly ocean particles.
* Maintain a distance. It may be tempting to touch marine life, but give the creatures some space. Keep in mind that some coral are toxic and can cause infection.
* Stay hydrated. For those who snorkel in warmer waters, the sun can zap energy and cause dehydration. Salt water can also deplete the skin of needed moisture. Make sure to hydrate with juice, bottled water, or other non-alcoholic beverages.
