Basic Snorkels


Snorkels: There are 3 main groups of snorkels; the straight-through tube, the snorkel with a purge valve at the bottom, and the snorkel with a purge valve and a dry top. The simple old school straight through snorkel is only really used in octopush or other in-water competitive sports, we also see it coming back in a soft roll-up version allowing for easy storage, a popular one with instructors. The snorkel with the purge valve on the mouthpiece is by far the most popular one at the time of writing, with many different variants on the market it can be hard to choose which one suits you best, generally speaking, the flexible tube should not be too stiff or too floppy, the purge valve won't clear the entire tube but it will remove any accidental ingress of water as you are breathing. The snorkels with the closed top effectively seal off when you submerge, hence they are uniquely suited for those that want to dip their head under relatively often.
