Full Face Mask Snorkeling

Full face masks for snorkeling have been booming the, often quiet, snorkeling market.  The idea of the mask is to provide a wider, clearer view for a better snorkeling experience.  As well, without having a mouth piece – which is sometimes a turn-off for some – you are able to breathe through your nose or mouth.. whichever is more comfortable for you!  Similar to the traditional mask, the fit of the full face mask is very important.  It’s important to make sure that you get a good seal on the mask, lack of a good seal can result in carbon dioxide exhausted back into your inhalation area which can cause light-headedness, fainting and in extreme situations has led to unconsciousness and drowning.  But don’t let this scare you, as long as you are properly fitted by a professional and the mask is of higher quality – then you should be able to enjoy the ocean life that you’ve wanted to see!
