After Typhoon Nona

typhoon nona

We are happy to announce that Scandi Divers only suffered minor damages in the 200km per hour winds that typhoon Melor brought us.

We are fully operational again and looking forward to see you all for Christmas.

Our thoughts got out to those less fortunate than ourselves, who are suffering through severe damages and flooding.

scuba diving kit

It’s not if but when you’ll rely on the contents of your save-a-dive kit: the zipper on your dry suit won’t budge, your buddy forgets his/her mask, an o-ring blows. If you’re not prepared, you’re not diving. Don’t wait to learn the hard way: use our list below to start assembling your save a dive kit.

Pre-packaged kits are typically available from your local PADI Dive Center or Resort, or you can create a custom one.  Below are some ideas for items you might want to include.

  • Fin straps
  • Mask strap or extra mask
  • Mouthpiece
  • Zip/cable ties
  • Nail clippers
  • O-rings
  • Waterproof Band-Aids / plasters
  • Duct tape
  • Batteries
  • Silicone grease for o-rings.
  • Multi-tool/adjustable wrench
  • Port plugs – include both high and low pressure port plugs
  • Defog
  • Carabineers/bolt snaps
  • Copy of dive insurance card
  • Spare PADI C-card
  • Sea-sickness medication
  • Snorkel keeper
  • Dry suit zipper wax
  • Dry box for storing the items above.

The list above is just a starting place. Underwater photographers, technical divers, and certain specialty dives may require additional items not on this list. Be sure to consult your PADI Instructor for what he or she includes in their save a dive kit.

Another way to avoid problems is to take care of your gear and have it serviced regularly. The PADI Equipment Specialist course is great starting place to learn proper “care and feeding” of your scuba equipment.

Track of service dates in your gear locker on scubaearth.com and access the information anywhere there’s an internet connection.  You can include purchase date and last date of service.

What are your must-haves for your save-a-dive kit?
