  • What if I need a corrective lens dive mask?

Unfortunately the dive centre doesn’t stock corrective lens masks, so we ask all divers needing those to bring their own and if not contact lenses are a good option.

Note though please that if you are travelling by plane it is highly recommended that you pack your corrective lens masks in your hand luggage.
