Gadgets and Gizmos for Divers

Diving accessories - gadgets and gizmos - add to the enjoyment of the dive, but not necessarily the safety. The standard scuba equipment set includes all of the vital parts required for a safe return.

Accessorizing the normal gear with some essential extras might increase the active participation in the sport.

We have compiled a list of trendy, must-have dive accessories that enhance a diver’s involvement during the dives.

It is a good idea to personalize your gear by marking your equipment for easy identification.

Special diving equipment markers are ideal for this purpose. Mark your gear with marking paint, crayons, or colored tape. Now that you have matching scuba gear and extra gadgets, you want to identify your set from other diver’s equipment.

We recommend marking your scuba diving accessories where it is not visible when you are using it. For example, you could write your initials on the inside pocket of your diving fins.

Marking your scuba equipment and accessories prevents frustration and confusion when you are around other divers using similar gear. This happens quite regularly on Thailand liveaboards and busy dive boats.
