What gear will you need?
All DDS students need to purchase their own Mask, Strap Fins, Snorkel, Boots. You’ll want to buy the right gear, so please have a read through our DDS Student Diver PDF and learn more about the specific gear requirements and training differences we offer, as well as some incentives. Many of our students prefer to purchase the rest of their kit too. Please know you don’t need to purchase a weight belt and weights, at DDS we do not believe in over weighting our students. In your course you will learn how to use little to no weight. Weight belts are an outdated piece of gear that has not been used by us in training since the late 1990’s.
Financing is available: Finance your course, snorkeling gear and even your scuba equipment package at a very reasonable rate. Ask staff for details and learn diving in the best equipment you can…..your own personal dive gear, or ours. DDS will include all scuba equipment for the course. However, you will enjoy your diving experience much more in your own personal dive equipment.
