Howdy....Packing-up for the Yucatan trip and have questions about snorkeling, at which we are completely inexperienced, but plan on changing that. We are bringing our own gear -- newly puchased.
Is flotation used for swimmin' with the sharks? Pfds (life jackets), snorkel vests, wet suits?
I bought these snorkel vests based on a recommendation.....Dunno. Seems the pfds we use for whitewater kayaking are quite superior. A pfd is bulky, but I'm thinking about packing them. Anybody ever wear one on a plane? I am serious. :) Would have to take it off to fit in the seat, I realize.
Look, crazy couple here. Our motto is, "We don't suffer from insanity, we enjoy every minute of it."
Plan on bringing "shorty" wet suits. Useful?
We'll be snorkeling cenotes as well as coastal beaches and the WS thing. I suppose that crocs inhabit some cenotes. Do people get eaten occasionally? Happens in Florida. We hear the news.
We have 2 boat dives booked for the reef off the Caribbean coast, but that won't be until the end of the trip.
Feedback mucho appreciated!!
