As with any vacation or trip, overloading your bag for a snorkelling trip can be tempting. With so much equipment for the average snorkel diver, knowing what to bring and what to leave can be difficult. In this article, we'll walk you through the types of items that are essential for your Snorkel Adventure.
Most of the time, there are some very important things on your snorkelling trip, and some you can leave at home. Carrying unnecessary snorkel gear on your snorkelling trip will only slow you down and take up valuable space, and also, if you plan to fly, that extra burden can result in flight costs.
Therefore, it makes sense to only bring your most important items with you instead of all the snorkelling accessories you've accumulated over the years. So here is a brief description of what you should bring with you while snorkelling.
No snorkelling trip is fun if you don't bring your favourite snorkel with you. While it is possible to leave it at home and buy it at your destination, you will have a hard time getting used to an unfamiliar snorkel and this can detract from your overall enjoyment of the trip. Bringing your own snorkel is a much better way to get maximum fun and enjoyment from the first to last dive before you have to head back home.
If you enjoy doing a little underwater photography while snorkelling, then you can plan to bring your camera with you on your trip. However, to save space and money, you can now leave your camera at home and buy a snorkel mask with a built-in camera instead.
