With brain-eating amoebae in warm fresh water, and flesh eating bacteria from scratches of shellfish in warm salt water, I'm staying far away from all H2O unless it's combined with C2H5OH.

Slightly over worried I think. You're probably more likely to get struck by lighting.

Good deal OP

Can't tell if you're being serious or sarcastic.

Just used this set in Hawaii and it did its purpose. Next time I would only bring the mask and leave the fins at home to save space in luggage.

I usually bring my fins along but my parents didn't use theirs at all. I find it easier to swim against waves with fins so I guess it really depends on which island you will be visiting/where you will be snorkelling.

The dry snorkel is good. The mask is decent. Those fins are toy fins. Better to get real fins if you plan to do more serious snorkeling rather than one off rec snorkeling.

if you are serious about snorkeling then you have to bring your fins. so much easier to get depth, go distance, fight currents, etc. If you only go out for a short period and not far, then yeah, maybe save the luggage space.

I go to hawaii with carry on only and still pack my fins.

I bought these last year and it's a decent mask and snorkel, I wanted it for the action camera hinge. Took a bunch of underwater footage in the Caribbean and it was fine.
I also ditched the fins at home too large to carry, and I did well enough without them.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

Worth every penny if it means you don't have to use the gross dive shop loaners
