Unlike swimming goggles, a snorkelling mask encloses the nose so that the wearer can "equalise" pressure on the ears when diving beneath the surface of the water. An ill-fitting snorkelling mask won't exclude water, which can be a source of annoyance during snorkelling, so it's important to try on the mask in the store before purchase. You have a good fit if you place the mask over your eyes and nose without using the straps, breathe in to create a partial vacuum and the mask stays in place without support. A snorkelling mask will enable you to see clearly under water and works much better than a pair of swimming goggles, which is only intended for surface use. A snorkelling mask will generally be more expensive, but it will also be more comfortable and effective if it has soft skirts that seal well against the skin.
