Scuba divers swimming

The best way to breathe using either a snorkel or regulator is simply in a relaxed manner with full breaths.

  1. Be cautious when you first put the regulator in your mouth, and exhale first to remove any water.
  2. Breathe deeply, slowly, and continuously to get the most out of your lung capacity.
  3. Relax as much as possible. This will conserve your breathing gas.
  4. Try not to overexert yourself while diving. Keep a relaxed pace.
