Snorkel Pros, Cons and Solutions

Why do divers carry a snorkel? Don’t they have air already?!

If you’re not a SCUBA diver this is an understandable question. Why would we have a snorkel if we’re already carrying air in a cylinder on our backs?

And, if you are a diver do you ever ask yourself this question or have you ever left your snorkel in your dive bag (you don’t have to admit it out loud… just let the voice in your head do the talking).

The answer to the first question is, of course, we do have air but there are some good reasons for carrying a snorkel as a SCUBA diver and some problems as well.

Hey Dive Buddies!

I’ve implemented a new dedicated page for the Dive Site Orientation Series. The Homestead Crater edition is currently posted for everyone to take a look at and comment.

I’m also testing Wistia as a video content provider instead of YouTube or Vimeo. I’d appreciate hearing any thoughts on the user experience!

Check out that new page here (or click the pic) and let me know what you think!
