Top 5 Gift Ideas For A Friend Who Loves Diving

Scuba diving has become increasingly popular over the last decade, with thousands of people now listing it as one of their favourite hobbies. But what can you buy someone who loves to scuba dive? Well, you need look no further for the answer.

The Mares X-Vision Liquid Skin is a perfect underwater face mask, for both recreational and professional drivers alike. It promises to mould to the skin, taking it to a new level of comfort. Lightweight, with a soft silicone portion that rests on the face, this mask is designed to fit any size or shape of face and is suitable for all kinds of diving, from snorkelling to free driving and costs 40.95.

Or at the cheaper end of the market, but equally important for any serious diver and the perfect accompaniment to the Mares X-Vision Liquid Skin, is the Simply Scuba Mask Strap Wrapper, which retails at just 5.00. Ideal for the diver with either longer, or less hair, the strap wrapper is designed to fit over the existing mask strap to ensure that putting on and taking off the mask is much more comfortable. Once again, this product is suitable for all divers who don’t want to damage their hair (or head) when using the mask.

A Scubapro Octopus Holder is known as one of the best available and it won’t break the bank at 5.95. The diver uses this to hold their alternate air source ready and can be easily released by an out of air diver with a quick pull. It also has the added benefit that whilst in the ready position, the internal plug stops the Octopus being filled with dirt.

Scuba diving is something which needs to be taught and not everyone can do it. But for those who have what it takes, it is imperative that they are able to communicate with others in the water. At 14.00 the Submerge Shaker ensures your loved one’s safety. A hand operated scuba-rattle it has been extremely well constructed and is known for its volume under the water at any depth.

An absolutely perfect gift, – which may not mean that much to the non-diver, but would impress someone who does, is the Mares Trilastic 5mm Boots that you can buy for under 30. These boots have been designed specifically to give the wearer the most control and power when swimming and are also perfect for cold water dives or anywhere the diver may have to navigate rocks. The area around the ankle is made of super-elastic material, with the lower section made from neoprene, which ensures warmth and endurance. The toes and heels of the boots are reinforced and the heel is raised to keep the diver balanced when carrying the substantial weight of the equipment needed when diving. All this comfort and safety for a cool 29.90!
