One lens or two? Check out this infographic on how to choose the right dive mask for you

Published

on

When it comes to buying your own dive gear, a good mask is one of the most important pieces of kit to own. Since it allows you to see underwater and check your gauges, you want to get it right from the start.

Dive masks needn’t cost a fortune but there are a variety of factors to consider beyond the price tag:

  • Different mask skirt colours have different diving advantages
  • One lens or two? With single, double and multiple lens masks available it’s important to know which is right for you and why
  • Mask volume impacts how easily you might be able to clear your mask when diving
  • Some masks are better suited to travel.

You can discover more about choosing the right mask for your needs and how to ensure a perfect fit in our latest infographic:

The BiG Scuba Podcast… with Stephan Whelan

Published

on

Next in a new series of podcasts shared by our friends Gemma and Ian aka The BiG Scuba Podcast…

Ian and Gemma chat to Stephan Whelan.  Stephan is the Founder and Publisher of DeeperBlue.com. His passion for the underwater world started at 8 years-old with a try-dive in a hotel pool on holiday that soon formulated into a lifelong love affair with the oceans and led him to become one of the leading figures in the diving media industry.

Stephan got bitten by the diving bug early in life. His first scuba experience was a try-dive when he was eight years old on a family holiday in Europe, and from that moment, he was addicted. He learned to dive properly with BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) as soon as he could at school and then did his BSAC Assistant Instructor when he turned 16. By the time he was heading to university in 1996, he was hooked on teaching and diving as much as he could.

By the time he started studying at university, he decided to have a go at flexing his web-design skills by publishing some of the stories he had built up about various ‘challenging’ students and dives he had encountered, and so deeperblue.net (as it was known then) was created. He published numerous personal stories until 1998 when other writers began enquiring about contributing to the site with their tales, and it was at this moment he decided to make it more like a magazine format and began asking for volunteer helpers. He got a couple of editors on board, and plenty of writers began contributing.

DeeperBlue.com (or DB as it’s become to be known) is now one of the most-popular diving websites in the world and has grown to publish over 9,000 articles covering all sorts of topics like Freediving, Scuba Diving, Ocean Advocacy, and Diving Travel all the while keeping over half-a-million passionate divers from the diving community connected every month through the forums, large social media following, mobile app, and recently launched podcast.
