Rating: Ultra Dry isnt just a name
Reviewer: Andrew B.
Having been diving for 30 years, I was skeptical that the snorkel could work as well as advertised. In fact, it works even better than I could have imagined. I am accustomed to holding back a little air when I go deep in order to blow out the snorkel when I surface. With this snorkel, I can exhale, dive, surface, and inhale WITHOUT having to blow out the snorkel. It is amazing and I cant praise it enough.

Rating: Ultra Dry Snorkel
Reviewer: Karl E.
Its going to take some getting used to but Im slowly learning to adjust my breath in technique. I used this snorkel for the first time while diving with a tank on and a short distance surface swim, in rough conditions. I wasnt used to the shut off float mechanism which gives the ultra dry snorkel its name. Sometimes youll go to take that breathe of air only to find the snorkel is blocked by the float and you face the rude reality of no air intake. I suggest you practise with this snorkel in various conditions and get used to how it operates.

Rating: Snippets on the Snorkel
Reviewer: Lois Callaghan
I purchased this snorkel thinking it would be like all other snorkels and to my surprise, it was amazing. I tried to find a flaw but I could not. Its impossible for water to travel down the snorkel and using it is as smooth as velvet. Love it.

Rating: Ocean Ultra Dry Snorkel
Reviewer: Steve Hammitt
This snorkel performs perfectly . You go under when snorkeling and it blocks the water instantly . When you rise , air is there. If water sneeks in somehow from your mouth , a quick puff(no major air clearing) and it is gone right out the bottom one way disharge vent/port. My son is 4 and he had so much trouble with with $8 snorlels . He is a pro now and goes up and down like popcorn and butter blended togeter . The extra cost for me and my little guy was with every dime spent for incrediable diving/snorkeling. Buy one , you will love it

Rating: Great snorkel! I wouldnt want any other.
Reviewer: Christine O´Byrne  -  View all my reviews
I love this snorkel! I am a beginner, and had one incident where I had not blown all of the water out the day before. When I went in the water the next day I could hear this gurgling sound and then some water came in as I inhaled. I got scared, but after blowing the water out good I couldnt hear the gurgling anymore and it was dry from then on. I was snorkeling off Kauai, so the waves would come over the snorkel end quite a bit. I had no problems after I figured out the gurgling warning and blew it out each day.

Rating: the snorkel which seems hard to use...?
Reviewer: Rev Randall W Ackley  -  View all my reviews
i bought this snorkel as a replacement for an old one. i find two things, the mouthpiece with its hose does not fit to the front of my mouth, but the length of the hose pushes it off to the left side, with the snorkel on the right. also, the snorkel does not get out of the water unless head erect or turned toward the snorkel. good materials, i continue to use it, doing laps. i had surgery on my neck and doctor said no more swimming i asked if ok if i used a snorkel. he said yes. so, i use a snorkel to swim laps.

this is the first snorkel i have owned. i used it all through my open water certification. i used it to free dive a little and i didnt get a of water in it. if you dive deep enough with this snorkel in your mouth you will have to equalize it like your mask. my only complaint is that the mouth piece is so flexible and hangs just low enough that while you are diving when you grab for your low pressure inflator you will be grabbing your snorkel.

Rating: High Quality, Works Very Well - Completely Dry!
Reviewer: Kevin K.  -  View all my reviews
My wife uses this Oceanic snorkel and it is definitely superior to my Tusa completely dry snorkel. The floats on the flapper valve do not accidentally close the valve if she leans her head or takes a deep breath, as my Tusa will do. When you do get water into the snorkel through the mouthpiece when getting into the water, it is very easily expelled or simply drains out of the purge valve at the bottom. I like this snorkel so much Im going to replace my Tusa with this model, since the Tusa will occasionally close with a deep breath and STAY shut. Neither my wife nor I have ever had this happen with the Oceanic.

Rating: Oceanic UltraDry Snorkel Takes Cake
Reviewer: David Schrichte  -  View all my reviews
Naturally skeptical, I thought the claim of a truly dry snorkel was on parallel with a free trip to Fantasy Island. I am, however, pleased to report that after testing the Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel in both calm and rough seas, it more than lived up to its claim. It was fantastic to free dive down and not come up with a snorkel full of salt water. I often end up with severe cotton mouth after spending a day clearing saltwater from my snorkel. I rest assured that those days will be few and far between with this excellently designed snorkel.

