Do we need water shoes or vibrams?

Do we need some sort of water shoes or vibrams for going snorkling and to explore at Taylor Bay and on skiffs? Or are flip flops fine?

For the above I would think flip flops are fine. For the snorkel tour I was the only one with any kind of footwear and they asked me to take them off so I wouldn't get the deck dirty. The path to Taylor Bay is short and easy so flip flops should be fine here as well. The only time I needed my water shoes was riding horses with Provo Ponies. Have a great time!

We bought water shoes and didn't even put them on once. In fact, next time I won't bring anything but flipflops.

Flip flops that can get wet are fine, unless you plan to climb on sharp iron shore which we always seem to do. I have some Teva flip flops and Dash has some hiking sandals since we often find ourselves on sharp rocks.
