I have read a couple places that its best to bring your OWN snorkeling gear if you plan on snorkeling because the stuff they rent out doesn't always fit well?

Any thoughts on this? Would it be best to buy my own stuff before heading down to AC??

I did buy (and bring) my own mask, fins and snorkel...but only because I know I will use them again in the future. I also have a narrow face and am hard to fit.

The others who traveled with me did fine with what the dive shops rented out.

hmmm. okay maybe ill just go with the drive shops. How much does a mask and snorkel cost as opposed to renting?

Every mask I ever rented or borrowed leaked. Mr Malibu said it was because my head was mis-shapen, the prick. I purchased my own this year and no leaks.

IT was extremely annoying. In Houston you can get a good pair (mask and snorkel) for around $60. OMG you are in CA, probably $80 there. WELL worth it, very well worth it. When you are already out in the water and can't replace the mask, and you can't snorkel for more than 2 minutes at a time because the #$%& mask leaks, it is worth it. Don't want to raise the blood pressure.....laugh.......that is for us oldies but you will be very aggrivated.

If you want to put a rented mask on your face and a snorkle in your mouth that you have no idea who wore it last, GOOG LUCK!Take your own.

Well worth the investment. Plus, if you feel like going for a quick dip off the pier at Ramon's or anyplace else, you don't have to go through the hassle of renting.
