I was wondering would this be adequate gear if I am trying to obtain my open water certification or is it more for snorkeling related activities or both?
Tucker H I bought this set and it is a nice set, however, it is more for an infrequent snorkeler. I have no doubt that its good gear, but if you're looking for gear for your open water certification, i would suggest buying some higher end gear. The fins on this package are extremely small, and will not fit my booties. I would definitely advise you to build your own package (i just built one two days ago with high end gear for about $150)
