Scuba diving allows you to see creatures and environments that don't exist anywhere else on the planet, but capturing these exhilarating scenes on camera usually means sacrificing the beauty of being immersed in the moment, a problem that the Octomask scuba masks are solving.
While the unique selling point of the Octomask products are their embedded GoPro mounts, these are first and foremost high-quality scuba masks that you can rely on for your underwater comfort and safety. Available in framed and frameless designs as well as a freediving-focused option, this trio of products boast soft silicone skirts that promise a foolproof seal and a comfortable fit for all head sizes and shapes, something that can't be said for many masks on the market and indeed most masks that divers rent from dive shops while traveling.
The mask lenses are crafted from high-quality tempered glass that combines solidity with pristine clarity, with divers able to affix prescription lenses to the Octomask. Throw in a frame that can shrug off drops and slides on shaky boats and comfortably cope with high pressure underwater, and you have quite simply a mask of the highest quality.
However, the built-in GoPro mount is what really distinguishes the Octomask as an epoch-making scuba diving mask. The camera mount is compatible with all GoPro models, which can be seamlessly and securely mounted in a matter of seconds. Once the camera's in place, just hit the record button and jump in the water, and your GoPro will do all the work for you. Given that your body tends to be horizontally positioned while diving, the bubbles emerging from your regulator will rarely if ever dance in front of the camera lens, ensuring you can capture flawless shots.
When you're 30 meters below the surface near Cocos Island or the Red Sea, you want to focus your attentions on those schooling hammerhead sharks, errant manta rays or multi-chromatic coral formations, but you also want to capture those sublime moments to share with fellow divers and the less privileged who don't venture underwater. Now, thanks to the Octomask, you can capture those sublime scenes hands-free without fiddling with framing and settings and removing yourself from the fleeting moment.
At a price of only $79.99, the Octomasks are a no-brainer for any scuba diver. These scuba masks are guaranteed to fit the majority of divers with average to large faces exceptionally well, though Octomask offers an added insurance policy in the form of free and full refunds when ordering direct from the website.
