Breathe easy with Scorkl
The best time to snorkel in Omani waters is summer. Many people find it hard to use a lot of traditional snorkelling equipment, and for them the Scorkl Underwater Breathing Device is a real boon. The device provides you with a full 10 minutes of underwater breathing time.
The gadget can be activated with a simple pump. The instructions are pretty straightforward, place it in your mouth and hold the device with your hand.
Buy it from Gadget Flow for RO78.
