5 Must-have Snorkelling Accessories for a Thrilling Underwater Adventure

by Mihai Pinzariu on August 04, 2021

Snorkelling is one of the most exciting adventures you could ever experience. If you’re keen on exploring the underwater world with its vibrant marine life and extraordinary coral reefs, you need to be prepared with the best snorkelling gear and accessories.

To help you be all set to experience the wonders of the ocean, we’ve made a list of 5 must-have snorkelling accessories for a thrilling underwater adventure. This list contains essential snorkelling gear and accessories that are indispensable both for beginners and more advanced snorkelers alike.

Read on and follow our snorkelling gear & accessories recommendations for a safe, comfortable and unforgettable snorkelling experience!

If you could only pick 5 snorkelling accessories for your underwater adventure, we’d suggest you’d consider these:

1. Snorkelling mask

Snorkelling without a snorkelling mask is impossible, so this should definitely be the number one item on your must-have snorkelling accessories. Depending on your preferences, you could either choose a dry snorkel set consisting of a dive mask (goggles with nose cover) paired with a snorkel tube or you could go for a full face snorkelling mask.

The difference between these two types of snorkelling masks is that, in general, a full-face snorkelling mask is easier and more comfortable to use because it allows you to breathe naturally through your mouth and nose.

Full face-snorkelling masks are excellent if you want to teach your kid how to swim and to be confident in the water. You can check out our Ninja Shark full-face snorkelling masks for kids here to discover why they are so loved by thousands of brave little explorers.

In opposition, the dry snorkel set might prove a bit more difficult to use as you can only breathe through your mouth, which requires you to practise some breathing techniques before you start your underwater adventure. The mouthpiece is often found to be really uncomfortable for some snorkelers, causing jaw fatigue and making the snorkelling experience less enjoyable.

When it comes to choosing the best snorkelling mask, you’ll have to consider your snorkelling experience and personal preferences. We would recommend trying a full-face snorkelling mask for a comfortable and safe snorkelling experience.

Our most advanced model, the Equaliser Pro full-face snorkelling mask is equipped with a Tri-top dry system and has three chambers (one extra than all other masks on the market) and four intake unidirectional valves that let air circulate in and out freely, allowing more fresh air and no CO2 buildup.

2. Snorkelling fins

Snorkelling fins are great accessories that help you move quicker and more naturally in the water. You can snorkel without snorkelling fins but you’ll be missing out. A trusty pair of snorkelling fins will help you snorkel smoother, reducing fatigue and cramps.

Snorkelling fins are pretty comfy and, in general, it takes very little to get used to them. Your movements in the water will be more fluid thanks to the snorkelling fins. They’re especially great if you want to swim longer distances. You’ll feel less tired as they’re designed to create less water resistance when you kick.

If you want to dive to have a closer look at some marvellous turtle or coral, you will benefit a lot from the speed and range of movement the snorkelling fins will provide. We recommend using a good pair of snorkelling fins to increase your movement efficiency in the water and enhance your snorkelling experience.

3. Waterproof dry bag

The waterproof dry bag made its way on our top 5 must-have snorkelling accessories because of its amazing usefulness and versatility. This lightweight and easy-to-carry backpack will help you safely transport and store your snorkelling gear and personal items everytime you go snorkelling.

Given its versatility, a waterproof dry bag is perfect not only for your snorkelling adventures but also for all of your hikes, day trips and other outdoor activities as it will keep all your personal items protected from water, sand, dirt and dust.

The Ninja Shark waterproof dry bag is made from a soft and flexible material that is strong and resistant to harsh environments. Whether you’re relaxing at the beach or exploring the vast wilderness, the dry bag will ensure all your items are safe from whatever nature has to throw at you.

Roomy but without being bulky, the Ninja Shark waterproof dry bag is the ideal accessory for all your adventures. Its handy size and light weight make it a kids’ favourite as well.

4. Underwater camera

The ocean is a magical place, a lush and vibrant underwater paradise inhabited by the most extraordinary marine creatures. As you snorkel you will feel the ultimate freedom and joy and get a glimpse of the magical life in the ocean.

An underwater camera is a must-have snorkelling accessory if you want to capture your snorkelling adventures and wonderful encounters with marine life. With an underwater camera, you can record and photograph the most amazing scenes you will witness on your snorkelling adventures.

The Ninja Shark underwater action camera can be used at up to 30m underwater (with its waterproof case) and allows you to record 4K Ultra HD videos and 12 MP photos of your most memorable snorkelling experiences so that you can relive them later. The 170° wide-angle lens will enhance images and videos with background details for the most spectacular results.

You can quickly share your snorkelling videos and photos for the world to see - all you need to do is download the camera app on your smartphone or tablet and use the WiFi image transfer function to download and share your photos on social media.

