Ideal for Rough Surf Conditions
The Cressi Supernova Dry Snorkel features a unique splashguard and dry-top valve to help reduce the amount of water that enters its barrel. The splashguard expertly seals out water when on the surface, while the dry top actively seals the breathing tube when fully submerged. Along with these two features, the snorkelís lower purge valve, which allows for water to be quickly and easily expelled, make the Supernova Dry an ideal choice to have on hand during rough water dives. For a truly top-of-the-line snorkeling experience, let Cressi outfit your entire dive. Use the Supernova Dry Snorkel in conjunction with a pair of Cressi fins and mask. Try the Cressi Pluma Fins, which are designed for easy forward propulsion and high maneuverability. And the Cressi Marea Mask, which features a two-pane window with tempered glass, is compatible with any Cressi snorkel.
While the Supernova Dryís dry top and splashguard help keep water out, the snorkel's ergonomically designed mouthpiece stays comfortable in the mouth for extended periods of time. The flexible lower bore and angled mouthpiece work together to greatly reduce jaw fatigue. And the soft, malleable 100% silicone mouthpiece stays in the mouth without clinching. The hypoallergenic material is gentle enough on all types of skin and is durable enough to hold up dive after dive.
Streamline for Snorkelers, Great for Divers
Because the snorkel features both the dry top and splashguard, it's an ideal piece of equipment for both snorkelers and scuba divers alike. The Supernova Dry mouthpiece was designed to drop away when not in use. This feature makes it perfect for scuba divers who use both a regulator and snorkel. And the Cressi snorkel is designed to be efficiently streamline, which helps reduce drag when swimming and snorkeling on the surface. All in all, the Supernova Dry is a great choice for serious divers. Your kids can also get in on the quality Cressi brand with their Kid's Dry Snorkel. It comes with all the great features of the Supernova Dry, just in a smaller, kid-friendly size. And for a more economical choice, try the Water Gear Kauai Snorkel. It is also a dry snorkel that's built for diving in rougher waters.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers, especially those that enjoy diving, were excited to try out this high quality Cressi product. Swimmers found that the soft silicone, ergonomic mouthpiece was extremely comfortable to hold in the mouth, even for extended periods of time. Its low profile design made it a breeze to swim at the surface. And the mouthpiece easily dropped out of the way when not in use. The dry top and splashguard also got high remarks as testers tried time and time again to get water into the barrel with little to no success. The AquaGear testers would recommend this product to any diver or snorkeler looking for a comfortable, durable snorkel.
The Bottom Line
The Supernova Dry Snorkel's innovative features, combined with Cressi's renowned design and quality, make this snorkel one of the best available. If you are an active diver, youíre sure to love this snorkel!
