Scuba Diving Equipment Holiday Checklist

Scuba Diving Equipment Holiday Checklist

Whether you have had your dive trip booked for months and have been patiently waiting for the day to come round or you have taken advantage of an amazing deal on a last minute booking there is always a little concern about making sure you have packed everything you need. Sure, spare bits of kit may be available but you can bet it is no where near as good as your own kit.

To help make sure you take everything you need we have put together a checklist covering the main areas of kit that you are likely to need. Obviously what you eventually take will depend on the type of diving you will be doing but it is a good place to start. Don't forget that if you are missing something from this list that you need in a hurry we offer Next Business Day delivery on anything that we have in stock or pop in to see us in store to see how we can help you out.
