Sea snips are widely accepted as being safer and more effective for cutting lines than a dive knife. Small enough to carry in a BC pocket, Sea snips are convenient to take along on any dive.
The Uwatec Aladin
Pro is easy to use yet performs its calculations based on the sophisticated
adaptive Buhlmann model. Ascent rate alarms, altitude compensation, and
no-fly time and a host of other features provide added safety to the diver.
Different styles of lights are available, so you can find out which suits your needs best. Make sure you use fresh batteries and know how to change them.
0.5 mm Wetsuits
These thin wetsuits are ideal for either a tropical dive trip or an extra layer under your regular wetsuit for added warmth.
Digital Video Camera
Take digital underwater videos with the Sony DCR-TR7000 digital 8 format camcorder. Wide angle lens and color correction filter are also available. Be careful with the seals - if you flood it, you lose your deposit!
