A couple years ago, I traveled to Caye Caulker off the coast of Belize. During my stay, I went snorkeling for the first time. It was so much fun. Last year I returned to Caye Caulker with my brother in tow. We went snorkeling, and again, I had fun.
My past snorkeling trips, I had a problem with my mask fogging up on me. Not cool. So when the 'defog' was suggested as an additional purchase, I did. I'll let you know if it really works.
I admit, I really didn't know what is good and what is bad, as far as gear for the sport... is it really a 'sport', or just an 'activity'. Whatever it is, it's fun. And, of course, I needed a pack for everything. Okay, maybe I over did it, but after all... I'm an islander now. I just need a kayak to complete my ensemble.
