• Full Face Mask Diver

Full Face Mask Diver

Divers often have a need, or want, to effectively communicate underwater. The SDI Full Face Mask Course is the perfect starting point. Full face mask diving allows the diver to relax and enjoy diving while not worrying about maintaining the second stage regulator. In addition, the full face mask will help insulate the diver from a coldwater environment.


What exactly is a Full Face Mask?

Well, the simple answer is it is a diving mask that integrates a 2nd stage regulator into it and covers the diver’s entire face. From there, what dictates what Full Face Mask is right for you depends on your needs and wants as a diver. There are many options available, however the two most widely used Full Face Masks on the market are the OTS Guardian Full Face Mask and OTS Spectrum Full Face Masks.

Why would I want to dive a Full Face Mask?

Any diving in water that might be detrimental to a diver’s health is potentially alleviated. Combined with a proper drysuit, dry gloves and an attached latex hood, a diver can be afforded an extra level of protection from cold and/or contaminated water.

Traditional bite mouthpiece regulators offer little to no protection if a diver goes unconscious underwater. The Guardian and Spectrum Full Face Masks provides a breathable airspace, secured to the diver’s face that can afford an opportunity of survival.

Underwater Communications
Because our Full Face Masks have an “oral / nasal” pocket, a microphone can be mounted into the mask. This allows a diver to be able to articulate without interference from a mouthpiece. The Guardian and Spectrum have PTT buttons located on the right jaw of the mask.

The Experience
Many find that diving a Full Face Mask is the next step of evolution in diving. The advantages are numerous including: ability to breathe through nose throughout dive, keeping a diver’s face warm and dry and the ability to communicate with other divers.

Course prerequisites:

  • SDI Open Water Scuba Diver, or equivalent
  • Minimum age 18, 15 with parental consent
  • Complete the Medical Questionnaire*


*Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a medical professional before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Medical Questionnaire to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before starting your scuba course. Instructors, Divemasters and the staff at Motor City Scuba are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
