What gear will I need?

As a beginner, you will have lots of questions about scuba diving equipment. Do I need all the dive kit from the very start? How expensive is it to get all the kit I need?

Once you start your Ocean Diver training, it’s a good idea to purchase your own basic gear – a mask, fins and snorkel.

When you progress to open water you will require a wetsuit or semi-drysuit. These can be hired, but you may want to purchase your own to ensure a good fit and familiarisation. It is often only when you are qualified that divers obtain their own full set of gear.

As with most specialist gear, there can be a huge range in prices, but budget on $200 upwards for a pair of fins, mask and snorkel. Wetsuits for South Australia diving start from around $500 and drysuits from $2,000. To fully equip a diver, expect to pay around $3,000 although if your kit is well-maintained this will be a long-term investment.
