Isn't there some sort of Rock N Roll festival going on at HB?

We have the full face masks and have used them for two years. You just have to make sure the seal is tight on your face. I wouldn't go back to the other "old fashioned" kind. This year the sea was too rough for good snorkeling though. :-(

Please post a report of any changes made at Happy Bay as a result of the festival. One publication wrote about several things they were doing. I think they mentioned upgrading Danny's beach bar, remodeling some the houses and clearing an area for parking.

I recommend some anti fog drops. Two drops before you snorkel and you never will have the problem. 5 buck bottle will last you years.... Spit works in a pinch too ;-)

Baby shampoo works great. Won't sting the eyes.

Tooth paste is usually used to scrub the silicone residue of the lens from the manufacture. The abrasive and soapy consistency would leave me to believe it would cause irritation to the eyes. Great to use on a new pair before using but I would stick with Johnson baby shampoo for anti fogging after the initial scrubbing.

toothpaste (regular, not gel) to clean/prep new mask....afterwards, 500 PSI anti-fog works for me
