As our customers begin to embark on their spring and summer expeditions, we get a lot of questions about rentals. It is true that most dive destinations have rentals available, but purchasing gear is almost always the smarter decision for both your wallet and your safety.

Why rent snorkeling sets for $10/day when you can buy them for $70? Dive computers can cost $100/week, or you can invest in one for only $300. If you are worried about traveling with heavy gear, we sell a full-featured BCD that weighs 4.3lbs for only $425.
