Snorkel Gear and Snorkeling Equipment at Snorkelers Direct
Your snorkeling kit contains, at minimum, your mask, your fins and your snorkel. Depending on the fins you buy, you may also need to buy neoprene booties. But don’t worry, Snorkelers Direct has the top brands and the best choices in every one of those categories. We’ll help you find what you need and get you ready for the water.
Snorkeling gear enables you to surface swim and breathe when you want to enjoy beautiful coral reefs and other interesting marine life. Whether you will use it with your dive gear or as a part of your snorkel gear set; a good snorkel is always necessary. There are 3 main types of snorkels: Dry Snorkels, Semi-Dry Snorkels, and Purge Snorkels. Some of these snorkels are available in bundle snorkel gear sets.
The latest in snorkeling equipment technology is the dry snorkel. Dry snorkels have a patented self regulating valve that senses the difference in weight between air and water. The snorkel top "shuts off" when submerged and automatically "opens up" when you surface.
Semi-dry snorkeling gear includes the semi-dry snorkels which have a splash guard at the top. While semi-dry snorkels keep out a majority of water, they do not block your air source completely as dry snorkels will. This allows for even breathing and more flexibility on wavy days.
Purge snorkels have a completely open top but have a purge valve at the bottom for easier clearing.
Snorkel gear also varies in size and style to accommodate kids and also extreme watersports, such as freediving and spearfishing. There are kid's snorkels with a smaller overall length and smaller mouthpiece. This allows for easier use. Other specially designed snorkeling gear includes spearfishing or freediving snorkels. The shapes of silicone mouthpiece and the air tube on this specially designed gear have been designed to follow the profile of the divers face. The internal diameter of the tube is large enough to optimize the air flow rate. Freediving snorkels stay out of the way and reduce drag.
Most snorkeling equipment is made with plastic and silicone to increase durability. A removable mouthpiece is a nice option since it allows you to change the mouthpiece to fit your needs or when it becomes worn. Most snorkel gear also offer adjustments that enable them to be attached to the mask securely. Those that slide, lock, and swivel make the attachment and adjustment process far easier.
