PRACTICAL YET FUN GIFTS FOR SCUBA DIVERS
These gifts are items your dive buddy will love, but might not buy themselves.
Maybe it’s a stereotype, but scuba divers are extra contienscious of their impacts that diving has on the environment. They’ll appreciate having a bottle of reef-safe sunscreen on hand to keep their favorite dive site pristine. There is also reef-safe wetsuit wash.
This Girls That Scuba tote is shipped without plastic and made from 100% organic cotton. 10% of profit goes to Plastic Ocean.
Gear from their favorite nonprofit or conservancy: What’s your dive buddy’s favorite animal? No matter what it is, there’s likely a non-profit out there helping keep that critter safe. Get some swag or donate to an organization like:
Dry bags are useful in so many situations – while traveling on a dive trip, storing electronics on a dive boat, and having a place to stash a spare change of clothes to change into post dive. It’s also one of those things that are helpful no matter what size it is or how many the diver already owns.
There are dive prints that are vintage, modern, mermaid-themed, and abstract. We love this dive map that highlights the world’s best dive sites and what you can expect to see there (get 10% off with the promo code “SALTSIRENS”)
Every diver wishes she was a mermaid – why else would she strap on a pair of aqua lungs? This blanket is fun, comfortable, and will help console your dive buddy during the sad moments she’s not in the water.
A dive computer is the secondary brain behind scuba diving that records and alerts divers of what’s happening during their dive. If your dive buddy moonlights as a freediver, be sure to get a computer that’s freediving compatible.
Learning doesn’t stop after an open water course. There are courses for photography, wreck diving, cave diving, rescue diving, and much more! If you can think of it, there’s probably a course for it.
The ultimate gift for scuba divers? The gift of you — a dive buddy!
Many scuba divers only want the gift of somebody to go with. Consider enrolling in an open-water course if you haven’t done so and give the gift they’re sure to appreciate the most – the chance to dive with you!
