Oceanic Blast Snorkel Review

Oceanic released this snorkel a while ago and it is very simplistic in its design, the attachment clip to the mask is robust and easy to clip on and off the mask. The great thing about it is that as a spare snorkel it folds up easily and can be squeezed into a pocket. They have recently replaced it with the Enzo snorkel but it is the same thing with a black end piece and new name.

Now to be fair it isn’t anything special, just a tube with mouth piece connected and shaped as can be seen to fit round the side of your head; yet that is the beauty of a snorkel as sometimes trying to be something it isn’t makes things over complicated. The Oceanic Blast Snorkel does exactly what it is meant to, be a breathing tube when you are on the surface and unlike many others if you do purchase one of these at less than £7 (approx US$10-15) it will be perfect as either your main snorkel or a back up.

There is no guard to stop water getting in the top (most of these never work properly anyway) and no clearing valve at the base, it is an ideal and cheap first snorkel and is made out of such a tough material that it should last you till you decide to give up diving.
