Both the snorkel and fins are great tools to help our way along the learning curve. The thing I think we should be careful about is not becoming dependant upon them. I have become more dependant upon the fins than the snorkel and I'm trying to shed this by always swimming the last 15 or 20 minutes of a pool visit without them (as well as for other times of the same visit). The snorkel makes breathing so easy that it provides for an ease of practice of the drills. Right Pat?
