Snorkel Tubes for Swimming

The best snorkel for swimming and underwater activities are traditionally made from smooth coloured plastic tubing.

A clip assembly attaches the plastic J-shaped breathing tube to one side of the mask strap - left side if you are a scuba diver.

How Snorkels Work

The ancient history of breathing through a tube, while submerged in water, dates back to 3,000 BC. Sponge farmers used a hollow reed as an air tube.

However, the best modern snorkels are fitted with a purge valve to drain excess seawater from the bottom orifice back into the ocean. Nowadays, the top manufacturers have produced ergonomically designed dry snorkels that are virtually waterproof.

Good quality, dry snorkels combine an ultra-low profile with superior airflow technology which eliminates almost any water from splashing into the barrel.

Snorkel Tubes - coloured plastic snorkelsModern breather tubes have a mask attachment called a keeper, a large bore for ease of breathing and displacement clearing, and a purge valve for easy draining of excess salt water.

Snorkel breathing at the surface allows you to rest your face head-down in the water, inhaling air through the half submerged vertical plastic tube.

When you have mastered the technique for using your dive mask and snorkel kit, you can sustain breathing at sea level for long periods of time without lifting your head from the water.

The best snorkel and mask brand is one that provides you with a water-tight seal and a snug fit on your face. It is a snorkeler’s most personal piece of gear - meaning you put it in your mouth - so the best price may not be your most important issue if you are buying new gear. Renting second hand equipment can be unhygienic at best and a disgusting experience at worst.
