Default Snorkeling and eyeglasses

Hi

Would love to experience snuba or snorkeling in Belize. But what about us who wear eyeglasses. Will this be impossible?

The mask will not fit tightly over your eyes and nose if you wear them over eye glasses, therefore, it will not be water tight. I wear glasses but still enjoy snorkeling, it's just tough getting in and out of the snorkel boat without my glasses on. If I snorkel from a beach, it's a little easier to find my way back. Don't let it stop you from enjoying snorkeling.

Just in case you are thinking about using contact lenses, they do work great with snorkeling, something to consider??

Hi!
I wear glasses and it is o.k. for snuba. If you like very much to snorkel,
you can buy a mask and have your Rx made in it for a 100$.it works well.
Good luck Mateli

On most good snorkel excursions they offer masks that can come close to your prescrition--works well!
