Inside tips for your divesailcation

So you’ve booked that dream divesailcation. Now it’s time to get ready for this amazing adventure. We’ve got some tips below that will ensure you have everything you’ll need to frolic in the underwater playground.

What to Pack for Diving?

We hear your packing light and that’s the perfect plan for a care free divesailcation. While there’s not much that needs to make it in your bag, we do have a few suggestions to make sure your kit is complete. If you are looking to add some new gear, we are an official ScubaPro Dealer and can assist you on any questions on gear as well as your order.

Dive Booties.

The uses for a good dive bootie are truly endless, protect your feet from rocks on every adventure and create the perfect fit for our MARES Avanti Quattro Plus open foot rental fins. For great all around, affordable booties check out the ScubaPro Delta Short Dive Boot (3mm) or Mares Equator 2mm Dive Boots on Amazon.

Rashguard and Wet Suit.

The waters we dive in range from mid 70°’s to high 80°’s (F). That said, it’s best to check in with us on current water temperatures for your trip dates. In general, we typically wear a light dive tight and rash guard or a 1.5 mm suit. Some folks run colder so it’s hard to advise on specifics for your body but typically no more then a 2/3mm wetsuit are desired by most guests that dive in the Caribbean.

Dive Computer.

All divers must have a personal dive computer to participate on dives. Some exceptions and rental availability do apply for Discover Scuba and PADI Open Water Certification. Please be sure to contact us in advance on these exceptions so we can discuss the required gear for your dive experience.

If you are looking for a great intro dive computer with some very useful features check out the SUUNTO Vyper Novo Lite Computer available on Amazon. Available for a very reasonable price, this computer includes a built in compass as well as the ability to add air integration.
