Learning to Scuba requires needed gear such as fins

Some personal gear is needed

Students need their own mask, snorkel fins and boots.

It is very important to test and work out the bugs in a pool before going to the ocean.  This is not a snorkeling class. Buy from the store you are taking lessons with that way you can exchange anything that does not work during pool programs. The store provides the rest of the gear needed such as tanks and suits to use while you learn to SCUBA dive.
