Splash, Dry and Float: The Rundown
Let's take a closer look at all three types of Fourth Element Snorkels with an in-depth view of their features, highlights and the type of ocean adventurers that would benefit from these snorkels.
SPLASH: We find that this is a trendy choice for scuba divers. It has a splash guard that minimises water entry up the top and a purge valve at the bottom.
DRY: The top valve guard prevents water entry, while the purge valve at the bottom aids in clearing water from the snorkel.
FLOAT: This snorkel is great for storage as it’s super flexible. So it’s great for those who love to travel or like to take a spare snorkel on their adventures.
The Fourth Element Splash Snorkel is a semi-dry snorkel dedicated to scuba diving enthusiasts and snorkellers who are a bit more confident in the water and who want a decent snorkel.
It contains a purge valve at the bottom to drain water easily and a splash guard at the top to protect the inlet from breeze and splashes of water. A rigid design up the top that sits nicely on your face and a bendy bottom that doesn’t get in the way of your face if you’re a scuba diver and are using the regulator. It can even fold and be tucked away in a thigh pocket.
The Fourth Element Dry Snorkel is a fabulous choice for snorkelling and scuba diving for anybody looking to have as little water as possible in the tube.
As the name suggests, it’s an all-around dry snorkel with the top valve guard preventing water entry, while the purge valve at the bottom aids in clearing water from the snorkel. This system is designed to keep water out so you can breathe from it easily and without fuss.
Lots of features make it highly practical to use with an easy adjustable clip and a flexible bend at the bottom to adjust the shape to fit around your chin and face comfortably. You can also place it where it needs to be, especially beneficial for scuba divers when not in use, so it can be placed away from the diver’s face.
The Fourth Element float snorkel has been specially designed with freedivers in mind. It is a very simple design and as it says in the name, it’s a snorkel that floats, which is a cool feature. It's been made with a very flexible, bendy and soft design. Just simply a simple, J-style snorkel that’s easy to use and highly travel-friendly.
