Ok so I have always owned and used my own snorkeling gear due to being super picky about germs from rental sets. We both have the traditional style snorkel set but to be honest, I never had much fun snorkeling because of always inhaling water, face pressure marks from the mask, fogging, etc. Probably would be better at it with practice but I don't get away very often on a snorkel type vacation - in fact last time I snorkeled was back in 2010. I have been considering not even taking the snorkel gear on our trip because not sure if I want to use it.
Apparently these easy breath masks solve all those problems. Do you think we should rent the masks for the week? ($50 each person) At a cost of $80 each on Ebay and having to pack them, purchasing our own is sort of out of the question. Plus we may not use it again for another 5 years. What about hygiene? I get a nasty feeling thinking of renting a used mask....but it is more practical.
Or should we just stick with what we have and use it? We only have 7 days in STJ and won't be able to go back for some time, I would rather not spend half the time fighting my snorkel gear lol
