Equipment

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you'll need a digital underwater camera, plus a computer or other device for downloading and viewing your images. Your PADI Professional may suggest additional equipment and accessories depending on your camera system.

Personal Equipment — You'll need to provide your own bathing suit and towel. For your personal hygiene and comfort, there are some things that we simply choose not to provide you with, and this is more out of concern for your health and well-being than anything else. These include:

  • Snorkel — Risk of orally transmitted diseases
  • Mask — To prevent masks fogging, divers spit in their masks. Would you like to put on your face something that someone else has recently spat in?
  • Gloves — Dermatitis
  • Dive Boots — Tinea is a nasty fungal bug that loves to jump from one person to another
  • Fins — Complete your own snorkelling kit

If you don't already have them, you can buy these items in our dive shop online or in-store. Our experienced dive shop staff can help you with the right equipment choices.

Rental Equipment — Rental gear is not included in the price. The Scuba Doctor has high-quality BCDs, Regulators with Dive Computers, Scuba Cylinders, Wetsuits and Weight Belts available for hire. See Scuba Equipment Rental for details.
