The Cressi Gamma Snorkel is a semi-dry snorkel thatâ™s perfect for snorkeling in both mild and rough surf. The top of the barrel features a splashguard that keeps water from entering the breathing tube during wavy or windy conditions. To further keep your mouth and lungs free of water, the Gamma Snorkel also features a drainage-well at the bottom of the barrel. The well helps collect any water that happens to enter the snorkel and allows it to be quickly expelled without interfering with breathing. If you know youâ™ll be diving in less than ideal conditions, then bring along the Gamma Snorkel to keep your mouth and lungs dry. Or try the Mexico Snorkel, which is another Cressi snorkel that features a dry top splashguard for an easy, comfortable swim. And for ultimate protection against rough surf, try the Water Gear Kauai Silicone Snorkel. It includes a multitude of features which ensure an always-dry breathing experience.
Simple, Elegant Design
The Cressi Gamma Snorkel is designed to offer both class and comfort on a budget. The snorkelâ™s streamlined shape helps to reduce drag while swimming at the surface. And while the Gamma looks great, itâ™s also comfortable to use. The angled, flexible lower section helps to reduce jaw fatigue. And the high-quality silicone mouthpiece guarantees an always-comfortable snorkeling experience. The Gamma Snorkel is available in a few different color options to suit every style. The clear tube is available with a black, blue, light blue, orange, pink or red top and mouthpiece. The silver tube option is available with a black top and mouthpiece, while the yellow tube features a clear top and mouthpiece. Because the Cressi snorkel comes with an adjustable clip that allows it to secure to any mask, be sure to pair your snorkeling adventure with a high quality mask as well. Try the Cressi Marea Snorkeling Mask with the Gamma Snorkel. This mask is great for snorkeling, free diving or scuba diving, and has a skirt edge that can adapt to most any face shape and size for a leak proof, comfortable fit.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool were ready for an underwater trial of the Cressi Gamma Snorkel. They found that the snorkel was an affordable, reliable choice. While the Gamma is an economical choice, it definitely felt more â~expensiveâ™ than its price reflected. Testers thought that the snorkel would be ideal for swimmers with smaller features since the mouthpiece is a bit on the small side. The Gamma tested great at the surface and swimmers thought that it would be perfect for any kind of recreational snorkeling outing.
The Bottom Line
If you plan on diving in wavy or windy conditions, the Cressi Gamma Snorkel can help keep your mouth and lungs dry and happy. Be sure to pick one up before your next snorkeling adventure.
