Best Gifts for Scuba Divers

Updated on January 13, 2018

Gadgets for Scuba Divers

Are you one those who has recently taken up diving? Diving has now become a popular sport and scuba divers just love to equip themselves with the latest gadgets. And you, of course, know that many of these gadgets are expensive so go easy when you choose gifts for your diver friends. My suggestion is, if you're tired of getting expensive gifts for your scuba divers, gift them to someone else. You will save a lot of money.

That is, of course, only true because many of us think that most diving stuff cost so much. No, not at all. Divers need many things and many of them can be bought cheaply. Try a whistle or a knife or a pair of gloves or a dive book.

Choices of Gadgets for Scuba Divers

There are many choices but if the intended is close to you and you want a substantial gift, then splurge. Get them the camera that will bowl over the Japanese diving team or a suit that will surprise the eels out of hiding. Your diver will fit in snugly with all the under water creatures.

Your gift choices will depend on the elegance of your diver. If he is a member of Team Ugly, don't worry. My husband is a proud member of this team so he goes in his old t-shirt. This team Ugly tries to wear the most worn out t-shirts and not bother with suits at all. They think they are the pros and the group of well suited divers with their intricate under water cameras don't make it yet. But, I tell you, they want other diving gadgets just to have some bragging rights so read on.

Introduce scuba divers to new dive site destinations

1. Books on Diving

Divers would love to read on the different facets of the sport. They want to keep themselves informed on new gadgets, new destinations, and the latest news.

Also, the want to know about the marine world, the fish and other underwater creatures they see when they dive. It is fun to be able to give them names and make your stories more interesting.

So, for your diver friends get them books on the latest diving destinations to brag about, the latest toys and gadgets divers have now or what's on the market and something on the marine world.

Here's one they will enjoy.

Books on New Diving Destinations

The World's Best Tropical Dive Destinations: Asia-Pacific, Caribbean. Indian Ocean & the Red Sea
The World's Best Tropical Dive Destinations: Asia-Pacific, Caribbean. Indian Ocean & the Red Sea

Yes, every year, scuba destinations have to be unique so the search for those still unexplored diving territories are always on for scuba divers.You know how much bragging goes on among divers especially of their diving adventures so, divers are always in search for the latest diving destination or the most unique diving experience so they can dazzle their fellow divers.

Here's a book to get them. This is most recent and includes most of the best diving destinations in the world. Surely, they still have not tried a few of these.

 

Books on the Marine World

For those divers who have all the gadgets imaginable for diving, books on fish and under water creatures are great gift options. As divers get to experience the under water world, they want they want to know more about the things living there.

They want to be able to differentiate Bill from Karen. Or know more about Mike and Jane who meet them regularly at the drop-off. Or the big Napoleon who smirks at them and just ignore them. Or Bert, the turtle who loves to play with them.

What would even be better is a laminated poster with most of the fish and their names on it. Your diver can carry this all the time when he goes for his dives and he can immediately look at what he has spotted or swam with.

2. Make sure your scuba diver is certified

Enhance scuba divers' knowledge and skills.

Books to enhance their scuba knowledge and skills are top of the list. There are books about the hottest diving destinations as well as those that describe the ocean world. Knowledge of the ocean world will truly enhance the experience of your divers.

Certification is important in this sport so start the process for your friends. Get them a scuba certification package. There are packages offered in different places so you can tie it up with their trip.

3. Dive Logs

How can they brag about how many times they have descended to the under water world if they can't prove it? They also need to prove they have done so many dives to get further training. So there you go. It's better if this record book has a waterproof cover. If you know your diver well, you know what I am talking about.

Scuba Diving Log Binder with Dry Tech Bag

Make your diver friends you are giving the gift to love writing their logs by giving them this binder. If they had been diving, maybe the previous dive log journal is already full so give them a new one. They can always use a new one.

Anything waterproof is always a joy for scuba divers. My husband is very punctilious about filling up his log book. This is part of their bragging resource.

4. Dive Suits for Scuba Divers

Many divers in tropical climates don't bother to wear suits. However, in colder climates, you need these suits. Besides, you are better protected if you wear one. And you really don't want to be part of Team Ugly, do you?

Please remember I am talking about wet suits here. If your diving doofus is going for Lake Ontario or the northern hemisphere, then he or she will need a dry suit. But this is really more for the crazies. Let's just stick to wet suits here.

A new set of divers' fins will also be very practical. Even when just snorkeling, the fins make swimming easier and faster. So your divers will always appreciate this. Make sure you have their feet size so you get one that fits.

It is also better if they match the suit color. You can't offend the fish fashion sense. Give them a break.