Rating: No more saltwater taste
Reviewer: Eric R.  -  View all my reviews
i recently bought oceanic ultra dry snorkels for my wife and myself. just gave them their first test on a trip to the caribbean, and loved them. i must say i was skepticalthe claims seemed almost too unbelievable. we have always used higher quality equipment (the worst harm to the sport of snorkeling is done by giving novice swimmers a simple j-tube, welcoming a mouthful of sea, and hearing them swear off the reefs forever!), so i wasnt expecting a vast improvement. but the unique valve certainly did make a great difference. after submerging and re-surfacing your first action can actually be inhalation! i found myself still blowing to purge the snorkel- out of habit, but didnt even need to! and my best example of the valves benefit was found as i was near the shore with my head out of the water looking toward the beach for my wife-not really paying attention as a wave formed behind me. ive taken on my share of saltwater in just such a circumstance over the years. but it was truly amazing. i felt the ultra drys valve engage (just a small click) as the wave crashed, and when i bobbed to the surface my mouth was totally clear. it works without having to think about it! that may be the only drawback, because if i had to revert to a simple tube or minimally effective splash guard, id probably take on alot of brine to re-learn the art! i wont go back in without an ultra dry though. the silicone seemed to be great quality. very comfortable mouthpiece, even for my wife who has been irritated by some before. we give the snorkels our highest grade! dont keep swallowing waterget one of these!

Rating: Perfect Dry Snorkel - Scuba Snorkeling or Laps
Reviewer: Chet p.  -  View all my reviews
I bought this to replace a 20 year old snorkel that I finally broke in a car door. I use it for SCUBA, Reef snorkeling, and lap swimming. I hated the old style due to getting water in it every lap or two. This one never gets water in it, ever. I can go a full mile without clearing or sensing water in the mouthpiece. While going under in any sport, whether it is a lap line, a reef to explore or whatever, it stays dry and usable. I have also held the mouthpiece in and dove 16 Feet and come up and been breathing with no clearing. Amazing.

Rating: To those that hate sea water
Reviewer: Steven G.
When snorkeling, I get to distracted and never notice that my head keeps sneaking into the water. It always makes me gag and go into a frenzy when I start taking in sea water. So I tried the Ultra Dry. Now when I get the no air sensation, I know I have to straighten up but I dont start convulsing like Im having an attack. It does a great job of keeping the water out with no more than once when a teaspoon of water came in but was easily pushed out the mouthpiece diaphragm. I am extremely happy with this purchase

I purchased one of these for my wife and myself before leaving on a cruise to the Caribbean. They both performed flawlessly even during heavy surf.

Rating: great snorkel for choppy water
Reviewer: Tara S.
I used this snorkel daily for a week, in sometimes very choppy water. The potential for choppy water was the reason I chose to get a better dry snorkel. This is the most comfortable snorkel I have ever used. The mask clip is very adjustable and fit my mask very well. It worked great snorkeling reefs at surf edges, and in choppy waters. I think I got water in the snorkel twice in seven days in the water. Both times it cleared through the purge quickly with little force. The very soft and flexible mouth piece made hours of use really easy.. Wish I had gotten a new mask to go with it. This snorkel made free diving the most fun it has ever been. I have always struggled a little to clear my snorkel, and tended to not stay under very long so I still had the calm to clear my snorkel. Not an issue with this one. I stayed under longer with ease, getting deeper than ever before. On the surface, it was easy to stay really relaxed even in rougher water. If a swell or wave broke over me, the snorkel closed instantly, and opened right back up. It made such a difference. I had so much fun, with much less fatigue. Great for both less experienced snorkelers and pros alike.

Rating: True to form
Reviewer: Mark M.
This snorkel lives up to its name. In rough surf and diving 10-15 down to reefs to admire the sights up close I never had and issue with water entry to the snorkel. I will note that I did find however that if I "purged" on my acsent I did allow a small amount of water to enter but with minimal effort I quickly cleared through the bottom valve. Moral of the story...you dont "need" to purge on the way up to clear your snorkel (old habit) I liked it so much that while on vacation in Maui, Hawaii I talked my wife into upgrading her older equipment!

