Although there is an abundance of snorkels on the market to choose from, we believe that you get what you pay for. Some cheap snorkels, plus budget mask and snorkel sets, offer snorkels which are not sealed correctly and therefore when bent and in use the snorkel lets in water not through the top, but through the centre. You won't find any of those here.
Diving Snorkels - The snorkels here are for scuba divers. Thus they naturally drop away from the diver's face because most of the time the diver will have a 2nd stage regulator in their mouth, not the snorkel mouthpiece. When the diver does use the snorkel the mouthpiece is bent up and into the mouth. This does place some additional pressure on the jaw and mouth compared to a snorkel for snorkellers that is designed to make this easier.
Snorkelling Snorkels - Some snorkels are designed more for snorkeling, rather than scuba diving. This means the snorkel is shaped so that the snorkel mouthpiece naturally comes close to the mouth. Thus the snorkeller has less pressure on their jaw and mouth. These snorkels are in our Snorkelling Snorkels section.
Note: For child and junior sized snorkels, please look at our Kids Corner.
