Snorkeling masks are designed to prevent water from getting into your eyes and nose. These snorkel masks are available in different designs, such as eye covering and a nose piece or a frameless mask covering the whole face.
The material used for making these snorkel masks is usually silicone, but PVC can also be used.
Windows allow you to see your surroundings, and they come in a wide variety. The window frame can hold a single lens, dual lens, or even lens covering the entire face depending on the design and the face sizes.
These lenses can be regular, tempered glass or scratch-resistant ones.
A snorkel is a tube through which we take our breath. These are essential, especially when you love diving deeper.
The tube usually has a valve at the top. This can be a dry valve or splash resistant one. If you like deep dives to explore the ocean floor, you definitely want a dry top valve as it seals the tube when submerged in water.
On the other hand, if you just want a casual, fun day at the beach and you plan on staying on the surface of the water, a splash-proof valve is enough to keep the water out.
A good quality snorkel has purge valves, top-dry valves, a flexible breathing tube, and a comfortable mouthpiece.
When purchasing fins, it is important to keep your shoe size in mind. Fins are for fitting and snug, so if you by mistake get a smaller size, not only will it be uncomfortable, but it will also not fit properly. At the same time, a larger fin would easily slip off.
Moreover, you should also keep in mind the length of the fins. Short fins are great for novice snorkelers and travelers, but they don’t offer much power.
Longer and more rigid full foot fins, on the other hand, offer greater power and maneuverability and are good for professionals at a higher skill level and love diving deeper for a better snorkel experience.
These snorkeling vests resemble a life jacket. They have similar purposes as in they make you buoyant. If you’re a beginner snorkeler, then using a snorkel vest will help you stay afloat so you can enjoy with your friends for a long time.
