Cressi's new advanced Itaca Ultra Dry Snorkel features an internationally patented dry guard top piece, to help prevent water entry while snorkelling on the surface in any position. This new mechanical device has three moveable joints, whose counterweight ensures immediate opening of the upper valve whether you dive or emerge from the water.
The lower part of the Itaca Ultra Dry Snorkel has a corrugated flexible section, with smooth interior to help ensure a more natural breathing experience without resistance. This flexible section also ensures the lower mouthpiece/purge valve area can be more better positioned and be more comfortable in the mouth and hangs out of the way when not in use. The compact, soft silicone mouthpiece has a reduced bite size and is also angled to help reduce possible jaw fatigue when in use. The lower mouthpiece section consists of two pieces, with an inclination that ensures better and faster water drainage. The enclosed lower purge valve enables instant clearing when needed.
The elliptical shape of the snorkel tube; the mouthpiece angled for comfort in the mouth; the bottom section including the purge valve angled for improved drainage; all these features combine to encourage optimal positioning and comfort when in use. The Cressi Itaca Ultra Dry snorkel is designed specifically to be worn on the Left hand side of the mask/face (as are the majority of snorkels).
