Before you jump in (or head out on a dive trip) make sure you have all the kit you need to stay safe, help your buddies and mainly, enjoy your dive. 

The lists are pretty comprehensive so you don’t forget anything important. Plus by being prepared yourself you might be able to help a buddy in need (not every diver will bring every item). We have provided downloadable PDF's too in case you want to print them out and tick each item off as you pack for your next adventure (diving trip).
