Rating: Tusa Hyperdry II Semi-Dry Snorkel
Reviewer: kyle love  -  View all my reviews
Mouthpiece is quite comfortable and it is constructed of high quality materials. The features of this snorkel allow you to still obtain some air if you breathe slow enough even when the snorkel is full of water, which happens more often than I like. My previous Tusa snorkel had a ballast that would cap the snorkel and prevent water from entering. I never had as many problems getting air as I do with the Hyperdry II. Great snorkel, I just prefer my old one.

Rating: i totally love this snorkel
Reviewer: Jennifer Benson
this snorkel is SO good. I had one for several years that I loved and used a lot, but when I pulled it out of storage this time, it seemed to have molded or something. So I immediately bought another of the exact same type! Still, when we were in Hawaii, I decided to give a different snorkel a try... the snorkelbob snorkel that you see the stores for in hawaii. Literally, two minutes after trying the other snorkel, I was running back to the beach to grab the TUSA. I must say though that my husband absolutely hates this snorkel... he says the flexible side makes it too difficult and creates a pulling sensation. To each his own!

I enjoyed using this snorkel in Hawaii. Fits comfortably and has no problems with water getting into the snorkel.

Rating: the greatest snorkel made
Reviewer: Cindy Galamba  -  View all my reviews
I have to admit I use my snorkel for swimming in the pool. It is wonderful. It is light weight and no water gets in. I just love it. I will never use anything else again. Highly recommended. Cindy Galamba

Rating: TUSA Hyperdry Evolution III - No BS Assesment
Reviewer: Donald A. Dutcher
THE FACTS: This snorkel is well made and looks good. The mouth piece is very comfortable and the purge valve is cleared with very little effort. It also has the shield on the tube to help keep water out of the barrel. MY TWO CENTS: I bought one of these snorkels for my girlfriend, who had never snorkelled before so of course I test & evaluated it too. It worked so well for her that I got one for my sister who was also a novice snorkeler. I liked it so much that I later bought a third one for myself. I do feel that a J-style snorkel with no purge is a better choice for those who are more serious about their snorkelling. BOTTOM LINE: If you are a casual snorkler who is going to swim around on the surface and you dont want to get a mouth full of water, give this snorkel a try.

Rating: Not "DRY"
Reviewer: Shaun Ellis  -  View all my reviews
There really cant be a "dry" snorkle, this one is ok, it takes some more effort to clear, but breaths really well, also stays up good when on surface. I would not look for another just because Im a diver not a snorkler.

Excellent snorkel. Extremely easy to clear and quick disconnect allows freedom to swivel, yet is easy to detach and re-attach. The flexible hose is the perfect length and is comfortable to bend to reach your mouth but stays out of the way when youre not using it.

Rating: Its Great
Reviewer: Carolyn S.
Ive had trouble in the past with snorkels. I have a small mouth and always got a lot of jaw fatigue. This snorkel has a great flexible neck and also swivels on the keeper. I used this snorkel on my last dive vacation where we did a lot of shore diving. It was so comfortable and dry that when I went to dive I forgot it was in my mouth and didnt exchange for my reg. Got a mouth full of water and felt quite stupid - but the snorkel is great!

Rating: Not bad, but could have done better
Reviewer: Scott Furman  -  View all my reviews
Im satisfied enough with this mask that I will keep it and continue to use it. It provides decent visibility (although not as wide a field of view as I expected or have experienced with other masks), comfort and a good seal around my face. However, if I had it to do over again, Id get a different mask, probably a 3 window mask...

    I lost the wave guard from my Tusa Hyperdry snorkel during my last dive. Do you sell such replacement part?

    We do not carry parts for the snorkels, you might want to contact the manufacturer to see if this is a warranty item. http://www.tusa.com/us-en/About_TUSA/Contact

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.

High Flow Purge
The High Flow Purge design used on TUSA snorkels offers a covered large diameter purge valve for simple, quick clearing, reducing the amount of water remaining in the mouthpiece in an instant.

Comfort Swivel
The Comfort Swivel offers a more comfortable fit since it creates no load on the mouthpiece, straightens out during diving and doesn't get in the way. The swivel adapter makes it possible to slip the mask strap into the slit with no hassles. The two-part construction allows the snorkel to rotate and can be attached in a horizontal position.
