BEGINNER

While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

WETSUIT

The wetsuit has the mission of keeping our body warm while we are in the water. There are different thicknesses, choosing one or another depends on the temperature of the water where you are going to dive.

FINS

Fins are another important essential to your scuba diving equipment. When diving, fins let you move through the water seamlessly, without wasting too much energy.

BUOYANCY CONTROL DEVICE  - BCD

A BCD is a device that will allow us to control neutral buoyancy underwater and keep us in positive buoyancy when we are on the surface. Depending on the configuration we use, there are different models of BCD. The most common in recreational diving is the jacket.

DIVING TANK

The diving tank is the device that keeps compressed the air mixture that we are going to breathe. According to the material, we have two types of tanks. They can be made of steel or aluminum.

MASK

A complete list of scuba diving equipment has to include a good mask, or you will not be able to see underwater. Choose well, verify that the skirt adjusts well to your face.

REGULATOR

Never forget the regulator, as this is what allows you to breathe underwater. The regulator has a part called the first stage that connects to your scuba tank and moves air from the tank when you inhale. There is also a part called the second stage, which is what you put in your mouth to breath from.

DIVE COMPUTER

A dive computer tells you how much time you have left to finish your dive.  These devices calculate through algorithms that take into account the data obtained during the dive and compare it to your decompression model.

DIVE BELT

The dive belt is the part of the equipment that will help us compensate for the elements that cause positive buoyancy, such as air bubbles in our wetsuit or the human body itself. With it we will be able to dive more easily.
