March 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #117: Flooded Snorkel and Mask

Tip of the Week

From time to time, water may leak into your mask or into your snorkel. This can be a little unsettling the first time it happens, but it is easily fixed.

Wearing a mask that fits well should keep most water out, but small amounts of water could still seep in. If this happens, donít panic. Simply lift up your head and push on the top of the mask, or gently pull the bottom of the mask away from your face, so the water runs out.

Unless you are snorkeling in a perfectly still environment, water will undoubtedly get into your snorkel. When this happens, blow forcefully through the snorkel to remove the water. Proceed to inhale carefully, in case there is any water remaining inside the snorkel.
