How should a snorkel mask fit?

How do you stop a snorkel mask from leaking?

Fold the mask strap over the front of the mask to keep it out of the way. Make sure all your hair is clear from around your face where the mask will seal. Even one strand of hair can break the seal. Offer the mask up to your face to create the seal, double checking no hair is caught underneath the silicone skirt.

How do you bite down on a snorkel?

How do you seal a snorkel mask?

To get a good seal, there can’t be anything between your skin and the silicone skirt of the mask. Even just a few strands of hair is enough. An easy way to check if you are getting a good seal is to position the mask on your face with the straps just hanging and then inhale through your nose.

How deep can you dive with full face snorkel mask?

With a snorkel mask you can dive to a maximum depth of 1 to 2 meters. The reasons for this are that the mask already presses strongly against the face at shallow water depths due to the trapped air. In addition, snorkel mask wearers cannot equalize the pressure (e.g. by holding the nose shut while breathing out).
