Default How much have you spent on diving?

equipment and all.. im just curious to put a round-about figure to how much it actually costs over time to enjoy this hobby.



What I've got so far:



Mask, Fins, booties, snorkel + OW cert class = $425



Genesis GS 2000 octo Regulator, Genesis ReAct Pro Dive Computer, Seaquest Balance BC, Dive Knife, Gloves = $410



Wet suit = $40



Two 3AL 80 Tanks = $200



Just spend another $100 on Nitrox certification class.





So for me, thats about $1175 in mt first two weeks of diving.



I think I got a great deal on some of this stuff as it was all used and in very good condition.

As cheap or expensive as you want it to be.

I probably only have around $1k in total money that I have spent on all my gear and to get certified. Most of my gear is used previously or handed down to me.

Default RE: How much have you spent on diving?

asking for a preference on Regs is like asking Blondes or Brunettes...the answer is yes. Just kidding, there are some outstanding regs out there. Atomic, Scubapro, Apex, Posiedon, just to name a few. I personally prefer the Atomic M-1 because it is a balanced piston 1st stage that is environmentally sealed and O2 ready. It's not the only one of its kind, but it has taken all the abuse I can throw at it and more and it is still firing on all cylinders.
