Diving with a full face mask allows you to breathe from your nose and mouth and provides added comfort in colder water. A full-face mask can also be fitted with communication gear, which can be useful for various types of specialty diving. Working divers, such as public safety divers, use full face masks because they protect the eyes and nose from contaminants in the water, provide comfort in cold water, and allow for communication. Because full face masks allow you to breathe from your nose, they are also beneficial for those who have difficulty using standard scuba masks.
