Our family's very much looking forward to our first visit to BI next month. However as I'm doing some reading, I am so discouraged by the talks of your rental car breakin and thefts at the beach. We are avid snorkelers and plan on hitting some nice beaches all over the island. I really hate the thought of having to carry a waterproof pouch with our belongings when all of us are in the water. We've snorkeled in Mexico, Turks Caicos, Florida and Maui/Kauai(back in '95) and hit the beaches all over California and never had to worry about getting our stuff stolen. I mean, is it really that bad?
