Being comfortable, safe and prepared when you’re diving is vital. For your Advanced Open Water course, we ask that you have your own snorkeling equipment and a knife, torch and slate, so that you are able to relax and get the most from your training. We highly recommend that all our students also carry a reel and DSMB. Academy of Scuba offers value packages for this equipment, with items available in a wide range of styles and price ranges.
To get the maximum benefit from this course, we recommend investing in your own regulators, BCD and computer. Please call the shop or have a look on our online store for options. Equipment hire is available at the standard rates.
Academy of Scuba is lucky to have some of the best dive professionals in the business.
