The Scorkl: Coming in October

09 August 2017

Thanks to a recent Kickstarter campaign a new lightweight and compact breathing device for shallow-water dives is on its way to becoming a reality.

The device, called the Scorkl, will be available for delivery in October after a successful Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goal in just four hours.

Using the device, swimmers will be able to swim underwater for up to 10 minutes. However, the makers advise that the device is not a replacement for traditional scuba breathing devices and that beginners should stay in shallow waters (less than 3 meters) when using the device.

Users will be able to replenish the Scorkl using either a scuba tank or high pressure hand pump.

To see the device in action, watch the accompanying video.
