What are the components that I need for scuba diving?

If you want the essential gear needed to dive; Air Tank, Regulator, Bouyancy Compensator, Dive Gauges (depth and pressure), Mask, Dive Watch, Fins and possibly a wieght belt. Instruction/Dive Card highly recommended, as Scuba Diving is hazardous even after leaving the water if the proper precautions are not taken.

First - and most importantly - you will need a certification card. Next, basic snorkeling equipment... mask, fins, snorkel. Finally, air tank, regulator, bouyancy control device and possibly a wetsuit. Additional equipment may include lights, camera, speargun or other specialty equipment. Have fun!

You need a scuba certification or to at least take a class prior to diving. In classes you learn to breath and what to do when your mask fills with water or what to do in an emergency. They also teach bouancy and ascention rates so you do not suffer from compression sickenss.

You will need an air tank and a regulator. Also you need to have a mask and flippers. It is also a good idea to have a divers watch.
