Congratulations on your new Seaview 180° full-face snorkel purchase. Snorkeling just got easier! Seaview 180° is intended for surface snorkeling and allows you to breathe easily without lifting your head from the surface of the water. This snorkel mask is not intended for use in freediving or scuba diving. Please follow the instructions in this booklet carefully to maximize your snorkel experience and to maintain safe use of the product.
When at the snorkel location, make sure there is no sand on the mask or tube. Sand can scratch the mask and impair breathing. If there is sand, rinse using water to clear sand from the breathing tube.
Once the mask is clean and ready for use, attach the breathing tube. Make sure the breathing tube is clear of debris.
CHECKING THE SEAL
Pull the straps of the mask over your head and check the fit of the mask on your face. It should create a full seal around your face. Breath normally to check for any leaks. If you feel a slight pressure change when you breath then you have a good seal. If the mask is too loose or too tight take the mask off of your face and adjust the straps accordingly.
Please note that facial hair could prevent a proper seal and may cause leaking in the mask. For an optimal experience, shave any facial hair you may have.
Seaview 180° is designed to be used on the surface of the water rather than as a free diving mask. Once in the water, swim on the surface and breathe calmly through either your mouth or nose. Calm breathing helps prevent fogging. Keeping your chin slightly up will create the best breathing experience. If you feel any obstruction to your breathing, it may be due to the snorkel being covered in water temporarily. The dry snorkel design will prevent water from entering through the top of the snorkel. If water leaks into your mask, simply lift your head out of the water and it will drain out of the chin valve. No need to remove your mask to clear it of water.
To maximize the life of your Seaview 180°, rinse and soak with tap water using a small amount of detergent to help with cleaning. Wipe the mask down with a microfiber or non abrasive towel to prevent water spots and then allow the mask to air dry. Store the mask in the included nylon pouch and avoid exposure to direct sunlight and black rubber material as it could stain the silicone insert. Avoid leaving the mask in sandy areas when not in use.
