Full face snorkel masks have always only been a viable option for professional and commercial divers. This was mostly due to the high price tag that comes with the purchase of such a mask. Thanks to modern-day technology and all the recent advancements in diving equipment and gear, some companies have been able to release entry-level versions of these masks, resulting in regular recreational divers being able to afford to buy a full face snorkel mask for travel. This read talks about its features.
With the publication of these more affordable additions to the full face snorkel mask range, many divers have made a switch, going from regular diving masks to a full face alternative to taking advantage of all the benefits these masks have to offer them.
Apart from being able to cover the diver’s entire face securely thanks to the silicon and rubber parts that touches the face, these masks also provide additional benefits that recreational divers should take into consideration when they are in doubt. By taking advantage of these benefits, divers can experience a much better dive that would also pose to be more comfortable and allow them to see much more of the underwater world than ever before.
Full face snorkel masks work similar to a regular dive mask, but also provides additional advantages. Instead of only covering a diver’s eyes and nose, and adding a regulator to their mouth, a full face mask covers the entire face and combines both a mask and a regulator to allow the diver to breathe easier and more naturally underwater. There is also no need to put a regulator into your mouth as the regulator comes integrated into the mask, giving a free flow of air within the open space.
One of the major benefits that people often consider as being the best advantage of making a switch to a full face mask is the fact that these masks give divers the ability to communicate more quickly under water. The fact that the diver does not have to add the regulator into their mouth means they can breathe and talk freely, and by integrating an underwater communications system, divers can communicate with each other, as well as with anyone else that’s on the same signal.
Full face masks are also much more secure than regular dive masks as they fit better and has several straps that go around the head. This also means that these masks are not so easy to lose as with regular dive masks.