Boots for Divers

Neo-Sport Premium Neoprene Men & Women Wetsuit Boots, Shoes puncture resistant sole 3mm, 5mm & 7mm warm, moderate cold water watersports: beach, boat, lake, mud, kayak more! Sizes 4-16
Neo-Sport Premium Neoprene Men & Women Wetsuit Boots, Shoes puncture resistant sole 3mm, 5mm & 7mm warm, moderate cold water watersports: beach, boat, lake, mud, kayak more! Sizes 4-16

Most divers already have dive suits and often, it is difficult to get the right fit so, when buying gifts for your diver friends, these boots may be a better option. They are zipped for easy wear so there is more chance of these fitting them. You can, of course, get their foot size so you're sure they'll fit.

It is really advisable for divers to wear one. These are also useful for surfing.

 

5. New Mask for Divers

Diving is very unpleasant when your mask does not work so it is best to get divers the best mask in the market. But hold on.

Once you start diving, you want to document some of the unique things you see and experience under water. When my husband started diving, he immediately wanted to get an underwater camera to capture the beauty he sees in the underwater world.

GoPro cameras work well taking videos and pictures as you move but you need a mask that's compatible with it and this mask works well. But don't forget to get your divers a GoPro camera as well.

Diver's Mask Compatible with GoPro Cameras

OCTOMASK GoPro Hero5 and Session Dive Mask for Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
OCTOMASK GoPro Hero5 and Session Dive Mask for Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Here's one to gift any diver. A new mask that works well with GoPro cameras. You may have to get them a GoPro camera if they don't yet have one. As they dive, they are taking pictures and videos of what they are enjoying. Handsfree, their picture taking is much more manageable.

This camera also takes really good videos and this is what divers want as marine life often move around.

 

6. Earplugs for scuba divers

Maybe, this gift is more for you

Not for your diver but for you. So you can pretend to listen but not really hear the silly drivel that they hand out when they come home.

Every story grows. The tiny wrasse bumping into their masks grows, through the magic of air travel, to become a barracuda attempting to bite their faces. And the coral that he saw opened was as big as a house.

Seriously, scuba divers do need to protect their ears.

Other gifts your divers will appreciate - Dive Knives for Gifts

7. Scuba Diving Knife

Sometimes, your divers get into some tangles of lost fishing lines, old anchor strings, ropes or fish nets that got entangled in the area where you are diving. At times, they can easily get around them but there will be times, when the only way out is to use a knife. Get a good one. It is the best way of getting a belly laugh from a shark.

8. Diving Gear - For beginning divers who want to take scuba diving seriously

You don't need to buy these as many dive shops provide you with the necessary equipment. Take a look so you get a better sense of what to gift your diving friends and family members. Sometimes, your diver wants more adventure and so dive in places where there are no dive shops. This is where you will need your own diving gear. Unless your diver is really close to you, this is quite a painful investment.

Forget about the watch unless your divers want to be noticed. For your diver safety, he needs to have a working gauge. It tells the diver how deep he is in and how long he has been there. Gives them hints on the amount of nitrogen in their blood. It beeps when they rise too fast. Unless your diver is diving constantly throughout the year, rent life dependent equipment from the dive shop you are diving with. It is your best assurance that it's working.

9. A Diving Bag - Gift scuba divers this

Now with all these things they have, how do they carry these? Of course, there are just the bags for these. Here are some choices.

A bag is really practical. They can organize their things and keep these always in their bag after use. They are always ready for the next dive destination.


Other key gifts for divers

Gifts divers need

Inflatable diver marker is another important gift as this marks their position and the boat will know where to pick them up.

If your divers have the same problem as our doofus one who cannot see clearly with his left eye from a distance, you will give him a totally new diving experience by paying for corrective masks. They are not cheap but they are worth the experience.

      Nice article! You could always add the HOOKA system as a gift idea, that's if you're rich! LOL

      Nicely done here. I love scuba and snorkeling. It's a whole other world under there. The mask with the camera is amazing! I almost bought that once. They didn't have it in stock, so they were to call me when they ordered more. But by the time they did, I had found something different I liked more.

I've never shopped for diving equipment other than for the children's use in fresh water lakes but I see this is an amazing industry all by itself...and not just for Christmas, divers need equipment for Valentines Day, birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversaries....make up a special day!

      Quite the selection of gifts for divers. You obviously have a diver(s) in your family or group of friends, as you are very knowledgeable about what a diver needs or wants. :)

      Thanks so much for featuring my sports gifts story here. I know nothing about "diving" so only mentioned gifts for sports I know about. I will have to refer 'divers' to this page for a great selection of Scuba Diver gifts.

      We have several divers in our family. They already own most of the necessary equipment, but I love the idea of watches, knives and flashlights. One can never have too many of these, as they tend to get dropped or lost easily. Oh, wait, maybe just "borrowed" easily!
