Other Costs & Equipment

This course requires both knowledge development and in-water training for certification.

Beyond basic scuba equipment, you'll need a digital underwater camera and a computer or other device for downloading and viewing your images. It’s best to use your own camera, strobes, etc. during the course so you can become familiar with how they work. But we do offer you a camera and housing to use for the duration of the course. This is helpful if you want to see what it's all about before purchasing your own underwater photography gear.
