Prescription snorkel mask recommendation?


Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to pose this question, but since there are at least three snorkel questions on the first page of this forum, I figured this might be a good place to try.


Does anyone have any recommendations for prescription snorkel masks that they have used? I need to get one for myself and my daughter for our cruise in August.


We are both nearsighted. My prescription is pretty strong (something like -8 or -9) but hers isn't nearly as bad...she could probably get by without one, but I know that I cannot. I see several options on Amazon, but didn't know if anyone had a prescription mask that they either loved or one to stay away from. Our cruise has 5 different ports, so we do want to be able to at least see some of what is there. :D


We don't wear contacts.

a mask is all about fit


I would not invest in a mask I had not tried on


masks come in a bunch of shapes and sizes


as do heads . . .


a visit to a decent dive shop is your best plan


been an active diver since 1974
