Pineal Island and snorkeling?

We are going to Pineal Island one day and would like to snorkel. Since bringing our own equipment will add to our travel cost we thought maybe we could rent it. Is there a good place to rent from and is the equipment in good shape? Also if we want to do our own thing on Pineal where do we go for the best snorkeling and food and drink?

On Pinel, there is usually good snorkeling off to the right of the dock and there is a path which leads there. (The sandy beach is to the left.) I don't believe they rent equipment on the island.

They actually do rent equipment on the island and have a very nice roped-off section of reef. I believe the daily rental for snorkel and fins is about $15US and well worth it. Any of the beach bars on Pinel will provide tasty sustenance - just remember, everthing has to be shipped to the little island, so there are not a ton of choices.
