The best things about Full Face Snorkel Masks

There are many good reasons to love full face snorkel masks. Once you try a full face snorkel mask, you'll never want to go back to a conventional mask and mouth piece again.

There's no cumbersome mouthpiece or gagging with the full face masks and their design makes it easy and natural to breathe through your nose and mouth when submerged.

If you suffer from jaw fatigue or have problems with your teeth, you'll know the pain that comes after clamping down on a mouthpiece for an hour or so. There is no jaw fatigue (or sore teeth) even after hours of snorkeling with a full-face snorkel mask.

Most well designed full face snorkel masks have a breathing chamber that is separate from the main viewing section. In most quality masks, this eliminates, or greatly reduces fogging.

The field of vision in the new full face masks is unequaled. Some people feel a little claustrophobic with traditional masks, especially with ones that have black silicone or rubber skirts. Full face snorkel masks viewing area open the underwater world right up.

Water won't enter the snorkel thanks to a ball float system inside the snorkel. The float rises inside the stop section of the snorkel as you go underwater which stops water from getting in. If any water does enter the tube, its channeled down each side of the mask to the chin area. This then drains away through a valve as soon as you lift your head above water.
