And not only an angel, although the lyre-tailed angel is a very pretty fish. In fact, with just a mask and a snorkel, you can see and film mandarin fish, clown fish, and other bright inhabitants of the underwater world. You may even see a stingray. And if you are lucky enough to get to our underwater beauties, say, in Kamchatka, then a less colorful, but even more amazing world of crabs, octopuses, sea otters and sea urchins awaits you. A stingray will seem like a child’s toy compared to a humpback whale.
Manufacturers of equipment for snorkeling (i.e. snorkelling) have long figured out how to make this activity more comfortable. With full face masks, you no longer need to think about where the snorkel mouth is, worry about water getting into your nose or mouth. And the ability to attach a camera to the mask brought video shooting to a new level. In addition, there are many types of masks on the market.
Classic basic full face mask Available in two colors — blue and white and black. This is a great option for beginners in the exploration of the underwater world and for those who prefer calm snorkeling.
Its shape provides a wide view — 180 degrees, the porthole (transparent part) is made of durable and lightweight plastic, and the obturator (the part that adjoins the face) is made of soft and dense silicone.
The tube is attached directly to the mask body from above, while the mask covers the entire face, and fits snugly, creating an air-filled space inside. Therefore, while snorkeling, you can breathe through both your mouth and nose. To prevent water from entering the tube, the mask is equipped with a special valve. The fabric elastic strap holds the mask well, does not get tangled in the hair — it is easy to take off and put on.
Another modification of such a mask is a model with a folding tube.. This is convenient, you will not forget it at the hotel and will not lose it on the beach or in the sea. The mask is presented in a white-orange color made of transparent plastic and provides excellent visibility.
Another one An interesting model of the mask differs from the basic one in that it is made of dark plastic with a stylish carbon print printed on it.. This print is very durable and will not fade in the bright sun. The porthole of the mask is darkened, which makes the image of the underwater world brighter and more contrast, allowing you to see even minor details. In addition, such a mask will protect your eyes and face from the aggressive effects of ultraviolet radiation.
Model with two tubes will make your snorkeling even more comfortable — more air enters such a mask and you can breathe more freely in it. The tubes are removable and their angle of inclination can be adjusted. The mask is blue and white.
It is worth noting that, unlike a regular swimming mask, size is important for a full-face mask and, if it is not chosen correctly, it will not fit snugly against the skin and will let water through. Therefore, all masks are presented in two sizes S/M and L/XL. Some models of masks have silicone straps or straps with clips to make them easy to put on and take off. All masks are equipped with a special mount for a GoPro camera.
Snorkeling is a great and affordable way to get to know the underwater world and its inhabitants. A good inventory will make it even more pleasant and convenient. Let it be no problem to find photos and movies with beautiful fish now, watching your own will bring you much more pleasure. Moreover, you can always brag that you still managed to photograph an angel, and the tail turned out especially well.
