Equipment

Nitrox

Diving pricing given for dive packages, other than open water and advanced courses, generally include loan of tanks, belt, weights (specified as tanks and weights) and air. Guideline prices for the hire of equipment can be provided on request. You will need to take or hire mask, fins, snorkel, regulator with octopus and pressure gauge, and stabjacket (BCD) with inflator. Each diver must also have his own gauge for monitoring depth and time or a dive computer.

Wetsuits are recommended even in tropical waters, to reduce the water’s cooling effect on longer dives and protect the skin against coral and rock cuts and abrasions. Most centres have only a limited range of wetsuits - so we recommend you take your own.
