So, you have decided to swim among the schools of fish, sea turtles and coral reefs, and explore all the wonders of the ocean depths. It could be as a fitness sport or a leisure activity. Whatever the reason it is a great decision, one that will surely provide you with amazing and breathtaking moments. However, before you plunge into the ocean depths, there are some important preparations to be made. Of course, most of these will revolve around purchasing and assembling all the important scuba gear and equipment.

When it comes to scuba diving and snorkeling, most people think of flippers and diving masks. Now, while these are perhaps the most important parts, they are not the only ones.
