The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Snorkelling



Once you complete the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest you will be able to use orbs to build the Beach, once the Beach is built you need orbs to build the snorkel hire kiosk before your teen and adult sims can complete this hobby.


Once built a teen or adult sim can click on the first pool:

  • Snorkel in Tide Pool (costs S100 each time)- 1 hour

When you start you can only use the first pool,  you need to find all 6 different items in the tide pool to complete the first two row in the snorkelling collection to unlock the second pool which is the lagoon, you then need to find the 6 items in the lagoon to unlock the final pool which is the reef option, find the last 6 to complete the collection

  • Snorkel in tide pool (costs S100 each time)- 1 hour
  • Snorkel in lagoon (costs S200 each time)- 2 hours
  • Snorkel at reef (costs S300 each time)- 6 hours


NOTE: only one sim can do this hobby the first time, once you unlock all 3 pools 3 sims can complete this hobby at once

Once you complete the collection for the first time you can use the pools in any order but you will still need to do each option to find the different items to complete each row

  • Purple Anemone
  • Pink Pearl
  • Message in a Bottle
  • Yellow Coral
  • Ruby
  • Pink Starfish
  • Silver Coin
  • Ring
  • Red Crab
  • Emerald
  • Red Anemone
  • Green Coral


  • Silver Coin
  • Ring
  • Red Crab
  • Emerald
  • Red Anemone
  • Green Coral
  • Blue Crab
  • Gold Coin
  • Chest
  • Pirate Jug
  • Gold Pearl
  • Red Starfish


  • Blue Crab
  • Gold Coin
  • Chest
  • Pirate Jug
  • Gold Pearl
  • Red Starfish
You can now complete the collection!

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the snorkelling collectibles in that row. You still level up in this hobby but the hobby level up percentage isn’t important as the snorkelling collectibles don’t unlock depending on your level, when you finish two rows of snorkelling collectibles you will unlock the ability to find the items in the next 2 rows using the next pool.

The table below shows you the level up reward that your sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Splasher
2 Aquatic Investigator 250XP
3 Diving Guppie 500XP
4 Half Human, Half Fish S750
5 Deep One 10,000 Town Value
6 Aquatic Mammal 1LP

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed snorkelling collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete this hobby every two rows you complete you unlock a new pool to find more collectibles, for the other rows you will earn XPs. After the first time you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 18 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are inflatable seals, beach towels and 5LPs:

  • The first time you complete the snorkelling hobby you unlock inflatable seals which can be found in the pool items section and beach towels which can be found in the outdoor furniture section




  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
