    Thanks for sharing! I just came back from snorkeling at a protected lagoon. There are additional ways to stay safe:

    — Wear a wide brimmed hat
    — Wear sun protective clothing can go a long way with reducing the amount of sunscreen that you use and reapply often
    — Wear swim leggings and swim long sleeve shirts
    — Avoid sun during the peak hours (10 AM – 4 PM)

    It also appears that the term “reef safe” is not actually a marketing term, and it’s not approved by the FDA.

      Hi LC! Great ideas for avoiding too much sun exposure. And that’s really interesting about the “reef safe” term — I wonder if that will change in the months/years to come
