 Scuba Trip Check off List

  Here is an example of supplies you might want or need on a week long SCUBA trip. This is what we refer to as a warm water 'light' trip. Many trips you may be going on may have a weight limit for your luggage. So plan ahead, pack your bags, then weigh the entire baggage. 'Soft' luggage does weigh less.  Click here for printable Check Off List.

 Warning & Notes: on Camera and lights:

  When traveling from different altitudes, you should pack your camera and lights with the O-rings removed. When going from one altitude to another, a pressure difference will develop between the inside of any sealed device and the atmosphere. You can actually damage camera's by attempting to force them open under these conditions. This has happened to us on our cameras, and we have discovered that warranties do not cover this damage, nor do they mention this in the most owners manuals.

O-rings:  Here's a list of the O-rings you might include in your save a dive kit.

Computer Batteries (limited list of what we've used):
   We've found problems with finding fresh computer batteries in many resorts, so its a good idea to either replace your batteries before a trip or to take a spare with you.  When you purchase them from a SCUBA dealer, you can expect to get a new O-ring with it.  We strongly urge you to use a new 0-ring with each replacement.  If you are not experienced at doing this yourself, you might consider having your dealer do it for you.  Manufacturer warranties do not cover 0-ring leakage!  Test in fresh water before you go into saltwater!
