Default Renting Snorkel Equipment

We are traveling to Grand Turk and plan on exploring the island on our own and doing some snorkeling. We have our own snorkel equipment except for snorkel vests. Is there somewhere that we can rent snorkel vests? Also, about how much does it cost to rent just the vest?

I have not seen a snorkle gear rental place on Grand Turk, people have their own or use the excursion company's ... you will likely have to buy vests, they are not that expensive.

Unless you are concerned about your swimming ability, there is no need to rent a vest. They are issued by the excursion companies, as liability protection, not because of some other need.

We rented snorkle gear there and it didn't include the vest, which I agree that you will not need.

Default Warm water?

My wife and I will be going in June. Will the water be really warm then? We hate chilly temperatures!
