We had to wear a "safety vest" snorkeling in Maui last year... It was stated to be an insurance thing the company required... It wasn't a PFD at all...

It is not a Coast Guard requirement but an insurance policy requirement with a co2 cartridge as long as thy're in the water.
Don't ask me how I know.
