I purchased four snorkels for my family early in March as we were going to Maui to snorkel the last week in March. We were not interested in renting used equipment for the week. I figured that the cost to rent for four for a little over a week would pay for ½ the cost to buy your own new equipment. I purchased masks and snorkels at Divers Supply. All four snorkels performed flawlessly for hours at a time and several days in a row which allowed us to focus on the tropical fish, turtles and underwater environment we were observing. In Molokini in the afternoon the water get a little rough and when a wave contact my snorkel it briefly closed and I resumed my normal breathing. I did not have water enter the snorkel at the mouth piece anytime. Upon return I will be maintaining them before storage to ensure future performance. For the price and performance it is a great value.

Buy this one!
Just returned from the Bahamas. My son and I were in a sail boat scuba diving everyday at least twice, for a week. This thing works so well, it is fantastic. We use it all the time to save air while waiting for other scouts to join us in the water. You do need to make sure that it is oriented correctly or it will not open at all. Once you understand this, it is bullet proof. Might buy more for my wife and daughter.
Just Buy It!
Just got back from Grand Cayman. This is an awesome snorkel - No hype here. Best investment I have made to increase the enjoyment of snorkeling. Got one for my wife and daughter too. They fully agree. We couldn't make it leak.

This snorkel keeps to its promise of "Dry". No complains.
Sea Elite Dry Snorkel
Great snorkel, Stays Dry, Flex tube hangs out of the way, even has purge valve which I have never needed.
