As you can capture all your memorable moments without holding anything. So it does not impact your enjoyment. From our own experiences and the great videos we have taken we would defiantly recommend one. so we have identified 6 of the best out there for you.
More people across the globe are getting into snorkeling. Enjoying the ocean life and getting to know what’s below the waves. So you all want to relive this experience time and again.
Why not, snorkeling is a fantastic experience. There are a couple of things that are worth thinking about before you buy a Gopro snorkel mask
Yes, It’s true that some masks are not compatible with your GoPro because they did not design according to it. It may fit but it doesn’t have the right choice for you to waste your money on that mask. Which is not compatible with the GoPro mount.
Most people did not focus on size and just buy it and they think it’s fit on their face but it doesn’t. When you buy a large mask. It may be possible that the water comes into your mount during snorkeling and you don’t enjoy your swim. So, the first thing you need to care about is the size of the snorkeling mask.
Sometimes the masks have lenses which increase the weight of the mask. If you want to buy it for kids so it doesn’t fit for them or even for you. So, always pick a lightweight snorkel mask which does not harm your snorkeling at all.
It’s very important to have a snug-fitting, clear and comfortable mask. To ensure you have the best visual experience possible. When going underwater, your mask shouldn’t leak or fog. It should stay suctioned to your face to keep water out.
What to Look for in a Mask:
Impact-resistant (tempered) glass lens rather than plastic. Plastic lenses scratch easily, while glass masks are high quality and durable
Fog-treated lens. This way your mask won’t fog up if you dive deep or experience temperature variations.
Silicon skirt. The skirt is the piece that hangs below the lens and suctions to your face. It’s best to get a mask with a silicon skirt as they create a more airtight suction than plastic skirts. Plastic skirts also rip more easily and are more likely to let water into your mask than silicon.
Okay let’s check out some options below that i think you guys will like.
