How to Purchase a Snorkel

When buying a snorkel you should ask yourself first whether you are going to use it for snorkeling, for scuba diving, or for both. This question that you need to ask yourself is actually the basis for the different snorkel designs in the market. If a snorkel is designed for scuba diving, then it is not the best one for snorkeling, and vice versa.

Choose the best snorkeling snorkel if that is what you intend to use it for. What most people purchase today are dry snorkels. This means that water does not enter the snorkel. The snorkel will remain free of water even if you dive or if a big wave goes over you with a dry snorkel. This means that you don’t have to get the water out to breathe. Ideal for snorkeling is a dry snorkel that is not big and bulky. When a snorkel is not big and bulky, we say it is low profile, and this is the ideal snorkel for snorkeling. If the snorkel is big, it weighs enough and will cause drag in the waters that they can pull on the mask strap where they are fastened to and make your mask leak. Some people get frustrated when their masks leak when they know that it fits perfectly. Simply taking off the snorkel off the mask will solve this problem. This means only one thing, you are using a big and bulky snorkel.

You should find a snorkel that attaches to the mask strap with a good system. With a good mask strap system you can slide your snorkel up and down and side to side. Your mask strap then will not be pulled when you put your snorkel in your mouth comfortably.

You should take extra care when purchasing a snorkel with many special features. Some features of a snorkel includes a dry top, 2 purges, and a flex tube mouthpiece which can give you benefits but will also make your snorkel heavy and bulky. You can’t have a low profile snorkel with all these features. You can purchase a snorkel with many special features as long as you know what these features are for, its benefits and drawbacks.

You should also have a snorkel for scuba diving. Divers with no snorkels sometimes struggle on the water surface after scuba diving. It is possible to run out of air while you are still away from the dive boat. Swimming back to the boat is easy with a snorkel. A snorkel will also help preserve air in your tank while on the surface. If you save air in your tank this means more time for diving under water.

A low profile snorkel is ideal for scuba diving. The snorkel should be small and drops comfortably to the side of your face when not in use since snorkels are used less while scuba diving.
