Dive masks at Carib Inn’s retail store provide quality and value

navigatorMany divers who visit our store ask how we can sell masks so inexpensively. There are two answers to that. One, we don’t make as much profit as other stores. Two, we search out deals on masks along with quality. There are many companies which are not well known who wholesale masks that come from the same source as the well known manufactures. Because they don’t have a huge advertising budget (some do no advertising at all) they can sell these masks at far lower prices. The mask is the same. Just the name is different.

So the next time you visit our store here at the Carib Inn on Bonaire, don’t be fooled by low prices. The quality of the masks is just as good as any other.
