Snorkel gear – mask, snorkel, fins

Masks should be tested  for fit.  A mask fits if it can be held in place by creating a vacuum between

mask and face.  Try it on to make sure it is a good fit.  Perhaps even test it out in a pool.

Masks are available through most dive shops with prescription lenses- when you

travel all this way doesn’t it make sense to see everything?  But an old spare pair of glasses with

arms are broken off can sometimes be put into a mask.
