What are the Benefits of Diving with a Full Face Mask?

Diving with a full face mask offers several advantages over traditional masks. Firstly, the panoramic view provided by a full face mask allows divers to see more of their surroundings, enhancing their overall diving experience. Additionally, the built-in regulator eliminates the need for a separate mouthpiece which some divers find uncomfortable. Furthermore, the natural breathing pattern facilitated by a full face mask reduces the risk of experiencing discomfort or anxiety underwater, making diving a more enjoyable and relaxing activity.

How Do I Choose the Right Full Face Mask?

When choosing a full face mask, it is essential to consider factors such as fit, visibility, and comfort. Look for a mask that has adjustable straps and a soft silicone skirt, as these features ensure a secure and comfortable fit. Additionally, opt for a mask with a wide field of view and anti-fog technology to enhance visibility underwater. It is also worth considering the weight and size of the mask, as a lightweight and compact design can make it easier to travel with. Lastly, read reviews and seek recommendations from experienced divers to ensure you choose a reputable brand and model.

Are Full Face Masks Suitable for Newly Qualified Divers?

Full face masks can be suitable for newly qualified divers with proper training and certification before using one. While full face masks offer many benefits, they also require a different set of skills compared to traditional masks. It is important to learn how to properly clear the mask, equalise pressure, and handle emergency situations specific to full face masks. By taking a diving course that includes training on full face masks, divers can safely and confidently explore the underwater world.
