Full Face Mask - IDM Integrated Dive Mask Specialty Course


Until recently, full face masks were only used by the military and professional divers, but now recreational divers are getting in on the fun! It’s easier than you think and once you try it you won’t want to go back. No more leaking / fogging mask or jaw fatigue. You can breathe naturally through your nose and experience a wider field of vision. This is the next generation of diving!
