Rating: Ocean Quest Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel Review - $39.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
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.

I dont know what the expectation is with a "totally dry" snorkel, but to read the descriptor one would think that one would NEVER have to clear the device when snorkeling. This was not my experience. I found that I had to clear from time to time. Still, a very good product that worked well. I would buy it again

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.

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.

Questions and Answers for Ocean Quest Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel:


  • Megan:

    Loads of snorkels to choose from! What do you recommend? Beginner diver.

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Megan, Thank you for your inquiry The Ocean Quest Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel is probably the best snorkel on the market for a diver or a snorkeler. It easily attaches to the mask strap on the left side of your head and as long as the mouthpiece stays in you mouth, it will not allow water to enter the snorkel. With this feature, clearing the snorkel is not necessary. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-39/039507/Ocean-Quest-Pacific-Totally-Dry-Snorkel.html If you have other questions, need help or would like to place an order, please contact SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: info@scuba.com

  • Susan:

    My husband is a large man. About 280 lbs and a size 12 shoe. What mask and fins would fit him?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    For more specific details on sizing and fit of products please contact our instructors at 800-34SCUBA or info@scuba.com

  • joseph:

    I have the ocean quest dry snorkel, it is taking in water when I breathe, there seems to be a piece off the mouthpiece bottom. Can this be fixed? is there a part or do I need a new snorkel? thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The snorkel has a 1 year warranty protecting from defects. I'd print off the RMA form found @ http://www.scuba.com/rma.asp and send it back for repair/replacement.

  • scott:

    what is the difference between an ultra dry snorkel, a dry snorkel and a semi-dry snorkel and an average everyday snorkel? which is best and why?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Scott, the ultra dry and dry snorkel has a valve at the top of the snorkel that will not let water go down the snorkel when you have the mouthpiece in your mouth. The semi dry snorkel will divert most of the water if a wave breaks over your head to let the least amount go down the snorkel tube. As for a standard snorkel if a wave breaks over your head or you dive under the water your snorkel will fill up and you will have to purge the water out before you can breath threw it.

  • jim:

    difference between - totally dry & ultra dry snorkels ???

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jim, just the name. They are both designed to stop water going down the tube when you have the mouthpiece in your mouth. So when you come back up to the surface or the waves pass you can take a breath of air without having to purge your snorkel.

  • scott:

    Darrick: as a follow-up to previous ? re: different snorkels...if that is the case, why would anyone chose anything other than an ultra dry or dry snorkel?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Free Divers don't prefer dry snorkels as it creates a vacuum when they dive. Scuba Divers often don't care either way as they take it out of their mouth when underwater anyway, and it fills with water then.

  • kathy:

    I recently purchased a Superview Oceanways "HD" mask but did not get a snorkel with it. What snorkel would you recommed to purchase with this mask.

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Kathy, The Ocean Quest dry snorkel is a great option on snorkels. It is really nice because it keeps water from coming in through the top of it.

  • Joanne:

    Our family is going to Cayman Islands and want to snorkel. Two adults and a 25 and 1a 8 yr old. We just want to pack our own snorkel. Will rent fins and masks there. What would you suggest for beginners.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Joanne, then this would be the snorkel you are looking for. Then in the case of the 8 yrs old I would order the mini snorkel (smaller mouthpiece).

Ocean Quest offers an exciting Dry Snorkel with their Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel. Functionally designed to be the perfect all-around choice for the novice snorkeler through the most experienced scuba diver. The Dry Snorkel Technology eliminates water entry through the top of the snorkel in the event of a boat wake or a wave coming over the head, making it attractive for divers performing surface swims. It also becomes handy for the snorkeler by eliminating surprise mouthfuls of water being breathed into their lungs when they forget and dip the end of their snorkel into the water while enjoying the sights from the surface.

Designed with comfort and ease of use in mind, this snorkel uses a smooth bore silicone flex tube to help alleviate breathing resistance, and a one-way purge valve for effortless clearing. Also featured in a low profile design are a comfortable and replaceable, ergonomically curved mouthpiece, and a snorkel retainer clip. Available in a variety of colors and in a regular adult size and a youth or mini size, the Pacific Totally Dry Snorkel is an attractive and economical choice for the diver who values performance and price.
