The kids and I love adventures. Particularly ones in the ocean. I strive to introduce them to sea life in its natural setting. In the past, this goal hasn’t exactly lined up with what happens while we are out at sea. We all suck at snorkeling and spend most of our time at the top of the water adjusting masks and swallowing sea water. That was until we were introduced to Sharklens, an affordable full face snorkel mask that offers both kids and adult sizes. Our latest snorkeling trip in Hawaii was a bonafide success thanks to Sharklens. Find out why I love Sharklens and enter to win two Sharklens full face snorkel masks of your own.
Sharklens Full Face Snorkel Mask
In the last few years, full face snorkel masks have popped up in almost every beach destination we have visited. It’s easy to see why. The masks cover your entire face making it easy to breathe normally with snorkeling. The struggle to find a mouthpiece that fits properly and is in good condition no longer exists as the Sharklens full face snorkel masks do it all. Sharklens masks provide a field of vision of up to 180 degrees. They also have an ergonomic design making them comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Finally, they come equipped with a Dry Top system that keeps water from entering the mask through the snorkel tube.
Depending on where you are the costs of similar masks can range from reasonable to extremely expensive. That’s what I love about Sharklens. For families, the masks are affordable. A full price mask costs $90 US but currently, the masks are on sale for $45 US, a 50% savings. The masks are incredibly durable and easy to pack meaning you won’t need to rebuy them every trip you take.
Sharklens Full Face Snorkel Mask for Kids
I was extremely excited to see that Sharklens offers a full face snorkel mask for kids. I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent trying to properly fit my kids in adult snorkeling gear. Usually, quality masks and snorkels are simply too big for their faces and we have to resort to less quality equipment that leaks.
From the moment I slipped the Sharklens full face snorkel on Charlie who is 6, I knew it was a quality product. Without any initial adjusting, the mask fit her comfortably and sealed perfectly to her face. Make sure to put sunscreen on your kids about 30 minutes prior to using the mask to ensure a perfect seal.
Charlie and Will both took to using the masks without any problems. I hesitated to let them dive under the water not knowing for sure that the snorkel would prevent all water from entering. It did so perfectly. In fact, I spent about 30 minutes in the ocean trying to get water through the snorkel by trying to take extremely deep breaths and nothing happened. For the first time in a very long time, I also fell back in love with snorkeling.
Measuring Kids for the Sharklens Full Face Snorkel Mask
Before ordering, you will need to measure your kids’ faces to ensure you are buying the perfect size. Sharklens provides this chart to help determine the right size mask.
For Charlie who is 6, the child size is a perfect fit. Will who is almost 9 requires a youth size mask. To purchase a youth mask on the Sharklens site, select a full face snorkel mask and in the drop down menu choose Youth.
All Sharklens masks come equipped with a space to attach a GoPro so you can capture your memories through photos and videos.
Sharklens Full Face Snorkel Mask Giveaway
I fell head over heals in love with the Sharklens masks. We picked up the masks about halfway through our last trip to Hawaii and spent much more time on the beach than expected. We were lucky to encounter two beautiful sea turtles and plenty of gorgeous fish. I seriously cannot imagine leaving home now for any place tropical without the masks. I don’t want you to either.
