Scuba Diving Equipment Checklist

Haven’t dived for a while?

This checklist may provide a good checklist to packing.

When preparing for a day out on the club’s boats, take some food and water to prepare.

Also consider that the boat is a wet boat, so limit bringing out items you want to keep dry, or otherwise put these in a dry bag.
