  • Avoid diving face-first into the water while wearing a mask to prevent potential injuries from the mask's impact with the water.
  • Keep all mask lens materials (tempered glass, Polycarbonate, Cellulose Acetate) away from high heat and harsh chemicals to prevent deformation or weakening.
  • Be aware that lenses can break or deform due to impact, excessive heat, or misuse, similar to how tempered glass used in car windshields can crack or shatter.

Masks with Polycarbonate (PC) or Cellulose Acetate (CA) Lenses:

  • While minor scratches on PC and CA lenses are typically not visible underwater, users should be cautious of lens breakage or deformation due to impact, excessive heat, or misuse.
  • Users are advised to handle these lenses carefully to maintain their safety and effectiveness.

Types of Fins

There are two general types - FULL FOOT and OPEN HEEL, each with different benefits based on design and use

Full Foot Fins

  • Fit is critical as they are held by the snugness of the footpocket.
  • Should be snug but not too tight to avoid discomfort or cramping.

Safety Guidelines for Fins

  • Avoid walking normally in fins as it can lead to tripping and falling. Shuffle sideways or move backwards.
  • Be extra cautious on boats or in surf to avoid falling due to water movement.

Pre- and During Snorkeling Care:

  • Check the one-way purge valve for proper positioning.
  • Ensure the DRY TOP snorkel's mechanism is moving freely and clear of debris.
  • Avoid using the snorkel if the mechanism is not functioning properly to prevent discomfort or injury.

Post-Snorkeling Care:

  • Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before storing.

Storage and Chemicals:

  • Store in a cool, dry, and sheltered location away from direct sunlight.
  • Avoid exposure to alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
  • Do not use alcohol, solvent, or petroleum-based substances for cleaning or lubrication, and store equipment away from these substances.

*Completing a snorkeling course is recommended for all users, regardless of the specific product used, to receive additional instruction and safety tips. This education is beneficial for enhancing overall safety and proper usage of scuba and snorkeling equipment.
