National Geographic Makes A Splash With New Snorkeler Product Line


WASHINGTON - Just in time for summer, National Geographic has joined with FAI to produce National Geographic Snorkeler™, a new line of carefully crafted snorkeling and swimming equipment for advanced, intermediate and beginner snorkelers, designed to enhance anyone’s water-related outing.

National Geographic Snorkeler provides products in three distinct series:

* Experience Series — Cost-effective equipment designed for the casual beginner, good for a trip to the beach, the pool or a Caribbean cruise.
* Explorer Series — Rugged, high-quality equipment designed for comfort; accommodates extended range and water depth, ideal for a more serious and experienced user.
* Expedition Series — Blends product features found in both the Explorer and Experience levels to create the greatest value in terms of cost and utility. Designed for occasional recreational use; can be utilized for entry-level diving activities.

Each product line is available in three packaging configurations: sets (mask, snorkel and fins); combos (mask and snorkel) and individual items (each of the pieces available separately).

“From the first broadcast of Jacques Cousteau’s undersea voyages to the current work of National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia Earle and National Geographic Fellow Enric Sala, National Geographic has a long history supporting the work of undersea explorers, so it is a natural extension of our brand to encourage others to do the same, with our new National Geographic Snorkeler line,” said Markus Hutnak, director, Licensing, for National Geographic. “Great care has been taken to consult with dive industry professionals to create each piece of equipment, which are fit and appropriately sized to the user, providing lasting comfort and a custom ’Dive-Pro Fit.’”

All masks feature CE tempered lenses, with a lightweight frame composed of Delrin™ and plastics; a flexible 3-point hold mask strap; pliable, feathered edge seal; and Ratchet Quick Lock™ strap adjustment system. Snorkel mouthpieces feature an orthodontic design, with a snorkel splash guard and wide-bore breathing tube. Fins feature soft, comfortable foot pockets available in both a closed and adjustable open heel, which may be worn with or without additional foot protection; replaceable fin straps; and a variety of blade styles to meet diverse snorkeling conditions.

The National Geographic Snorkeler environmentally friendly “Carry Bag” packaging is designed to minimize waste while maximizing utility. The carry bag can be comfortably used to carry Snorkeler equipment to and from water-based activities and is included with every set and combo package.

National Geographic Snorkeler also carries swimming and kids products, including goggles, kickboards and accessories. For more about National Geographic Snorkeler, visit
