The Water Gear Kauai Snorkel is one of the best 'dry' snorkels around. Its unique features allow its barrel to stay totally dry, no matter how rough or choppy the water may be. Most traditional snorkels, especially those on the lower end of the price range, simply feature an open barrel. While these are great for a day at the pool or for recreational water sports, basic snorkels don't really work for more serious divers.
Simple and comfortable, the Water Gear Maui Snorkel is the perfect semi-dry snorkel for leisurely adventures and pool-splashing. Similar to the fully-dry Kauai Snorkel by Water Gear, the Maui features a standard top with no dry valve. The 360-degree rotating mouthpiece makes for a particularly comfortable user experience while the large diameter is to thank for easy breathing. The purge valve allows for quick, full expulsion.
The Water Gear PVC Snorkel is a great basic snorkel choice that's perfect for recreational use. The snorkel features a large, unobstructed barrel that allows for easy breathing and clearing. The barrel is so easy to breathe through and clear that it can be used by snorkelers of all ages and skill levels. Water Gear added a non-return purge valve to this basic snorkel in order to make clearing the tube as quick and painless as possible.
