Buying Snorkel And Swimming Goggles; No Dive Mask
I saw your website with regards to a Snorkel tube. Is it possible just to buy the snorkel tube and then attach it to my regular swimming goggles to do my snorkeling in lake or in beach?
I don't snorkel that much and want to save some money. So instead of buying the whole snorkel set with mask, can I just buy the snorkel tube?
Would this work when I snorkel? What kind of problem would I encounter? I'll be happy to hear your feedback. Thank you for your info, appreciated.
Thanks for the question on the snorkel. I will preface this by saying that when I use my swimming goggles to swim, I do not use a snorkel. If am snorkeling, I use my dive mask and snorkel. The following is just my opinion on what I think it would be like.
You do not have to buy the whole mask and snorkel set. You can just buy a snorkel by itself. It should attach to your swimming goggles with no problem.
The only problem I could foresee is that the strap on the swimming goggles is much smaller than the strap on a snorkeling mask. This might make the snorkel have a tendency to move back on the strap.
However, that being said, I think with the pressure of you biting down on the mouthpiece of the snorkel, it should be able to hold the snorkel pretty much in place. Overall, I think you would be OK to snorkel with the swimming goggles and snorkel.

Please let us know how you made out. I would love to hear.
