How To Spot An Octopus With Your Snorkl

So you finally have your Snorkl full face mask and you are so so ready to get out there and start exploring! One of the most popular things people try to spot is an octopus. Spotting an octopus can be hard. But there are some tricks that might help you do it next time you are out with your Snorkl mask. Follow these tips and start your exploring adventure!

Keeping An Eye Out For Motion On The Floor

They are so good at camouflaging their shape and color that movement is often a good thing to watch for. But, as you get more familiar with them, you can start to get a sense for their shape, and for what certain parts of them look like.

Know What Their Territory Looks Like

Often around an octopus's territory you will find signs of the things they have eaten, like broken shells, etc.

Watch For Large Groups Of Fish

Finally, sometimes an octopus will attract a bunch of fish, because it is hunting or feeding, and flushing out easy prey for the fish to get. So if you see an odd assortment of fish grouped around some rocks, that is often a sign of octopus or eels.

Tips To Keep Your Mask In Top Condition:

In order to best spot the octopus or whatever other sea life you are seeking to discover, it is ideal to make sure your mask is clean and properly set up. So make sure to wipe the mask with a soft eye-glass cloth before and after use.

Size chart

So you're wondering what size you might be? No worries, we got you ;)

Check out our sizing chart below.  


If you find yourself right on the fence between measurements then opt for the larger size. So for example if you are 5 feet 7 inches tall go for the L/XL mask. The main difference between sizes is the space allotted for the nose to chin area so the large the size the larger the space. 

IMPORTANT: The Snorkl for both adults and kids is meant to be utilized by strong and confident swimmers. Do not use the Snorkl if you or the person receiving it are not able to swim or just learning how.
