Copy Edit du Jour

(As always, passage disguised to protect the innocent, by which I mean me.)

Here's the original passage:
Explorers on foot can view sea stars and hermit crabs, while snorkelers in the water can swim with moray eels and manta rays.

Though I applaud the writer's conscientious inclusion of land snorkelers, I went ahead and deleted "in the water."
