What do I need to buy?
Personal gear is life support and is needed to take lessons anywhere and cannot be rented. A mask, snorkel boots, fins and gloves (gloves optional for referrals) are all that is required. The rest is included free of charge!
Get some good personal gear from the Scuba Fusion store because you will be able to exchange it during pool sessions. This process of trial and error will better your odds of passing your ocean checkout dives. Cutting corners by purchasing from “Cost Mart” will only set you back with a re-buy. Plastic lens masks and flimsy child sized snorkeling fins will not do for an Open Water Course. Saving $20 on a cheap pair of fins is not worth it when they fall off 60 feet below the ocean’s surface.
Plan your class at least one week in advance. This will allow you ample time to size your snorkeling gear. Please do not wait until the last minute. We may not have your size or color choice available.
Scuba Fusion now offers a no questions asked return policy on snorkeling gear. During your class, if you are not comfortable with it in the pool – exchange it for another or take store credit. (Policy good for Scuba Fusion students only during the class/pool portion of the Open Water Course)
