Rating: best snorkel on the market
Reviewer: Emory Cranston  -  View all my reviews
Finally, a snorkel that doesnt pivot to far forward/backward when used, it has the best snorkel retainer yet...and can truly be called a semi-dry snorkel. I’ve tried the Sherwood, XS, and yes even the Oceanic Ultra Dry and even though they all performed well enough they all pitched too far in one direction or another causing them to leak.

Reviewer: Samuel Engelhard
Great snorkel, This was a replacement for one that I had purchased approx 10 years ago. My daughter lost it at a local pool. Never had a problem stays very dry during usage and clears of water (after a free dive)much easier than any other unit I have tried. I was very concerned that I would not find a direct replacement before going to Hawaii. Thank you Scuba.com!

Rating: Its a snorkel...
Reviewer: Eric F.  -  View all my reviews
it worked great in that i never really had to pay attention to it it let me breath for snorkeling, and just hung there for diving. comfy mouthpiece, no sharp parts. if you put the top end underwater, it will flood, otherwise it stayed dry, but really thats been true of every snorkel ive used so ive never been sure what this "dry" business is supposed to mean. maybe the baffle on top will cut down on the horseflies i seem to suck in during summer snorkeling up north!

Rating: good dry snorkel
Reviewer: gloria allman  -  View all my reviews
the tusa imprex was the first snorkel i ever used. when it wore out I didnt know where to find the same kind again, so I purchased another kind. It was a waste of money. Then I found Scuba. com and found they were offering Tusa products, I purchased it and received it just in time for my trip to the Mayan Riviera. I had a good snorkel to use again.

Rating: Great Snorkel
Reviewer: Michael D.  -  View all my reviews
Color is a perfect match to my mask and fins. Very easy to clear. The guard at the top does a good job of keeping water from waves and spray out. The only way it could be any better is if it had a valve at the top to keep water out if it goes under water while snorkeling.

Reviewer: Michael M.
No hitches or complaints at all. valve is very good and well protected and the top really helps prevent any water splashing in.

Questions and Answers for TUSA Imprex Hyperdry Snorkel:

  • Mindy:

    I have never been able to clear a snorkel that has water in it. I dont seem to have the lung power to push the valve open, and water seems to just leak in. I have tried several brands and have the same issue. Do you have any suggestions, or should I go with a snorkel that does not have a purge valve?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mindy, I would suggest the dry type snorkel for you: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-39/039507/Ocean-Quest-Pacific-Totally-Dry-Snorkel.html. As long as you keep the mouthpiece in your mouth any time water pressure comes in contact with the top of the snorkel the valve built into the top will close so not water goes down the tube. then when the water pressure is gone the valve will open.

  • Lisa:

    i am about to order the tusa imprex hyperdry snorkel in translucent (i am ordering mask in the same with blue trim), but the picture doesnt change colors when you your preference. i just want to make sure the entire snorkel is translucent, not with the black as shown. thank you, lisa

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Lisa, yes if you order the Translucent color where you see the Black in the picture it will be the Translucent.

SP-460Q - Imprex Hyperdry

The SP-460 Imprex Hyperdry snorkel has a special angled chamber at the top of the snorkel that is offset from the main barrel. This unique chamber helps prevent water from entering the main barrel while you're snorkeling by simply deflecting incoming water. If water does get into the snorkel there's an underside purge valve that lets water drain out of the barrel without entering the air intake chamber of the mouthpiece.

> Hyperdry System

> Large capacity drain chamber for easy clearing

> Ortho-consciously designed mouthpiece for ultimate comfort

> Crystal silicone flexible neck

> Color: Black (BK), Cobalt Blue (CBL), Flash Yellow (FY), Translucent (T)


Hyperdry System
The Hyperdry System keeps the main pipe dry by ejecting water through an independent escape pipe. This unique design utilizes the angle of the snorkel pipe and the resilience of the water surface to eject water.


A snorkel is used when swimming on the water’s surface while
looking beneath the water. It is not used underwater in a
submerged position. For obvious reasons, one cannot breathe
through a snorkel when it is completely submerged underwater.
The tip of the snorkel tube must always be above water
surface when in use.

You will not able to breathe if the tip of the tube is

To prevent swallowing water, always inhale slowly and exhale
forcefully when breathing during snorkeling.

Clearing the snorkel

When you dive underwater during skin diving with a snorkel in
your mouth, or when you are washed by a wave during surface,
or when the tip of snorkel sinks below the water’s surface, you will
have to clear the water from the snorkel tube.

The most common method is to blow the
water remaining in the snorkel by
blowing through the snorkel in short,
strong blasts when you are above the
water surface or when you have just
surfaced from below.

Even when the snorkel has been cleared, there is a possibility
that some water remains in the snorkel. Therefore, breathe slowly
and carefully. When water still remains in the snorkel, try blasting
the water out again.
