I am looking to get into scuba diving, since I live near Puget Sound (Washington). I would probably only do shallow dives, just walking in from the shore. I would also rent my tank. Please do not include the course cost, my parents are paying for that. I would also get used gear as much as possible, but I’d get my drysuit custom-made. Yes, I want a drysuit, I’m pretty skinny and get cold fairly easily, and the puget sound is cold.
Thanks in advance, I’m a total newbie to all this!
I live across the straight in Victoria.
I have a wetsuit and drysuit. I have my BCD, Octo, weights, Mask snorkel and fins. I also have 3 steel 120 cf tanks. I do have an underwater camera, knife, and dive light. I do have a computer as well.
I have spent about $5000 for everything. It is all new, but by no means not the top of the line. I have bought many things during sales. EG: got the drysuit and the underwear for it when it was buy the drysuit and get the underwear free.
I have the gear for me to go for 2 dives.
