Snorkeling Gear: Masks, Fins & Sets
Snorkeling is a great activity for kids or adults of any age. Unlike SCUBA diving, snorkeling can be accomplished without a lengthy certification process and a variety of expensive gear. Before you jump in the water, it helps to have a fitted snorkel mask and a comfortable pair of fins. There are many masks and snorkels to choose from, but your main goal is to find one that contours to the shape of your face. Consider the affordable Body Glove Amaze Purge Mask and Whistle Snorkel Combo as shop around. The oversized lenses include a silicone facial skirt that helps to keep water out of the mask as you float around the ocean with ease.
Snorkel fins are equally as important as the mask when you tackle this sport. Depending on how often you plan to snorkel and your current budget, you can choose from a wide variety of fins. Some of the budget-friendly fins are a one-size-fits-all and will adjust to the size and shape of your foot. All fins are designed to help you glide through the ocean water with ease so you can select a style that meets your swimming needs. Other useful gear including a snorkel bag can be purchased to tote along all your valuables. You can also opt to shop for custom fit fins that can be used for both snorkeling and SCUBA diving if you plan to be certified at a later date or time.
You can find all in one bundles that combine the fins, mask, and snorkel into one combination pack to save time and money. The Body Glove Illuminary snorkel set, for example, combines all the required equipment pieces for a final total well under $100.
Get your gear and get started. Snorkeling is a fun and easy way to enjoy many of the amazing sites the ocean has to offer. For a minimal equipment cost, you can easily find a new sport to enjoy while close to home or on vacation.
