From how many knots would you say it is no longer suitable for snorkeling?

I tend to see what the water is doing rather than focus on the wind.....

If its really windy and thus choppy then I don't usually go snorkelling as the visibility may not be great.

I am also careful about currents, as its easy to forget when you're busy looking at things... if you stop swimming and notice you're moving at a fair pace, then head closer to shore.

Sorry its not a more specific answer, but I'm not a sailor, so I don't think in knots :oops:
