Full Face Mask Diver Full Face Mask Diver Course

The PADI Full Face Mask Diver Course

An exciting alternative to a standard SCUBA regulator and mask is a Full Face Mask! (FFM).  Using an FFM is easy, a lot of fun and offers some great advantages to a standard Scuba regulator and mask,  such as keeping saltwater out of your eyes and mouth, keeping your entire face warm during those cold dives in the spring or below the thermocline. There is no jaw fatigue or water against your face, and you can add a communications unit so that you can talk to each other during the dive.  

Aquatic World is happy to be able to offer one of most unique courses in the industry.  A PADI Distinctive Specialty, the Full Face Mask Diver Course.
