Rating: Awesome snorkel!
Reviewer: Timothy L., - View all my reviews
These snorkels are great. Never had water in the snorkel as a result of snorkel failure. I managed to get water in my mask but that was my own fault. It was a breeze to dive and not have to worry about the water coming in the snorkel. Also didnt have to worry about the waves that sometimes hit the top of the snorkel. Awesome product overall! Highly recommend!
I am 53" -117 lb woman with limited snorkel experience. Am sailing the Caribbean in Feb 2014 and plan to spend lots of time in the water. Is this snorkel too large for me or should i purchase your mini size. TY

Hello Christina, yes this is trhe size snorkel you will need. This is the adult version of the snorkel.
ULTRA DRY Designed to be exactly what its name suggests, the ULTRA DRY snorkel incorporates Oceanic's patented Dry Snorkel Technology into an ultra-low profile product that is ergonomically designed for comfort and function.
Efficient dual exhaust valves for easy clearing Drop away flex mouthpiece Replaceable 100% liquid silicone mouthpiece
Allows you to breathe while on the surface without lifting your head out of the water.
Position the snorkel on the outside of the mask strap so it will be just forward of your left ear. Carefully lift the tab located at the bottom of the keeper slightly away from the barrel of the snorkel, and slide the keeper down over the mask strap and release the tab.
To hold the snorkel in your mouth, gently bite on the mouthpiece tabs and keep your lips sealed around the mouthpiece. While snorkeling, keep your chin slightly up so the top of the snorkel stays out of the water. Water that does enter when you dive underwater or encounter a wave can be removed by exhaling a sharp blast of air into the mouthpiece. Use caution when inhaling in case some of the water is not removed. Repeat as necessary.
If water enters more frequently than normal, ensure that the snorkel is positioned properly on the mask strap, make sure that your mouth is sealed around the mouthpiece, and make sure that the end of the snorkel is out of the water while you are swimming. Also check to ensure that there are no holes or cuts in the mouthpiece, and that the round silicone purge valve located in the bottom of the barrel is not distorted or missing and is sealing the opening.
Care & Maintenance
At the end of each day of use, rinse your snorkel thoroughly in fresh water and towel dry. Do not allow the clear silicone portions of the snorkel to come in contact with items that are black rubber. This will cause the clear silicone to become discolored. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or excessive heat. Ensure that the snorkel is completely dry before storing. Store in a cool, dry location.