Given its compact size and powerful capabilities, the Ninja Shark underwater action camera is ideal for capturing great videos regardless of the sport you practice: snorkelling, surfing, skiing, diving, etc.


5. Lens support for full-face snorkelling masks

This last item on our list of 5 must-have snorkelling accessories for a thrilling underwater adventure is one of the latest innovations in snorkelling gear. The Ninja Shark lens support for full-face snorkelling masks is specially designed to offer people who wear glasses a safe and amazing snorkelling experience.

This optical lens support is like a pair of glasses that can be fitted into the Ninja Shark full-face snorkelling masks. Once attached and paired with the generic optical lenses that closely match your prescription you’ll be able to enjoy crystal-clear views underwater.

If wearing glasses has prevented you from enjoying snorkelling because you couldn’t see clearly, this unique accessory can change that. With the Ninja Shark lens support for full-face snorkelling masks you’ll be able to explore the underwater world without any impediment.



The Ninja Shark full face snorkel masks makes your experiences the best they can be. They are exclusively sold on the Ninja Shark website.

The Ninja Shark full face snorkel masks comes equipped with advanced Anti-Fog technology, automatic drainage, no CO2 Buildup with improved uni-directional valves, and a revolutionary breathe flow system so you can breathe through both your nose and mouth.

“If you thought we’re just here to sell you products, think again. You’re part of the Ninja Shark family, and your feedback matters! We’re constantly working to improve our products and deliver the full face snorkel mask that exists only in our dreams!”

What customers are saying about us…

“Awesome set.

Loved the complete set. I even used the waterproof phone pouch to take photos and videos underwater. It made my Fiji experience so much better than using the free snorkel set that hurt your face after 2hours and leaving a sun/mask mark. The ninja leaves no marks and gives great vision under water in comparison. It did take some getting used to but it definitely paid off! Only frustration is that the tightening straps are quite basic; they should be much simpler to loosen and tighten both in and out of water.” – Jock

Entered gleam competition that said if I registered for black Friday sales, I’d get 10 entries when putting in code. Rubbish there’s nowhere to enter the code. It’s a con to get my email address for marketing purposes and I did not get the extra 10 points. Gleam is DISHONEST and UNETHICAL. If this TRUE post is not published, then you are just as bad for allowing them to use you.

The best snorkel and mask combination. No going back now! I could snorkel for over an hour easily. So glad I made this purchase

Package: Dry Snorkel (Set + Fins + Bag)
Mermaid M. (Townsville, AU)

While travelling in Timor leste l met a fellow snorkeller. We snorkelled for 10 days together the food was shit but the water was stunning. The friend was using Ninja Shark fins and mask mine were steaming up, letting in water and heavy. On arriving back in Australia l ordered straight away.
I was a little bit anxious on receiving my order as the mask was quite different to my old one and the fins were short and adjustable ( l wanted them to be my size ! ) well to my luck the weather was beautiful ( yes mid winter in Mackay ) and perfect for boating so off we scooted to Cockermouth ( don't laugh it's a real place ) jumping in and WOW I'm now a mermaid 🧜‍♀️ the mask and fins felt like part of me. I actually cried as not only was the equipment allowing me to explore as l wanted but the reef was STUNNING. So lm indepted to Ninja Shark for making me the mermaid l always aspired to be 🧜‍♀️

Took it to Tahiti

I wasn’t quite sure about getting a full face mask but bought mine (Electra package) before a trip to Tahiti which we got home from yesterday - absolutely LOVED it!!! I’ll be getting one for my wife before our next trip to a similar destination. BTW I make LOTS of crazy videos with lots of toys.

Life changing

I do love my full face snorkel.. the freedom of nose breathing under the water.. the meditative and relaxative effect of this snorkeling is unexpected and great. Fits so well.. comfy to wear for long time.. highly recommend

Super quality & fit

So happy we got Ninja shark, perfect for Great barrier reef snorkel day.
Flippers, mask, dry wallet, carry bag (good quality bag), anti fog spray, happy days.

Ninja Shark Kids Mask

We recently brought the Ninja Shark Kids 3-11 Mask + Fins + Bag package for our 7 year old who absolutely loves it! Will be buying three more for the rest of the family. 😊

Even better than expected!

I saw the kids full face snorkel masks online, and thought they looked pretty cool. I ordered two for Christmas, for my 3 and 6 year olds. Wow, did they have a great time with them!

I wasn't sure how the 3 year old would go with it, but he was comfortable in it almost immediately, and spent hours swimming around and seeing a whole new world of underwater scenery.

They were easy to fit, zero issues with them staying on. No leaks or fog.

They can't wait to get back to the water!

