Snorkels are bulky and not easy to stow in the diving gear. Many times they are going lost during the dive which is the reason why many divers abstain from carrying a snorkel during the dive - against their better judgement. This works until the snorkel is needed...
But if one has to wait after surfacing or has to swim for a while and the tank is empty every little wave can be a big danger!
Now it's clear how important this apparently "unessential" piece of equipment is when mouth and respiratory system is confronted by waves without any protection.
