As the allure of the outdoors continues to get us off the couch and into the wild, and what better way to visit our aquatic world on a semi-regular basis than snorkeling? It’s fun, easy, safe and best of all anyone can learn. And because the oceans take up almost three-quarters of our planet, understand the depths below would only serve to enlighten us to how the “other half” lives.

Check out these options for the best snorkeling gear without breaking the bank.

Finis Swimmer’s Snorkel

This basic swimmer’s snorkel is great for an afternoon of water recreation in calm conditions. The curved design of the tube allows for easy, clear breathing and works great with most masks or swimming goggles you’d want to wear. So don’t be turned off by the design. It’s one of the better snorkels currently on the market.

Speedo Adult Dive Mask

A functional dive mask is a must for anyone looking into snorkeling on a regular basis. This Speedo mask features an exclusive anti-fog coating to keep you seeing clear as day while you peruse life in the shallow seas. Also, Speedo’s trademark speed fit system helps you create a snug fit right away, and the silicone skirt provides the user with an additional level of comfort while sealing water from entering the mask.

Cressi Palau Snorkeling Swim Fins

When purchasing fins, many buyers look toward the larger diver fins thinking these will serve them better in the water. However, this isn’t always the case. Such fins are usually reserved for deep water divers. Instead, since you’ll be scratching the surface of the sea, shorter, more user-friendly fins are the call. Try these Cressi Swim Fins for example. They’re easy to put on and take off, can be worn over some thin footwear for protection and their size and durability allow for plenty of strength and power behind the foot.

Cressi Palau Snorkeling Kit

Sometimes the best way to save a buck is to purchase a whole kit at once. With the Cressi Palau snorkeling set, you get all the above for a less expensive combined price. This kit, in particular, offers a dry snorkel and a two-window mask with silicone skirt. The snorkel also has an anti-splash feature to seal the tube for diving. It also comes with two swim fins and a mesh bag to keep it all together as you travel.
