Hi:
We'll be spending a week in Grand Cayman. Although, my boys are strong swimmers, my 7 year old would struggle in the ocean. She can swim but has not built her endurance yet. I know when we go out to StingRay City that life vests will be given to us but I want her wearing one any time we are in the water snorkeling. Any suggestions on a good vest for a child?

Thanks.

If you're going to be snorkeling in water over your son's head in the ocean and he's not a strong swimmer, then yes, you should definitely put a life jacket on him.

They have a lot of different types and prices of live vests at amazon that can be purchased online.

How funny. I was just going to say we got our life jackets at Amazon. They do have a lot of sizes and different prices. Very Happy

Before buying and lugging a jacket with you, check with some of the local water sports stores. I bet you can rent snorkel vests and not have to worry about baggage.

Anyone have a favorite dive shop that rents children's life jackets?

Thanks.

We bought cheap ones just for snorkeling. Like 25 bucks each. We are not going deep sea so we figured we shall be fine. Not overpacking with having a washer and dryer. We can wash.