I have been diving since 1962 and have never had a snorkel that was worth a damn and generaly avoided them. The Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel is a super dry streamline snorkel and a joy to use. In the Florida Keys hunting lobster the water is choppy so the OUDS keeps me from swallowing sea water. Good job by Oceanic on the design. Ron Rarick

Rating: Great Item! Great Value!
Reviewer: Joseph W.  -  View all my reviews
this snorkel was a "trust" buy. i read the reviews and did some homework and it paid off. i took this on a beach trip and was amazed at the performance. even though the beach had red flags out during my swims, the snorkel did not allow a single of water to enter the tube. it was slightly difficult to attach to my face mask but held firm and was very comfortable against my head.the "stock" mouth piece was extremely comfortable and swung down away from my face without that usual whipping action. i believe this snorkel will last a very long time due to the fine material from which it was constructed. sorry scuba dealer. a great value for the cost. i am an occasional snorkeler and do not go on dive trips yet, but i am sure this will work well for recreational dives.

Rating: Best Snorkel Ever!!
Reviewer: DIRK D.  -  View all my reviews
So this little gem is probably my favorite piece of dive equipment I own. What is there to a snorkel right? a hole that goes to the surface for air? My old snorkel (or straw as i like to call it now) broke and I opted for a more expensive one with low expectations of it actually being a "Dry" snorkel but after about 20 to 30 dives I can honestly say its dryer than dry. I thought i would kind miss barley making it to the surface before forcing out all the water but I really dont! Absolutely zero water gets caught up in this snorkel and the only draw back i can think of is being about a foot under water and trying to take a breath and getting no air (cause its capped off) or sometimes I try and take a deep breath too fast and it does its job and clogs up and lastly you cant depict or imitate a whale that well when no water spurts out the top of your snorkel/blow hole. Def worth the money and will buy again if needed- also dont know about other "Dry" snorkels cause this is the first Ive ever owned but I can tell you Ive found one that so crucial I wont need to try any other.

Works great as advertised.... Just make sure that you are aware of the orientation of your snorkel. My son tried on mine and hES just learning to snorkel... he unintentionally immersed the snorkel and the ultra dry did what it was supposed which was to seal which caught him of guard because his air source suddenly was disrupted. Other than ensuring situational awareness, NO WORRIES!! Would greatly recommend!!!

Rating: good, but not 100% dry
Reviewer: Cortlen Hernandez  -  View all my reviews
so, i bought this snorkel because i was tired of drinking seawater when it was choppy out on the ocean. it works great..most of the time. i do a lot of freediving and spearfishing with this snorkel and for the most part it keeps water out but it still lets in some water. this becomes very annoying since it is now forcing me to inhale slowly to keep water from being inhaled from inside my snorkel. and for some reason, it is very difficult to just blow out those few s of water. but im picky. it really is a great snorkel, just not 100% dry. and one other little thing, its a pretty big snorkel. i was kind of surprised by its bulky-ness when it first arrived in the mail. but i got over that pretty quick. happy diving

This snorkel definitely remained dry. I just returned from a dive trip and was happy to see this snorkel work perfectly in choppy water. It is also extremely easy to clear. One drawback is the attachment gizmo for attaching to the mask. It was impossible to operate, always stuck. I eventually threw that away and now use a detachable silicone ring.

People cautioned me from buying a dry snorkel, I didnt listen, and Im glad. I like this snorkel more than any other snorkel Ive used. While some water got in, it was never enough to inhibit breathing. I could count on it. I dove scuba with this snorkel attached, and I never felt that it was too buoyant. Once after rolling off the boat, it fell off my mask (my fault) and descended. Nice snorkel!

the ultra dry is definitely the snorkel to get!!! just spend 2 weeks snorkeling in cozumel doing our own shore snorkeling (no tours) with my new ultra dry snorkel which is my 3rd snorkel over a 30 year span of a lot of snorkeling all around the world. 1. its true they are ultra dry. you do not get those occassional gulps of water or backwashes in your mouth while snorkeling. and best of all, because of that, you dont get water in your lungs, which means you dont come home coughing or a candidate for phenumonia. 2. get the yellow top for visibilitys sake so that boats can see you better as well as your snokeling buddy. i was very pleasantly surprized how effective the ultra dry snorkel really was. it exceeded my expectations.

Reviewer: Richard Lim  -  View all my reviews
The perfect snorkel that really stays dry. Purge works beautifully and so does the sliding air / water lock system.

