Snorkeling Masks

Snorkeling masks - otherwise called swim masks or at best snorkeling goggles - are used to view things in water. This is because human eyes do not focus clearly underwater.

Therefore, the mask enables snorkel swimmers to see below the surface while their head is in the water. You need a swim mask to go snorkeling or scuba diving.

How to Fit a Snorkel Mask

When checking a snorkeling mask for correct fitting, hold it gently against your face without securing the strap and gently inhale through your nose. If the mask does not fall off when you release your hands as you lean forward then the mask is generally a snug comfortable fit.

Snorkel Mask Lenses

Subgear Angel Snorkel Dive MaskThe glass lenses of the best snorkeling mask will be made of tempered glass. The best snorkeling brands have toughened glasses to prevent serious injury if they gets broken accidentally.

If you need a mask with corrective lenses you can either purchase separate prescription lenses to replace your standard lenses or you might prefer to buy a prescription lens mask.

The unit refractive strength of vision correcting lenses is called the diopter which can be plus or minus depending on whether you need distance or magnification correction. Snorkelling underwater while wearing prescription glasses is not possible because the mask will not fit properly over the top of your spectacles. Nonetheless, swimming with contact lenses is fine for most people.

How Swim Masks Work

The best snorkeling mask creates an air pocket between your eyes and the ocean helping you to see further and clearer. This is how snorkelers see underwater. The mask has a strap usually made of velcro or rubber. The strap safely attaches the snorkel tube at the side and secures the assembly on your head.

Cleaning New Snorkeling Masks

There is normally a protective chemical layer on the glass lenses of brand new masks. The lacquer should be removed before snorkeling to reduce fogging. Periodical scrubbing with white toothpaste also helps as a defogger if you do not have a supply of anti-fog.

Scrub the lenses inside and outside with white toothpaste or as recommended by the manufacturer. Rinse with clean water and repeat if necessary. White toothpaste is better than blue gel because it is more abrasive. Removing the chemical should ensure your new snorkeling mask stays fog-free.
