What should I look for in a snorkel?

Snorkels are a frequently found with many options and types, such as splash guards and valves to release water.

We however recommend only buying a simple J-Tube snorkel. Its cheaper, its easy to use, and there are no parts to go wrong on a sandy beach.

Its your lifeline to air so keep it simple…

They come in any colour, which is your choice, but the topper most 5-10 cm should be reflective or Flourescent Orange for visual identification in the water.

The mouth piece should have two bite blocks, with a skirt around them. This is usually soft silicone. The lips should seal over and around the skirt and teeth bite onto the blocks. Mouthpieces can come in different sizes so be sure to check.

Cost should be no more than approx £10.