Highly recommend this product :)

Great way to swim

I have NEVER been able to snorkel but love swimming. These full face snorkels are an absolute game changer in my life. Now I try to swim around 5 kms a week in the local pool. The Ninja mask makes it easy to do laps. I’ve been using the Ninja Shark for a quite few years and find the new Electra the best full face mask ever. No leaks, no fog and really easy to use and great quality. I’ve noticed my regular chats with other swimmers at the pool have encouraged many of them to purchase one of their own. I’ve given my older models to my grandkids and they love them too.


I got one for the 3 year old and one for the 5 year old, I thought maybe the 3 year old would get the hang of it eventually but they both loved it and mastered it pretty quickly. We’ve only used in the swimming pool, excited to go snorkeling in the ocean soon. Great product.

Love it!

Amazing product ! Have the electra package, kids love it. So easy to use. Highly recommend

Diving Dry Snorkel Set with GoPro mount

Love it

Bought these for myself and my husband after getting the full face masks for the kids, and they were so good we’re getting them for the rest of the extended family for Xmas. The fact u can dive down and not get water down ur snorkel is a brilliant bonus! Makes our family holidays much easier and better without snorkel dramas!

This made our holiday

The product itself was amazing, but the service we received allowed us to get our 2 sets of masks for our cruise. We took them with us and used them multiple times for snorkelling on our cruise to Nouméa and New Caledonia. It was amazing snorkelling and being able to breathe easily, and the fins were the most comfortable I've ever used. I've got size 13 feet, and not only were they completely adjustable, but they were THE most comfortable fins ever invented. A massive shoutout to Colleen Zamora from your support staff who helped me out and made it possible to take our gear on holidays! Thanks Colleen!

<3 em

So, I had the old type standard snorkle set I saw the add on tiktok thought I would give it a go. ONG I love them!!! They are so comfortable easy to get on and off and very very good to snorkle with I can see perfect clear thru them and doesn’t fill up with water! A very happy camper

My kids love them

I’ve got three of these masks for my younger kids, however the oldest wants one too as the young ones rave about how good the are.

Summer Family Fun

Our Ninja masks have made snorkelling as a whole family very easy and enjoyable. The kids (and parents) find them super easy to use and have allowed us as a family of five to snorkel for longer than we ever could using traditional snorkel gear. I would highly recommend these masks.

Glad I have but haven’t needed to use .. yet

Great Mask

Love this mask. Kids find it so much easier snorkelling with the Ninja Shark. The snorkel mask is super clear and doesn’t fog up. The adjustable straps are great and easy to loosen and tighten. Very happy that we made the decision to get these for the kids.

A must for snorkelers!

Recently purchased the Equaliser Pro Mask, Finns and bag. 🤿 🐠🐡🐟🦈 Had an amazing time snorkeling off Fitzroy Island, the Pro mask allowed me to explore for over 7 hours. Higly recommend! Planning must next snorkeling trip! 🤿💦🌴☀️


we used our new masks over the weekend. they were amazing, my daughter barely had her head out of the water all day.

Fantastic snorkel!

Our 5 year old has never snorkelled. Put it on and was snorkelling no problem straight away! Easy for him to put on and off by himself. We bought the full package with flippers (also amazing and he can put them on by himself) and the two wet bags. The foldable snorkel is so handy for storing while we are travelling. And the lifetime warranty gives us great comfort that we can use it for future trips! We are so impressed with this product I’m going to get mum and dad one too!

Kids snorkel

It is a lot easier for the younger children to have fun and snorkel without worrying about their nose breathing. My 6 year old swims confidently and happily.

Good clear vision

The first time I tried the mask, I felt I’d made a mistake to buy one!
But with a bit more trial and error and a few more readjustments, I managed to settle into using it.
Each time I went for a snorkel, there was always the need to readjust because you don’t necessarily get the mask on in exactly the same position as it was in the last use. The mask always kept water from entering the eye area, but at times I couldn’t completely seal the mouth area and small amounts of water would seep in, but not stop me from breathing! I never managed to breath with my nose, only with my mouth.
On a big plus, I never had issues with fogging up and you get good clear area of vision. I also wear multi focal glasses, so to solve the problem of poor vision in a snorkel mask, I bought very cheap and ugly pair of glasses with large lenses! I then took the arms off the glasses and carefully placed them inside the eye area of the mask and kept them in place with a piece of blu tac!! 😆 It worked beautifully for my distance vision which is is used the most when snorkelling! I might try an old pair of prescription lenses next time, and then I might be able to read the underwater camera settings as well!
The mask can be a bit fiddly at times, and awkward to get into the right place, but with some patience it did really well, and I never resorted to going back to use my ‘normal’ mask and snorkel. We snorkelled in both calm and choppy water successfully. 🤓🐠🐟🐡🦀🐙
Thanks Ninja Shark!

Kids loved them!

We bought two long tube masks for the girls as a Xmas present, they first tested them in the bath!! The next trip was the beach, they spent hours in the water, my 3yr old son wanted to use the masks too. He loved it as well, he'll be getting one for his birthday. 😊
