Does anyone here know if you use a snorkel, but not any fins, if it burns alot less calories than just freestyling? Yesterday I went a mile using a snorkel...but I have not mastered breathing without one and cannot go nearly as far. Just wondering if anyone here swims at all and can answer.

There MIGHT be minute difference, but I doubt if it would be enough to make any appreciable difference. If you haven't got the breathing down, go for it and use the snorkel. The fins would make a difference if going for distance, but no real difference if going by time.
