Packing Essentials for a Snorkeling Trip


One of the safest and most affordable water sports is snorkeling. Snorkeling doesn’t require intense training or practicing in a pool, there is little gear involved which is also not expensive and all you need is be a good swimmer. Snorkeling is a great way to get close to nature underwater and relax. The must-go carry items for a snorkeling trip include:

Camera – An underwater camera is most essential because if you did not take those pictures with fish swimming by and bubbles around your head, snorkeling did not happen. There are many affordable camera options to buy from but the best ones come with the proper housing which allows you carefree swimming while clicking away your aquatic moments on the go.

Snorkeling gear – The most important item in snorkeling gear is a mask and fins which do not restrict your movement and vision. It is difficult to find a mask that suits you in terms of size and ease of use so take your time finding one that best suits you.

Lithium battery – a good backup of lithium battery is very important because if your batteries run out during your snorkeling expedition it ruins the entire fun. Lithium batteries are a restricted item for luggage so make sure to carry your supply in a handbag or grab some from the local store right as soon as you have landed on your destination because they might be difficult to find around a small beach. And it will be a shame if you can’t capture selfies with your ocean friends. 

There are several exotic places around Ao Nang that provide a perfect experience to snorkelers and booking a stay at one of Ao Nang Hostels never disappoints.
