If you have some doubts about what exactly you need to go diving, what gear is more essential and how much you will spend on it, you have come to the right place.
After testing and reviewing lots of products, I thought it would be a good idea to create a list of the best scuba diving equipment to help people make the right choice when buying.
The Best Scuba Diving Gear List
The Atomic Aquatics Venom provides a comfortable face seal and wide panoramic view in a frameless single-less design.

The Best Scuba Diving Gear List. Accessories
The Olympus OM-D-E-M5 Mark II takes stunning underwater photos. When it comes to cameras, there are some really expensive options, but I think the Olympus M5 has the best quality/price balance. Then you will need a good housing like the next model by Ikelite.

Hi Mokel, thanks a lot for such a great list! I’m a new diver and this helps a lot. Speaking of cameras for scuba diving, do you have experience with the SeaLife cameras? How does it compare with the Olympus one? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
Hi Paul, the Sealife cameras have a pretty good quality. The main advantage is that you can take them underwater without a housing. Other models on the list like the Sony has a better photo quality, but you need a housing, and they are expensive. Cheers!
