Having the right diving equipment is very important for a safe and successful dive. Most of the diving schools in the resorts and cruisers in Maldives offer diving packages or diving tours. All the equipment required for a successful and safe dive are provided by these resorts and cruisers.
Maintained in top condition, these equipments are of the best quality and usually state-of-the-art equipments. They include Compressors, BCD’s or “Buoyancy Control Devices”, Tanks, “Octopus Regulators”, Fins, Snorkels, Fins, Wet suits, “Weight Belts” and Weights, and “Dive Computers”.
An ideal diving suit consists of a 3mm full length wet suit or a Lycra suit. This type of diving suit is perfect for diving through all the times of the year. For making more than one dive a day, a 5mm wet suit is preferred. You can bring your own wet suit. A wetsuit may not be required during hot periods, when the lagoon water is warmer. The water temperatures in the Ocean rarely differ from the range of 27 – 30 degrees Celsius.
