Unlike marine animals, human eyes are not designed for underwater vision; to compensate for this a mask is worn to provide an air pocket and allow the snorkeler to see. A snorkeling mask differs from swim goggles in that it has a fully enclosed nose which adjusts for pressure changes within the water and should never be substituted for swim goggles. Before purchasing your mask you must remember that the most important aspect of a quality snorkeling mask is the fit. Also be aware that masks today come with several different style options and features; making it easy to choose the most comfortable mask for you.
