How much is snorket rental and worth it to snorkel from boat?


Recommended Posts

Our plan is to go with Rony's so we can see the Manakawei sloth and monkey based on other's reviews.  We are on Symphony in Feb. 


Then, we chose Infinity Bay for $20 per person to go snorkeling, beach and pool for our kids and group.  Infinity charges $10 for snorkel rental and first come, first serve.  


We arrive Coxen Hole around 9am, and our main priority is the sloth so I presume we will do this first. 


Wondering if there are many places along West Bay Beach to rent snorkel in case Infinity Bay sold out of snorkel gear.  We may also do snorkel from the boat tours.  I read, you just find a guy to take you out.  Do they come with guides.  How long and how much for a boat to take you out.  Also, curious if worth it vs just swimming from shore.  My kids are 11 and strong swimmers but I think we don't want a strong current and would likely want a floatie or snorkel vest for safety.  Thanks

There are heaps of dive shops and the odd local offering snorkel gear but I gotta tell ya I would not use a stranger's toothbrush you sure would not catch me renting snorkel gear in a third world country. 


See what the snorkeling steps from the sand at Infinty does for your, if  your kids get bored or bothered by to many people hire one of the boat guys. Ask if they will guide you in the water. 


As far as prices...such things are fluid in the island. Per person prices. 


There is a local guy at Foster's by the name of Daniel, he is very kind. Perhaps walk up and ask him or it maybe possible to arrange with him through Foster's website...ya know what..I will ask him before I leave the island.
