Having good gear is first step towards enjoying the underwater world of wonders. A mask that fits and a snorkel to breathe through while gazing at the marine life underneath you is the most basic gear you will need.
Please note that children MUST have a snorkel that fits their age.
It has to do with their lung capacity. Luckily there are a range of products for junior snorkelers as well..
Besides you will need a pair of wetshoes to avoid stings from sea urchins and poisonous stonefish (see the top 5 most poisnous fish in the Red Sea.
If you have become addicted to snorkeling then you can benefit from getting some more advanced equipment. Such as long fins, a wet suit and a weightbelt. Scaling up on gear means that you can stay in the water for hours and enjoy the life on the reef in details. And if you bring a camera. You can bring the memories back home to share with your friends and family.
