Features of the Mares Ergo Dry Snorkel

  • Ergonomically designed snorkel – perfectly fits the side of the head reducing neck strain
  • Flexible corrugated silicone hose section – designed to reduce drag
  • Universal moulded mouthpiece made from high-quality soft silicone – for greater wear and shock resistance, designed to hang down out of the way of a scuba divers regulator
  • Mares patented 100% dry top design – shuts off when you dive under the water stopping water from entering the tube so when you surface again, there is no excess water to be purged from the snorkel
  • An exhaust / purge valve in the mouthpiece – allows ease of blowing out any excess water rather than blowing it all the way up and out of the top
  • Low profile sliding swivel snorkel keeper – can be adjusted to many positions for any mask

How to Look After Your Mares Ergo Dry Snorkel

  • Wash thoroughly after every use in clean fresh warm water to prevent it from perishing
  • Do not use chemicals to clean
  • Do no leave in direct sunlight (store in a dark dry place) – this will prevent the silicone form turning a funny colour

Do I Recommend the Mares Ergo Dry Snorkel?

The design of the mouthpiece prevents discomfort, even on longer snorkel sessions and dives. The dry top design prevents unwanted entry of water from sea spray or splashes at the surface for an uninterrupted, dry breathing experience. If you do happen to get water into the snorkel, purging is quick and effective through the purge valve in the mouthpiece. 

Personally, I chose the most colourful snorkel in their range (black tube with lime accents) as I wanted the most visibility in the water when snorkelling for safety reasons.

I love my Mares Ergo Dry Snorkel and highly recommend this snorkel to anyone out there looking to buy a snorkel of their own, whether for diving or snorkelling. I have used this snorkel for extended snorkelling sessions with no discomfort and optimal performance.  It has been used extensively on our travels and it shows no signs of wear or tear.

By Peta Wenzel

We are Peta (Australian) and Jonas (Swedish/Australian), a couple in our mid 40’s / early 50’s who have been travelling the world fulltime since January 2018. We met and lived on the Gold Coast, Australia and spent many evenings researching and watching YouTube vlogs about travel and dreaming of the day we would retire and be able to enjoy a lot more travel ourselves. Over the years, a number of events happened to family and friends and an opportunity arose which made us decide to not wait but to instead take a “Gap Year”. We are now in our 3rd year of travel and still hunger for new adventures and embrace the uncertainty that comes with full-time travel. If you want to know more about who we are, why we choose this lifestyle and how we do it, please follow our adventures and see how you can do it too.
