Packing Tips for Divers
- Don't forget your c-card. Take the card that shows your highest rating. Lost your card, need a replacement? Click here.
- Make sure your logbook is up to date. Some dives require experience and you will be required to show proof.
- If you are certified in Nitrox, be sure to have your card. Many dive services around the world now offer Nitrox.
- Pack all your dive gear except tanks and weights, which are provided. Rentals for any items you may not have
are almost always available, but check in advance.
- What will the water temps be? How many dives will you make each day? These are the things you must consider in
whether or not you will need skins, polartec, wetsuit, or nothing at all.
- Most locations have a dive shop or at least carry a small amount of replacement parts, but many times just for
the major brands. You can save a lot of time, effort and grief if you have o-rings, straps and other minor parts
- Spare batteries for dive light, camera and computer is a great thing to have. Batteries have become so specialized
and varied, you do not want to spend all your suface intervals searching for batteries. If appropriate, take your
Safety Sausage, Whistle, Horn, Reflector - There are a number of safety devices available to get the boat's attention
should you become seperated. Any of these would be a great item to have clipped to your BC, just in case.
- Be sure you have your medical insurance card (it may or may not be any good at your destination), and your dive
accident insurance card. Dive accident insurance are usually valid at any destination. Check out your coverages
in both instances.
- Take prescription medications in their original containers, with your name clearly marked. Take a sufficient
supply to last your entire trip and a little extra just in case your trip is delayed.