Rating: snorkel review
Reviewer: john lauby
Used the dry snorkel and it worked flawlessly with absolutely no water getting into my mouth while diving. Super easy to clear when switching from scuba regulator to snorkel with quick short breath. The bottom purge makes it very simple to clear. Great Product. Thanx John A. Lauby

Rating: I hate sucking in saltwater
Reviewer: David Humphrey  -  View all my reviews
And I never did, to take a line from alka seltzer "oh what a relief if is". In fact this snorkel is so effective if you do not have it angled for how you are snorkeling( ie looking down or forward at an angle) you wont get air either. It is adjustable for your view angle.

I have snorkeled for years using many different snorkels. This is by far the best. Used for 2 weeks in Maui about 4 hours per day without any water getting in the snorkel. Wow!

Works as advertised. I had to relearn how to snorkel because I kept instinctively clearing it. Clearing is practically never required if kept sealed in your mouth. Love it. Free Shipping!

Rating: Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Reviewer: Michael C.  -  View all my reviews
Ordered before a warm water vacation to replace another snorkel I have dived with for some time. Upon arrival, I took the snorkel out from beach for a snorkel adventure. For whatever reason, it took the snorkel three or four submersions until it was operating as a completely "dry" snorkel. BUT for the remainder of the week during all dive excursions the snorkel acted exactly as advertised. To note...the hard plastic mask holder included with the snorkel is very uncomfortable. I removed and replaced with a neoprene holder to provide much more comfort.

Rating: great product at a great price unmatched by even discount stores
Reviewer: danny covington
I have had many other snorkels the oceanic ultra dry snorkel is by far the best. I can keep it in my mouth go threw a wave or under water and when i surface just continue breathing. Even when not in you it has water in it you can easily purge it. The adjustable snorkel keeper works great as well...All around 5 star in my eyes. You will enjoy it to.

Rating: Almost Perfect
Reviewer: Tom Shaffer  -  View all my reviews
This snorkel does a great job. The only thing that caught me off guard is that when you use it and tilt your head back to far the upper valve closes and makes it hard to get air.

Reviewer: Sherly L.  -  View all my reviews
the snorkel i was using was considered a dry snorkel, but ultimately i would have to be careful as it would suddenly close up, but had just enough water in it to choke you. oceanic ultra dry is the real deal! i have never gotten a of water in the tube. thank-you so much, oceanic!!

Rating: easy to use
Reviewer: Brian Correia
i found this product quite easy to use. at one point as i was sitting in the breakers i had gotten some crushed coral from the beach in the purge however using the purge with a mouthfull of water cleared it right out to normal working condition. i have already recommended this product to my dive buddy.

Rating: Not Ultra Dry
Reviewer: Joe C.  -  View all my reviews
This snorkel leaks after free diving and does not clear as easily as my older style which is over 10 years old. After reading all the great reviews I had to try it, but am not happy I did, maybe it is me. It is ok if you stay on the surface.

Rating: Oceanic Ultra Dry (well almost)
Reviewer: Robert C.  -  View all my reviews
I used the snorkel in Cozumel at the end of July, it works quite well, but still allows some water to get in the tube before the valve seals, so you still have to keep enough breath to "blow" the water out of the tube that is the only reason I didnt give it a 5. It is a great improvement over the old style open snorkels, looks great, and is very well made, so if there was a 4.5 out of 5 I would vote that way. Recommend this product.

Reviewer: Josh Bayer  -  View all my reviews
i just received my open water cert and has a beginner i would have to say that this snorkel is a great snorkel. it really doesnt let any water get in and if it does its just a or two. the purge valve works great so you can just blow any water out without a problem. i thought it was quite comfortable as well. great snorkel in my opinion.

Rating: Really Works
Reviewer: Wilkie C.
performs as advertised snorkel remained dry despite total submersion. on our snorkeling trp, also saw a similar snorkel made by body glove which has what appears to be the same float-valve mechanism to keep it dry, but with an added whistle near the mouthpiece- an added safety feature.

i used it when i went scuba diving and i tried it first on the shallow part of the ocean to prove if the advertisement about the product is true. i submerged several times, repositioned my head different ways to see if water will come in and to my satisfaction it is really true not even a . i will definitely recommend it to my friends.

hello. went to playa del carmen recently and snorkeled for the first time ever in different environments. snorkeled in a cenote (under water caves) and was so easy it only took around 2 minutes to get used to it. then i snorkeled in open water where ocean and fresh water meet. i would definitely recommend this product to anyone. i had no problems when waves over 1 foot would go over me. not a of water came thru.
