Divers' Equipment and Excursion Terminology

Divers head underwater for discovery or recreational purposes. These professionals are typically PADI, Professional Association of Diving Instructors, certified diving in oceans and rivers to recover lost items or people. They may also dive for instructional purposes, to teach others how to dive or to lead vacationers on excursions. Or, they may scuba dive purely for recreation, especially around abundant reef areas. Whatever the reason, they need the necessary divers equipment and supplies, from wet suits to oxygen tanks to lights. Here are some top terms in regarding to divers equipment supplies and excursions.

  • Regulators – Also called a pressure regulator, this device is needed in scuba diving to reduce pressurized gas to an ambient pressure, delivering it safely to the diver via a hose or cylinder. A demand valve is just one part of the regulator.
  • Dive Logs – Divers use these to record their diving excursion details. Whether computer based or written, a dive log may contain such information as location, date, time, dive profile, air usage, and water conditions, such as temperature and current.
  • Full Face Mask – As opposed to a half face mask, the full face mask gear protects the diver’s entire face from cold water and debris, plus it secures a constant gas supply.
  • Snorkels – A curved hose-like apparatus with a mouthpiece that allows a snorkeler to breathe air from the surface while observing underwater fish and other items of interest. A snorkel is usually used in a shallow area of water, along with flippers and a face mask.
  • Gauges – Crucial devices that alert the diver to changes in pressure and temperature, such as a submersible pressure gauge.
  • Dry Boxes – Boxes or even bags used by divers to keep essential gear items such as wallets, watches, and cell phones dry while submerged underwater.

    If you like to scuba dive, or swim underwater, you may want to find a local supplier so that you can buy your equipment. Having reliable gear is essential to diving, as a pleasant excursion can quickly turn into an emergency rescue situation if your equipment fails. Most scuba suppliers will have a variety of aquatic gear to choose from, and it is wise to get gear that uses the latest and newest technology. Some essential equipment includes an oxygen tank so you can breathe, a regulator so you can track air and water pressure, and of course a mask and fins. It may also be a good idea to take a waterproof watch on your trip so that you know how long you have been in the ocean. Depending on where your excursion takes you, you may want to bring along some extra supplies. For example, on a cave dive you should bring lights, and on a treasure hunt adventure you should bring a bag to collect anything of value that you discover. If you are remaining in shallow, clear water, you could also consider snorkeling instead, which allows you to breath via a tube that sticks up out of the water. You do not need to be certified, and you may save some money on buying or renting gear. No matter what you have planned for your trip, a vacation on the sea is a relaxing way to spend the day. Perhaps you could also take part in other water sports, or even just work on your tan while taking in the gorgeous scenery.
