We often brag about finding bargains, but we must beware of cheap scuba diving. It is usually much more expensive than it seems.

Cheap Diving Versus Good Value for Money

Cheap scuba diving can mean an unacceptable risk, it can have hidden costs, and even more dangerous, it can involve security failures.

  • Cheap Dive Equipment

It is vital to have good diving gear that allows breathing underwater, protecting your skin, regulating your buoyancy, and swimming, carrying out your dives safely. Scuba gear is going to keep you alive underwater. Do you consider it a good idea to skimp on this aspect?

Not so long ago, a diver told us that he found a cheap diving opportunity including gear. The prices were irresistible. However, as soon as I jumped into the water and inflated the BCD, a muff shot out, and the BCD completely deflated. He had to drop ballast and wait to be picked up by the boat. It did not allow him to be in positive buoyancy. That’s how his cheap diving day ended.

  • Cheap Dive Centers

A diving centers’ goal is to serve scuba divers. A cheap dive center cannot provide the same services as one that offers excellent value for money. That’s the secret,

That is, the ideal is:

  • An unblemished safety record;
  • Competent staff serving divers in their language;
  • spacious and comfortable boats to move to the dive sites;
  • competent dive guides;
  • Experienced boat captains;
  • professional boat crew;
  • supervised facilities to leave your diving equipment or to rent the equipment
  • Compressors for the different air mixtures, including Nitrox;

Are you willing to give up all that for $10 less on a cheap dive?

  • Cheap Diving Courses

You can find cheap dive course offers.

If you are going to start diving and want to do your Open Water Course, you may be tempted by offers of strikingly cheap diving courses. That carries risks.

First, qualified professionals with active credentials are not cheap. So, if the scuba diving course is too cheap, there could be something wrong. Do not hesitate to check the credentials of the Dive Instructors.

Some diving courses that seem cheap do not include the rental of equipment, boats, pools, or other extras. These costs will add up and raise the price.
