I keep hearing differant things to do when I leave the ship and go to snorkeling. Some say to be sure to wear water socks. Others say to wear fins. Which is it? Thanx, Leroy

If the current where you are snorkeling is strong, it is important to wear fins. I hate the fins, but learned my lesson at Princess Cays in 1999. The current was VERY strong and I was exhausted when I finally made it back.

If you are snorkeling in a protected cove with little or no current, water shoes should be fine.

i bring my own gear, fins included, i find it so much easier to maneuver around in the water with fins, and as Pea stated if you are swimming with a current, fins make it so much easier.

Hi Leroy,
Watershoes are a must if you plan on climbing the falls in Jamaica or go swimming in a rocky beach, otherwise its fins for snorkeling.

Have Fun!
