Let’s dive into the review, shall we? Starting with the best.
1. SHARKLENS FULL FACE SNORKEL MASK
This is the best full face snorkel mask we have ever had. Performance and features are just incredible! Not to mention the price is super affordable compared to the other good quality full face snorkel masks out in the market. With just $45 you can turn your every snorkeling experience into a more enjoyable one. Check out the available sizes and colors here.
SharkLens mask works awesome in the water. We had such a great experience using this mask. The view was very wide and clear. We wanted to say that we really appreciate that the mask didn’t fog up at all for the whole time we were out. It fits snug and tight, no leaks! Diving a few feet under was comfortable because of the ball in the snorkel that prevents water from coming in when submerged. It also has a built-in GoPro mount that let us capture our whole water adventure. The only downside we think is if you are wearing a prescription glasses, then you wouldn’t be able to get the same experience we’ve had with this mask but yeah other than that.. it is a GREAT FULL FACE SNORKEL MASK!
This snorkel mask comes in 4 different colors (BLACK, BLUE, PINK, TEAL) to choose from and 3 different sizes (Adult, Youth, Child) that could fit even the youngest snorkelers out there, so the whole family could go enjoy the snorkeling adventure together.

2. H2O NINJA SNORKEL MASK
H2O Ninja Mask has similar qualities as SharkLens full face snorkel mask for the most part. When we tried it, we didn’t have any issues with water leaking or coming in the mask. The fitting was nice, and with the wide mask we were able to see pretty broad view. It worked well in the water but if you are on a really tight budget this mask isn’t for you. H2O Ninja mask costs $165 for their GoPro edition which is TWICE as much as the SharkLens Full Face Snorkel Mask which performs as good as this mask, if not better!
Another downside to this mask besides it being so PRICEY is just like the SharkLens, you can’t use it if you are wearing a prescription glasses. This mask also offers 4 different colors (BLUE, BLACK, PINK, GREEN) but only have 2 sizes option which are (S/M, L/XL). So if you are looking to buy full face snorkel for your young snorkelers, then you are much better off buying a SharkLens Snorkel Mask!
3. SEAVIEW 180° SNORKEL MASK
The Seaview 180° Mask is probably one of the innovative full face snorkel masks out in the market right now. The Seaview 180° looked good because it has a rounded shape mask which we’ve never seen in a full face snorkel mask before and for that reason we were convinced to give it a try and see how it performs in the water.
So off we go with the seaview mask, the masks fit us well, it came with built-in gopro mount so we were able to take great videos, we also didn’t have issues with leaks but there was one thing that we were really disappointed, after about 5 minutes of snorkeling we started noticing bad fogging up in the masks that we had to go back to the shore to get anti-fog spray for the mask.
This mask is good too but you need to have an anti-fog spray always ready. The Seaview 180° costs $80 which isn’t too bad compared to the H2O ninja mask. This mask do also offers 4 different colors to choose from just like SharkLens (BLACK, BLUE, TEAL, PINK) but again only 2 options for sizes same as the H2O Ninja.
All three masks are great options but if you’re looking for the best performance full face snorkel mask at the best price you gotta go with the SharkLens.
