Snorkelling Masks


Your snorkelling mask is your window to the underwater world. Often snorkelling masks are made of inferior materials like silitex. Those listed here are all tempered glass lenses and have hypo-allergenic silicone skirts. You can rest assured that The Scuba Doctor only sells top quality silicone snorkeling masks. You will see single, double, triple and even four lens available in a range of colours. Please check out the great range we have for you to choose from.

Prescription/Corrective Lens Snorkelling Masks: — Eager to try snorkelling, but feel worried about the practicality of it because of your eyesight? If you wear glasses and need some assistance seeing clearly when snorkelling, The Scuba Doctor is Australia's largest supplier of Prescription Lens Masks.

Child and Junior Sized Snorkelling Masks: — Please look at our Kids' Corner.

Mask Sizes: — Masks are usually sold as being one size fits all faces. All masks differ in size depending on brand and style within the brand and thus some will achieve a better fit on your face than others. The main variable in this sizing is your head size and face shape. As this is so individual to every person we cannot offer any guaranteed sizing advise. However, in the mask descriptions we have tried to indicate if each mask is more suited to petite, small, medium or large faces. But there are no easy rules to follow. Sometimes a mask that seems more suited to a small face works well on a big face. Generally, the more expensive masks have better quality mask skirts and better quality skirts seal on a wider range of face sizes.

How to Quickly Check a Scuba Mask for Fit: — The best thing to do is try the mask on your face and check how well it seals. For details about how to do this properly, please read our Buyers Guide: Buying a Great Dive Mask.

Technical Tip

Why Black Skirt Diving and Snorkelling Masks Are Better

Clear skirts on diving and snorkelling masks are popular because they minimise the claustrophobic feeling some people get when they wear a mask. Nevertheless, clear skirts actually interfere with vision. Extraneous light entering through the clear skirt makes it more difficult for the eye to focus and causes reflections that obscure vision. Demonstrate this by looking out a window from a lighted room at twilight. You will see better by cupping your hands around your eyes as you press your face to the window. For these reasons, knowledgeable divers and snorkellers seeking the best possible vision prefer masks with black skirts.

Note: Diving/snorkelling masks are very different to Swimming Goggles. See Goggles vs Masks.

Gunditjmara country
Gunditjmara country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Gunditjmara people of far south-western Victoria which continues over the state border into a small part of south-east South Australia and is bordered by the Glenelg River to the west and the Wannon River in the north. This truly ancient Country extends 100 metres out to sea from low tide and also includes Deen Maar (aka Lady Julia Percy Island) where the Gunditjmara believe the spirits of their dead travel to wait to be reborn. We wish to acknowledge the Gunditjmara as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
