Snorkeling equipment with Sunwing | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Sunwing’s website says they allow an extra 5kg bag for snorkeling equipment consisting of fins and mask. I’m sure a snorkel would also be allowed but how about an inflatable snorkeling vest? Has anyone had any experiences with Sunwing about this?

I took my snorkel, mask, fins, and wetsuit with no difficulty, so I don’t expect they would object to a snorkel vest, but of course you never know for sure when you are going to get someone who takes everything literally. They didn’t inspect my gear, as I had it all wrapped up in a backpack and taped closed.

in the past when we would take our scuba gear it was allowed with no extra charges….but also there was no insurance coverage. Fortunately nothing ever happened and it arrive with us same flight. We did make sure that our home insurance was beefed-up to cover it if anything did happen

You should also be aware that sporting equipment bags are on the lower end of the pecking order. If cargo is full, sports bags will be left behind.

Wouldn’t want that to happen but a bit of snorkeling gear isn’t very heavy or large. Usually I put it in my suitcase but we’re hoping for a two week trip this winter so I might need the extra space.
I have never had a problem taking diving gear in a separate bag. The allowance is much greater. I have also included my snorkeling fins and wet suit and have never had problem. I always declare it as scuba gear.

One set of Scuba fins, boots, wetsuit ,gloves, 2 masks 2 sets of snorkel fins, 2 snorkels, 2 pairs of water shoes, camera case, a couple of bathing suits, waterproof bags and duffle bag weighs well under 20kg packed in a suitcase. Keep in mind this is for 2 people and the scuba allowance is 20kg per person.
