Flotation Vest for Snorkeling?

Jump to last reply

I am able to swim in shallow waters reasonably but am not confident in deeper sea waters (greater than 6 feet). I have never snorkeled before, but am keen to try during my upcoming visit to Maui in April. I plan to snorkel at the following locations - Honolua Bay, Black Rock, Chang's Beach, Palauea Beach.

Would I require a flotation vest (there's one advertised for $65 on Snorkel Bob's website) or can I limit my snorkeling to the shallow end of the beach & still find interesting marine life?

I would appreciate all opinions.
