Equipment Requirements

During the Divemaster Course and for use once you become a PADI Professional, Divemaster Candidates are expected to have a full set of equipment. Having your own equipment during training allows you to become familiar with it and will make your training and diving easier and more comfortable. If you have equipment and are not sure what to bring then bring everything you have. If you tend to feel the cold then make sure you bring a full length 3-5mm wetsuit, particularly if you are taking the Divemaster course during the cooler months.

During the Divemaster Course Divemaster Trainees must have:

MARES FINSfins, mask, snorkel, buoyancy control device with low pressure inflator, regulator, alternate air source, submersible pressure gauge, weight system, appropriate exposure protection, timing device, depth gauge, compass, knife / diver's tool, slate, dive table and two surface signaling devices - one audible (whistle, air horn, etc.) and one visual (inflatable surface tube, flare, signal mirror, etc.).

The Dive Academy will provide tanks, weights and weight belts for the duration of the Divemaster Course. 

If there is any item of equipment you don't have you can buy it from The Dive Academy and you will get 10% discount on anything you buy.
