Aqualung Aquilon P/V Snorkel
The Aqualung Aquiline P/V Snorkel falls under the Snorkels category and is available at our Dive Shop. For more info on this item of Dive Gear, please see below:
- The Air Deflector enhances the purging operation, sending water through the tube and outside the snorkel.
- The mouthpiece is fixed to the Air Deflector, which means no more rigidity in the mouthpiece base. Benefits: less jaws fatigue, more comfort.
- The position of the Twin Elliptical Purge Valve (vertical) helps the purging operation if the diver’s head is both face down or standing in a vertical position.
- 100% Anatomic Silicone mouthpiece.
- Bi-material corrugate made of a PP compound and TPR, which does not crush or deform.
- D-shaped barrel – a flat, rather than round, face sits against the skin for a better comfort.
- Polycarbonate Valve Shield with photoengraved finishing.
- Bi-material (bi-colour) splashguard with side dry chamber for a faster cleaning. The top is made of a TPR soft material which is safe and harmless.
- New fix clip with bigger section to ensure the snorkel is easy to put on and remove.
A snorkel is a breathing tube that allows a swimmer who is swimming along the surface of the water to breathe normally. Even though the swimmer’s face is just below the surface, peering down into the water.
Many divers believe that a snorkel is neither an important nor a necessary piece of safety equipment for a diver and they couldn’t be more wrong. Should any issue arise, such as having to swim a relatively far distance back to a boat or the shore should the navigation of the divers been slightly off, a snorkel allows the diver to swim both comfortably and in a more streamlined position. Should a diver not have their own snorkel they will have to continuously lift their heads in order to breathe. This will make the swim both uncomfortable and tiring.
Another huge advantage of a snorkel, is being able to jump into the water as soon as you spot dolphins without having to hunt down a snorkel on the dive boat!
Divetek carries a huge range of snorkels in a variety of colours. Our bestseller is a snorkel that conveniently folds up into the BC Pocket!
