With Christmas not far away, here are some of our best picks for scuba presents this year. Whether you need to buy a present for a diver or your loved ones are asking you for ideas on what to get you this year, you’ll find a whole range of Christmas gifts for any diver, at any level, to suit any budget.
An oldie but goodie, the HangAir has always been a popular gift idea. If the diver in your life has a wet or drysuit then a Hangair will speed up the drying process and ensure it is completely dry before storing it away.
A built-in fan circulates fresh air through the inside of the suit to dry and freshen and make sure each time it is used it feels (and smells!) as good as new.
T-shirts and hoodies are always an easy gift for scuba fans.
You’ll find lots of conservation style messages and marine based graphics on Dive Clothing for both men and women which we feel any lover of the ocean will definitely appreciate.
One of the main reasons to go scuba diving is to see the amazing range of underwater life but what’s even more amazing is actually knowing what you’re looking at.
The Marine Pictolife Books are waterproof and full of pictures and information about local species.
The Paralenz Dive Camera is one of the first of it’s kind. Small and tough it can be mounted almost anywhere and can record video for the whole dive.
The main benefit of the Paralenz though, is it’s built in depth sensor that automatically adjusts the white balance at depth so you’re pictures and videos aren’t all blue.
This year we produced a range of Premium Cases so you can better store and transport your valuable kit.
From small cases for your dive computer and mask to a large one made for your regulators, each case is semi-rigid to protect from bumps and crushing and some even feature foam padding inside.
This year we have a wide range of Divers Watches that have been designed for scuba divers with high-contrast faces and deep depth ratings.
All feature a rotating bezel so you can time the length of your dive and there are a vast array of styles, colours and strap options.
There is some great new innovation coming from smaller manufacturers and one piece of technology that caught our eye was the FinClip.
A combination of a fin strap and snowboard binding the FinClip allows for hands-free donning and doffing of your fins thanks to the hinged bungee design.
Not technically for diving but why not treat someone to the gift of discovering the underwater world with the OceanREEF Aria Snorkel Mask.
Full Face Snorkels can now be seen all over the world and let you breathe through your nose and mouth while keeping the water away from your face.
The Orca D520 Dive Torch is a compact but powerful torch made from an aircraft grade anodised aluminium to make it tough and lightweight. The CREE LED produces up to 1000 Lumens of white light for up to 2 hours with a 18650 battery. We think it would make the perfect stocking filler!
Nothing says “I love you! Come back…” like a Marine Rescue GPS. Waterproof to 130m it gives you the reassurance of being located and rescued anywhere in the world.
The Nautilus will send your GPS location to nearby boats if you’re ever lost at sea so they can come find you.
