Freediving masks / diving goggles

In the world of diving, diving goggles are not just an accessory - they are your window to the underwater world! Without a mask, underwater vision is blurred. Only a layer of air between your eyes and the water allows you to see the underwater landscape clearly.

Freediving masks are small in volume compared to conventional diving goggles. They fit closer to the face and are designed for a low air volume. During the descent, the air in the mask is compressed and this volume reduction needs to be equalised by blowing air out through the nose. The smaller the volume of the mask, the less air is required for this equalisation. Valuable air, which the freediver prefers to keep in his lungs to supply his body with oxygen.

There is no universally perfect freediving mask, as the fit depends heavily on the individual face shape. It is advisable to test different models to find the optimum fit. A practical test is to press the mask lightly onto your face without breathing in. It should stay on for a few seconds. If you have a beard, you should shave a small area under your nose so that the mask seals better. Come and see me and try different types of masks!

Before use in the water, we recommend thoroughly cleaning the new freediving mask to reduce fogging. Ideally, release agent residues should be removed by running them through the dishwasher several times. A round in the dishwasher now and then will also help later if black edges have formed on the inside of the lenses.

Masks and snorkels

Freediving snorkel

A snorkel is essential if you want to be able to float on the surface of the water in a relaxed prone position and breathe freely. Freediving snorkels are often made of flexible plastic tubes and are usually made of a softer material. The mouthpiece should be flexible so that the snorkel can be worn comfortably on the left or right. Many freedivers have one ear, which is more challenging when equalising pressure. It is advisable to switch the snorkel to the other side to avoid putting additional pressure on the stressed ear. The snorkel is placed under the back of the mask strap so that it does not swing back and forth when freediving. You can throw away the plastic clips that come as standard with some snorkels: These are intended for snorkellers or SCUBA divers.

Freediving masks and snorkels are comparatively inexpensive and extremely handy, ideal for any diver who wants to be ready anytime and anywhere. Freediving masks and snorkels fit easily into your luggage and are perfect not only for diving holidays, but also for spontaneous water adventures.
