What a great product at such a reasonable price! Im a first time buyer, but needed a mask with prescription lens. Not only were the prescription lens accurrate, but the mask fits well with great peripheral visibility. It also arrived much sooner than I had expected. Thanks again, Ill be back!

Rating: I can see the fish!
Reviewer: Julianne N.
I purchased this mask with RX lenses. While Ive snorkeled for many years for the past 10 years Ive had to wear RX lenses for seeing more than 2 feet or so away so didnt really enjoy snorkeling as much. What thrill to use this new mask for the first time in Bonaire. I was able to see fish and coral so clearly. It made me much more comfortable in the water knowing I could see a bit further. I really like the 4 windows, I like having some peripheral vision while snorkeling. I would definately recommend this mask and Scuba.com.

Rating: Pleased with it
Reviewer: Steven B.  -  View all my reviews
i ordered this to put some bifocals in and was having trouble with the standard styles hitting my brow. this one has a bit more skirt depth over the eyes and clears the browline better. it is quite heavy but i especially appreciate the std. strap connections as i ped and broke one but replaced it with some parts i had laying around.

Rating: I love this mask!!!
Reviewer: Johnny W.
i bought the mask and got optical s so i can see more than 3 inches beyond my face. the mask works well but im still getting used to wearing a mask again, so i am having trouble sealing it. thats an operator error, not a product defect. i have fresh water snorkeled in a lake and a river since i bought the mask. watching the darters, bass, and chubs in their habitat never gets old! i love the side windows that let in lots of light, too.

Rating: Problems Clearing
Reviewer: Michael C.
The mask works well. however the nose piece forms a seal between my nose and the right eye cavity. That prevents the water in the right side of the mask from getting to the purge valve. This makes it very diffcult to clear the entire mask if its fully flooded. Besides that it is a pretty good mask for the money.

Questions and Answers for H2O Alpha 4 Mask:


  • STEVE:

    I AM LOOKING AT THE H20 ALPHA 4 MASK. I BELIEVE IT IS ABLE TO HANDLE PERSCRIPTION LENSES, HOWEVER I DONT SEE AN OPTION FOR IT. THE REVIEWS FROM OTHERS INDICATE THAT IS IS POSSIBLE... HOW WOULD I GO ABOUT ADDING PERSCRIPTION LENSES TO THIS MASK ORDER? WHAT WOULD THE PRICE BE WITH PERSCRITION LENSES IN IT? THANKS IN ADVANCE STEVE

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Steve, you can give us a call at 1.800.347.2822 and we can help you place this order. Or just add that mask to your cart then go to the H2O Alpha 2 mask in the optical lens page and right below that will be the correct lens you would need to order for this mask. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to contact us at the number above.

  • Mark:

    If I get a mask with negative diopeters and positive bifocal, does the bifocal reduce the negative diopeters? For instance I need -4.5 for vision, but for close up I need only -1.5. Would I order -4.5 diopeters and bifocal of +3? Or would I need to order -4.5 diopeters and bifocal of -1.5? Thank you, Mark Breton

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    We can only correct for one. Either a bifocal (correction only on the bottom of the lens) or distance (correction on the full lens). The two cannot be combined.

  • Nancy:

    My husband has a snorkel mask with nose breather allowing him to breathe out through the nose. Do you have such a product or know where he can get one? Thank you

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Nancy, Thank you for your inquiry! They type of mask your are referring to is call a “Purge Mask”. This style of mask allows a snorkeler or a diver to “clear a mask” without having to lift their face out of the water. All he does is inhale through his snorkel, press his hand firmly of the mask and exhale through his nose. This action allows the air to push the water out the 1 way valve or purge. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-52/Masks-Masks-w--Purge.html If you have other questions, need help or would like to place an order, please contact one of our Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: info@scuba.com

  • Bill:

    I am trying to decide between the XS Fusion and the H20 Alpha 4 mask. I am 165 lbs, avg to large face and a prominent nose, no facial hair. In the past, water accumulates in the nose pocket which I constantly snort - very irritating. I am inclined to order with a purge valve but I am concerned it will rub against the bottom of my nose. Your thoughts are most welcome.

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Bill, Thank you for your inquiry! H2O Alpha 4 Scuba Dive Mask is an excellent choice. Having a purge will help and it should not effect you nose in any way, even with the purge. You might also try applying a little vegetable based silicone (food grade), to your upper lip. That should help with water seeping into the mask. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-52/029355/H2O-Alpha-4-Mask.html If you would like to place an order or have questions about our products, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: info@scuba.com

  • Sarah:

    Hi, I require prescription lenses to see but also require either a bifocal or no correction to see up close...this H2O mask has side windows! Is is possible to see out the side windows and are they corrected as well? It would be great to be able to read my computer through the side windows and still see in the distance. Thanks, Sarah

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The side windows would have no correction to them.
