The Oceanic Ultra Dry is a dry snorkel and a very decent one, too.
A dry snorkel will keep water from coming in through the top of the tube through a seal, while the bottom piece will release water, as soon as your head hits the water surface after a dive.
Of course, you still need to blow the remaining water out, however, it will be much less and easier to do so.
Of course, we also read other opinions online but in the end, nothing beats real world experience. So we took the time for a thorough Oceanic Ultra Dry test and review! Below you find everything you need to know, including features, specs and what we like, and don't like about it.
What We Like
- Great Splashguard
- Easy to store away
- Lots of color options
Reasons to Avoid

- Not foldable
- "Ultra-dry" mechanism takes some getting used to

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.
The Oceanic Ultra Dry snorkel is one of the best dry snorkels on the market at an affordable price.
It’s pretty affordable and looks really cool.
What I like about it most are the easily replaceable mouthpiece and the super good splashguard.
Despite its considerable size it’s easy to store away underwater.
In a typical Oceanic fashion, you have lots of color variants to choose from, so whatever style you prefer, you will find something.
It is not a foldable snorkel, which is a shame, and that brings us to the biggest disadvantage of this item…
It creates a lot of drag underwater that you would not have with a foldable option.
The ultra-dry mechanism works great but does take some getting used to. I think the same as above goes that it’s more meant for snorkelers than scuba divers coming up from a dive.
The Oceanic Ultra Dry is a great dry snorkel that works decently for scuba diving in the ocean.
