Rating: Ocean Quest Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel Review - $39.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Monty Irvin  -  View all my reviews
My first use of the snorkel was on a whale shark snorkel excursion and it kept flooding from the bottom on me!! I was so upset because I couldnt swim as fast as I could to keep up with the whale sharks because I kept sucking in water! I was ready to throw it away! I used it one more time on another snorkel excursion and it worked just as it should so Im not sure about it.

Reviewer: Charlie F.
The two snorkels I ordered from Scuba.Com were for a future trip to the Florida Keys in July. Well as that trip has not yet happened I cannot report on them then. But to date, I have tested the snorkels and found them to be dry. I line the flexible part with the mouth piece as it helps to relieve jaw ache. High marks for the products as well as the seller. Bothe seem to live up to all expectations.

Rating: Excellent Snorkel
Reviewer: Amber M.  -  View all my reviews
I love this snorkel. I have a hard time clearing the water in a traditional snorkel, and sometimes forget to clear it (or not have enough air left in my lungs to clear it) and get water in my mouth, For snorkeling (starting with the snorkel in my mouth) This snorkel allowed me to dive completely under the water, come up, and start breathing without getting any water in my mouth. For scuba diving, if you go under without the snorkel in your mouth, you have to clear it once to use, and then it will stay dry if you go under with it in your mouth. The water only comes in through the mouthpiece.

Rating: Works at advertised.
Reviewer: Steven B.  -  View all my reviews
Has some special function (as yet unexplored) that does keep it dry. I used for diving first and now I use it in the pool for daily swims. The attaching clip is not as "positive" as I might choose for open water but it has not come off yet in the pool.

Rating: awesome snorkel
Reviewer: Gert S.  -  View all my reviews
Im a beginner snorkeler and this snorkel helped me NOT to drink as much salt water than I expected to. That valve mechanism works great and I also liked the fact that when blowing out water after resurfacing, it blows out through a valve below in the bend rather than blowing out the water all the way through the tube.

Rating: Love the check valve
Reviewer: Scott Gigot  -  View all my reviews
I am not an experienced snorkeler but had no issues with sucking in water, even diving down as far as I could. In a weeks time I only had a little salt water in my mouth once but the purge works as designed. After extended use I found the mouthpiece rubbed on my lower gums a little bit but nothing too serious.

I lost my other snorkel. This was a replacement. Have used it in the pool. It works well and I have no problems with water entering the breathing tube while being splashed, etc. It is a very nice snorkel.

Rating: Totally dry snorkle
Reviewer: Dianne K.  -  View all my reviews
i think this snorkel has a learning curve. when i would free dive down and come up, i was unable to get all the water out of the snorkel. even though i didnt get any in my mouth, but you could hear the water gurgling in the snorkelkind of annoying. i experimented with turning my head from side to side as i would do in snorkeling and several times ended up with a mouth full of water. this snorkel works better for diving then for snorkeling if you are like me and tend to turn your head around when snorkeling.

Rating: Emphasis on DRY!!
Reviewer: Felipe Siqueira  -  View all my reviews
This snorkel does exactly what it advertises! My father is an old school professional diver and is a fan of the Sherwood open top snorkels. He told me it was non-sense to even look at another snorkel.I bought this snorkel for myself and told him to use it once and see if there was any difference. Lets just say he retired the Sherwood and bought himself one of these bad boys! Comfortable fit mouthpiece and perfect length bore, and just all around a great snorkle!

Im not a swimmer so i need the snorkle to stay dry. Not sure what happened but got some water in the snorkle and tried to clear and I ended up swallowing the ocean. Need more time to evaluate the snorkle.

Rating: Works well
Reviewer: William Hutchison  -  View all my reviews
I am impressed with this product. It seems to hold less residual water than my old fashioned snorkel. The only draw back is the rather large clip which secures to the mask strap. I found it rubbed against me head uncomfortably. That clip keeps the snorkel from sliding around, which is good, but is also difficult to open up.

Rating: Really Good!
Reviewer: Dan M.
Purchased this snorkel for my trip to Aruba, as part of a package listed on this website. Best part of the pack for sure. Very little water enters and it is very easily attached and removed. Would buy another as Otis quite comfortable also.

Rating: Nice snorkel
Reviewer: Mark B.
I havent had a chance to use this in the water yet, but from the design of the mask clip, I can say that it is better than the one I lost. The clip actually latches in place once you put it over the mask strap. I bought this snorkel because I lost one that just clipped over the mask strap and it fell off somewhere during a dive. It appears to be a sterdy built snorkel.

Rating: OQ Pacific Totally dry snorkel
Reviewer: Randall Larson  -  View all my reviews
Great snorkel and it was dry. I didnt like the connector to the mask setup. The plastic connector has slightly sharp squared edges that can rub your face if moved out of the ideal position. If you are taking off your mask from time to time in bounding water it can be irritating.
