Buying vs. Renting Your Gear

A frequent debate among snorkelers is whether or not to buy your own gear or simply rent it wherever you are going snorkeling; there are benefits to doing either. A big determining factor on whether or not to buy your own gear is thinking how frequently you plan on snorkeling.  An advantage to renting your gear is not having to take all your own gear with you everywhere you go, and to just drop it off at the rental shop once you are done.  Most snorkeling places will offer rental gear, but it is important to keep in mind on how worn the gear is and how well it has been cleaned in-between users.    There are several advantages of buying your own set of snorkeling gear. There are numerous styles and designs to masks, snorkels, and fins you have to choose from when you buy your own gear. With rentals there are usually one or two standard designs of all your necessary gear to choose from, which may not fit correctly or as well as they could. All gear is also slightly different which can make getting used to all of it very difficult each time you choose to snorkel. Buying your own gear with the specific styles and the proper fit you need and using your own gear repeatedly will help you get used to it and make for a more comfortable snorkeling experience.

Snorkeling Basics If you are an avid lover of the ocean or marine life or are just curious about it then you simply must take up snorkeling as a hobby. Snorkeling allows you to see an underwater world completely unique and isolated from our own.  Unlike SCUBA diving, you do not need an entire setup of gear. A mask, snorkel, set of fins, and snorkeling vest are all basic gear you will need. If you do not have all your own gear before vacation no worries, nearly every snorkeling location you will visit offers rentals on everything you will need for a great snorkeling experience. Snorkeling is appropriate for people of all ages, including children typically older than the age of 5. There are no certification requirements for snorkeling either, which makes it the perfect activity for the entire family.  



If you're looking for top of the line mask, snorkel and fins at an unbeatable price, you may want to consider the Snorkelcity Explorer Set.
