Snorkel gear availability at The Catalonia Royal Bavaro...

Do they have snorkel gear available at the Catalonia? How much is it and do they have optical (script)masks? How far off of the beach is the snorkeling? And can we bring our own gear and snorkel on our own? Thanks,Kevin...

I highly recommend you bring your own gear. The equipment is available free for 1 hr day. It's typical cheap tourist stuff. There is limited supply. Must leave $20 deposit. Snorkelling is very popular at this resort. Not that many meters off shore.

I bought a prescription mask over the internet a couple years ago. I was surprised how relatively inexpensive it was. Also, i noticed the other day Costco is selling snorkel gear -- the cheap stuff that suits our basic needs.

ive been snorkelling a few times and recommend you buy decent equipment, my wife and I bought our stuff at Costco our first time then ended up going and buying good stuff at a scuba shop. buying the better stuff will make your snorkelling a much better experience when it comes to your goggles fogging and leaking, water getting in your snorkel and so on so I recommend you go and spend the extra.
