What to Do with Towels, Shoes, Etc. While Snorkeling?

by Thompsonbrook
(CT, USA)

We are looking for tips or advice on what to do with our stuff (towels, shoes, other personal belongings) while we are out in the water snorkeling.

We are going to Bermuda and will be renting a Twizy. We understand that there is really no place to lock your stuff in the Twizy.

Thanks very much.

What We Do
by: Nicole & Galen

Hi Thompsonbrook, thanks for your question. While we recommend belting a waterproof box to you while you snorkel for your valuables (ID, money, credit cards, cell phone, keys, etc.), we normally leave our shoes, towels, inexpensive sunglasses, hats, snorkel bags, sunscreen, etc. on the beach well above the water line. Of course, we don't leave our shoes if we need them for entering and exiting the water. We have never had anything disappear doing this.

It will be interesting to hear if others have any different methods or experiences.

Stuff

We have used a snorkel belt with clips to attach a waterproof case for valuables such as car keys, etc. However the case leaked because we over filled it, our mistake.

On our last trip, we brought a portable lock-box with a detachable cable on Amazon which worked great. We left passports at our airbnb, but used the lock-box for keys and money. We attached the lock-box to our guild cart, our chaise lounge, or to the railing in our deck. No problem. We left towels, cover ups and shoes on the dock, with absolutely no problem.

Hi Pam, too bad your waterproof box leaked and ruined your phone. :(

You might have been saved if you had everything in your waterproof box in another waterproof bag, even a ziploc, inside. We always do this. It also helps with making sure you are not over-stuffing it. We mention this on the waterproof box page above under "Keep Your Stuff Dry."
