Think about everything you need to dive in—snorkeling masks, fins and snorkels.
- Mask skirts are typically made of plastic or silicone — most snorkelers and divers prefer silicone.
- Plastic: extremely inexpensive, less flexible and while still safe, less desired than silicone snorkel masks.
- Silicone: more durable than plastic, forms a better seal on the face, and has a softer, more comfortable fit.
- Lens choices include single, lens, split or two lens-masks and three-to-four lens masks.
- The main difference between snorkeling and swimming fins is length—swimming fins are shorter to ease pressure on the knees, while snorkeling fins are longer in length to help propel you forward.
- Open-foot fins are constructed with soft, rubber foot pockets for comfort. These devices enable you to wear a water boot for warmth and protection.
- Closed-foot snorkeling fins weigh less and are more flexible
- Your snorkel is how you breathe while swimming face-down in the water.
- Basic snorkels feature a simple tube with a silicone mouthpiece. It is shaped to fit the contours of the face and position the airway above the water’s surface
- Semi-dry snorkels have a valve at the top that prevents water from entering the tube.
- Dry-top snorkels completely seal out water when a diver goes beneath the surface.
Don’t let cold water hold you back—submerge in chilly waters with the help of protective diving gear and snorkeling apparel.
- Designed to be worn with open-foot snorkeling fins—open-foot fins are the common choice for colder waters since they can be paired with a pair of boots.
- Durable reinforcements on the back of the foot and heel to avoid any injuries due to hitting a stray piece of coral or a rock.
- Lined with neoprene to ensure proper insulations.
- Ideal for hands-on divers to avoid any external injury while in the water.
- Generally made of neoprene with metallic material inside for slipping the gloves on and off your hands
- Available in different sizes to fit any size hands appropriately—designed using flexible technology.
