Snorkels: Your Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right One

Are you planning to go spearfishing? Then, you need to choose the right snorkel that works best for you. But with so many types and brands of snorkels available in the market, how can you choose the right one?

In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the J-Valve snorkel and the Purge Valve snorkel to help you make an informed decision.

J-Valve Snorkel

The J-Valve snorkel is a traditional, classic snorkel with a plastic tube and mouthpiece. Its simplicity makes it less affected by drag, but not having any valves allows more water to enter the tube.

This means that you’ll have to clear the water with a forceful exhale upon surfacing. The J-Valve snorkel is a great choice for spearfishing, as it is less likely to fail and can withstand rough handling.

Purge Valve Snorkel

The semi-dry Purge Valve snorkel is great for choppy waters and requires less energy than blowing the water all the way to the top. It helps save energy and provides better breathing. However, it is less streamlined, and if sand and dirt get stuck inside, it can block the airway, causing breathing difficulty.

J-Valve vs Purge Valve

Roberto Berto, a spearfisherman and freediving instructor, recommends using both a J-Valve snorkel and a Purge Valve snorkel. In this video clip, he compares the Diversworld Flow J-Valve snorkel to the Ocean Pro Typhoon Purge Valve snorkel.

He also explains why you should never keep your snorkel in your mouth while spearing or freediving. The J-Valve snorkel is ideal for deep diving and spearfishing, while the Purge Valve snorkel is great for surface snorkeling.
