If you have a close relationship with a diver, finding the right gift for your them can be as hard as finding a ghost shark, there’s so much to choose from.

 

Here are 6 gifts that are sure to make your diver’s heart sink.

Specialty Courses

Diving takes a brave soul and it certainly takes sharp skills to go under water. Keep your diving companion sharp by treating them to a specialty course is one of the most enriching things you can do. Specialty courses include but are not limited to, navigation, stress and rescue, deep diving, night and limited visibility and beyond. Most areas offer some sort of diving courses so research what’s available in your area.

Underwater Photography

There are plenty of choices, but depending on the divers experience and your budget, choosing a camera will take research. One good underwater shot can really complete a diver’s career, so a good camera will go a long way. Underwater cameras and lenses range in size and size is important when diving down in the water. The Underwater Photography Guide is a resourceful website in guiding shoppers.

Dive with the Great Whites

If you’re diver is braver than most and takes Shark Week very seriously, than an experience gift certificate to dive with the Great White sharks may be the catch of the day. This experience gift makes for a great birthday gift and will certainly be an odyssey they will remember forever. Diving with sharks is not an easy fete but the divers out there who have a passion for this prehistoric and powerful shark will have an experience of a lifetime.

Solar Powered Charger

With long hours spent away from shore, the avid diver still needs some way to communicate with family and friends or to post on their blog if they have one.  A solar powered charger can provide a failsafe way for all of the devices that the diver needs to be charged up and ready for use when they are needed.  Find out how to choose the best solar powered charger here.

Go Pro Underwater Camera

This is one of the most sought after items that a diver wants to get his hands on.  This is a way for a diver to communicate his experience to another person who does not dive.  A Go Pro offers the opportunity to share footage of a dive.  If you have a diver in your life that does not have a Go Pro you should try to understand the intricacies of this equipment so that you can make an informed choice if you decide to purchase a Go Pro.

H20 Odyssey Go Bag

This is a waterproof case that keeps all of the diver’s items dry.  These bags are available in several sizes and will protect items on a dive of up to 100 feet below the surface.  This is the perfect way to protect a smartphone or other electronic device, especially if they are going to take it along with them on a dive.
Conclusion

Don’t dive into the latest fads and trends for the ideal gift—especially if you’re shopping for someone who prefers to spend time underwater.  Just hold your breath, think, and then let this guide help you.

I enjoy scuba diving quite a lot, and I've always wanted to be able to capture everything I see on picture or video.

I'm not sure of any places in and around Vancouver that sell underwater cameras though. Continued…

Currently there’s the 1030 SW and 770 SW that are capable of a depth of 10 metres but since I go scuba diving deeper than that, I’m curious if there’s a new one on the way that beats both the cameras above. You see, I want to avoid buying an underwater casing as much as I can Continued…

I have a Konica Minolta (Dimage X60) digital camera and would like to buy an underwater Housing for it so that I can use it while scuba diving. Is there anyone out ther e who can direct me to the right place where I can get it from? Thanks

Here is a link to one of the oldest makers of underwater housings … nearly 40 years. I use ikelite and Wills housings, but you should also check your camera manufacture website as many have their own underwater housings (beware many only suit diving above 20 meters)

Classic Game Room HD reviews YARS’ REVENGE for the Nintendo DS / Gameboy Advance. It’s Yars’ Revenge on the GO! Word! Blast the Quotile with your mighty Zorlon cannon in office meetings, the dentist office, in gym class and when scuba diving. This awesome game pack for GBA, which works on Nintendo DS, can be had in bargain bins now for less than a footlong sub. And just like subs can pack three kinds of meat, this game packs three video games in one! PONG, ASTEROIDS and YARS REVENGE!!! Sadly is does not come with the excellent Yars’ Revenge comic book but the game itself makes an excellent transition to a portable game system. A few changes were made, namely with some sound FX and the scale of the Yar and Razak Solar System, but overall the gameplay is solid and the lasting fun and replay value of Yars’ Revenge can be played in your Nintendo DS! This game cartridge is from Atari for the Gameboy Advance and has a menu where you select from three arcade machines, Pong, Asteroids and Yar’s Revenge. Go Nintendo for the making the Nintendo DS compatable, awesome! Classic Game Room HD reviews gameboy advance games and Nintendo DS games like Yars’ Revenge, as a Nintendo Gameboy reviewer reviewing Gameboy Advance games on a Nintendo DS. Sometimes the best games can be found in clearance bins!

So I want to buy a digital camera using Lithium batteries because I read they last longer and can recharge, and SD cards or something commonly used. It must also have lots of features, take good quality photos, have a good shutter and hopefulyl can take pretty good action and night photos, have video option, fast load and photo taking times, have a really long lasting battery/recharge quick and not too expensive. Anything else I should look for?

I will be doign a trip To UK, Europe and Asia and plan to do some snorkling and scuba diving, I need to buy a new digital compact camera and I was thinking if I should get a waterproof one as it could be cool but I am not sure if they are more costly and dont take as good general photos or movies?

What do you think?

Check the Olympus Stylus SW line of shock-proof and water-proof cameras.

Be forewarned that all digicams suffer from what's known as "shutter lag" – the delay between the time you press the shutter button and the camera actually takes the picture. Some have more than others but all have it. You can minimize it by pressing the shutter button 1/2 way down so the camera can focus and then finish releasing the shutter. Using "continuous" or "burst" mode can also help.

Also, digicams are usually poor performers in low-light, even with flash.

I am going to buy a waterproof case for a camera. The underwater case states that it goes up to 10 ft. I am planning on going on a scuba diving trip. If I take the camera and go to 20ft or more, will the case leak or break? What happens when I pass the 10 ft limit?

The waterproof enclosure probably won't break but it might leak. If it is a flexible plastic case rather than a rigid one, it is also possible that the water may press on the case hard enough to push one or more of the buttons on your camera. The deeper you go, the more expensive your case is likely to get. Be prepared for some real sticker shock when you get down past 30 m (100 ft) or so, where the case is likely to exceed the cost of your camera body.
