Instructor candidates must have the following equipment:

  • Fins, mask, snorkel
  • Buoyancy control device with low pressure inflator
  • Regulator with alternate air source and submersible pressure gauge
  • Wetsuit
  • Timing device, depth gauge and compass
  • Knife/diver’s tool
  • Slate and dive table
  • Two surface signaling devices
    one audible (whistle, air horn, etc.)
    one visual (inflatable surface tube, flare, signal mirror, etc.)
  • Weight belts, weights and tanks (provided)
  • Pocket mask

It is possible to rent basic equipment from us (mask, snorkel, fins, BCD, regulator, wetsuit, weights and tank). However, if you wish to work as an instructor you will need your own set of equipment to secure a job. We offer discounted prices on gear and advice from our knowledgeable staff about what is best for you. A full set of equipment is included in many diving internship packages.
