How does a snorkel work under water?

How deep will a snorkel work?

Unfortunately, trying to breathe underwater with a snorkel doesn’t work very well except by the water’s surface. The deepest you can snorkel is around 1.5 to 2 feet deep before it becomes impossible. There’s a reason why most snorkels are only about 12-15 inches long.

What should you not do while snorkeling?

Do not touch corals, fish or turtles. The only thing you can touch safely is sand and rock and water (that means with your fins also). Read our snorkeling etiquette page for learning how to develop skills for taking a break in the water without having to stand. Don’t use harmful sunscreen.
