Making More Bubbles

 

Josh and I have a fancy new toy to take on our trip to Cozumel, a Dive Computer from Oceanic. When we decided to pursue SCUBA diving as a hobby we also decided not to rush into buying a bunch of gear. As each trip has progressed we have a better idea what types of equipment we like and want to buy instead of renting. I would certainly prefer to have my own things but there is still a breakpoint between having to travel with this stuff and just renting it. The decision to get a dive computer stems from our comfort level in the water and wanting to extend our experience. Right now we rely on using dive tables and conservative measurements of our guilds. While it is recommended that each diver have their own computer, we just purchased one. I am usually at a not at the same depth as Josh and his times will be fine for me. He eventually wants to get a different style of dive computer, one that will be integrated with gear that we have yet to purchase. At that point I will inherit this wrist mounted one.

I wrote this post last night and today we are going to a dive shop just for one more look at a few other pieces of equipment before our trip. Who knows what they might have on sale that fits our needs.

Thank you to Josh’s parents for giving us the funds to make this purchase possible, a very generous Christmas gift.

  1. Have fun diving!

    I’ve been diving a couple times (Australia and Egypt)- it was super fun. I’m not certified or anything though, I think it would be really fun to get certified and go out without a teacher.

    Enjoy your gear!
