My mask keeps fogging up, Why is this and what can i do to fix the problem?

When a mask is being manufactured an oil residue is sprayed across the glass as the lenses are being cut. This prevents the glass from being scratched during manufacturing. When you take your new mask for a dive or a snorkel the lenses will fog up due to this residue.

Before using your mask for the first time, clean the inside of the mask with your everyday, basic white toothpaste. Place a globe of toothpaste, approximately the size of a 10 cent coin, in to each lens. Using your finger, rub the toothpaste over the entire lens for approximately 3-5mins, then rinse with freshwater.  This process helps to remove the fine layer of oil left on the mask.

Another way to help prevent you mask from fogging up during a dive is through the use of an Anti-Fog solution, such as Sea drops or Sea gold, which is used in similar method to toothpaste, but can be applied at the water’s edge.

 

How do I know when I am ready to complete my Advance Adventure course?

This is a very common question we get to hear at St George Underwater Center, we suggest that once you have completed your open water course take a few dive to get used to using your dive equipment and buoyancy, once you feel confident in the water we suggest taking your diving to the next level. We see lots of people who come and complete their open water course and will only dive once or twice but don’t get in the water again for a few years and sometimes never. By doing this they miss out on the amazing adventure that awaits them underwater. So if you are beginning to ask the question when is it time to complete your advance course, the answer is now.
