Ocean Reef Full Face Masks are great fun and offer divers many benefits.
Ocean Reef full face masks offer a great field of vision, they never fog up and are much easier to clear than a standard mask.
Diving in the UK and cold water, sometimes the biggest challenge is the initial putting your face into the water and getting that rush of adrenaline when the cold water hits your face. By doing your PADI Full Face Mask Course, you will be qualified to use a Full Face Mask, which eliminates the initial cold face!
This speciality is extremely useful for working divers, such as public safety divers, provides comfort for cold water diving, and allow for communication. Since you can breath through both your nose and your mouth, they are beneficial for people who have difficulty using standard scuba masks. Since it covers you entire face, it also helps eliminate jaw fatigue from having the regulator in your mouth!
To qualify as a Full Face Mask Diver you must be at least 15 years old and have your PADI Open Water Certification or equivalent.
The pool sessions are completed either at any of our pool locations, and our open water dives we are open complete over one or two days depending at Mercers Lake, or possibly on one of our club trips.
