If asked “why do you dive in an Ocean Reef Full Face Mask”, probably the best answer is “why not”?
Become one of the SMART few! Bring your skills to a new level with an Integrated Dive Mask (IDM). This course provides divers with knowledge and safety skills. It covers both the technical and practical sides of using an IDM necessary to be a competent IDM diver. The course allows IDM divers to become familiar and feel comfortable with the full face system. You will participate in an orientation of the full face mask and complete skills in confined water. Once you have mastered the skills, you will complete a dive with the IDM and demonstrate skills in deeper water. This art of diving offers not only comfort but a great view and a natural way of breathing.
