Staff Gear Picks

Staff Gear Picks

All too often we get asked by our divers, “what gear do you use?” When you are looking at purchasing your own dive gear, sometimes it can be overwhelming with all of the information available online. If you’re anything like me, I spend hours researching before I make a purchase, and sometimes I end up being more confused than when I started. If you ask 5 different people, you’re going to get 5 different opinions!

Our staff are in the water diving 3-5 days a week, so needless to say we log some major hours with our dive gear! Let us tell you our experience with the gear, what works for us, what didn’t, and why!
