Here in Hawaii, we’re blessed with great weather all year round. For Hawaiians, the holidays mean sunny skies and warm temperatures, not snowfall or icicles.

Scuba diving in Hawaii during the holidays is one of the best things about living in a tropical climate. While most other people are shivering around the yule log, we can don our swimsuits and hit the water so we can share our holidays with the sea turtles, tropical fish, and colorful coral reefs.

Holiday Scuba Shopping

One of the best (and worst) parts about being a scuba enthusiast is that there’s always new gear that you can buy. From the standard wetsuits to new air tanks, regulators, masks, fins and other equipment, you never have to wonder what to get a scuba diver.

If there’s somebody on your holiday shopping list who is into scuba diving, finding the perfect gift is easy. All you need to do is ask what type of replacement equipment they need or what type of new gear they’ve been eying enviously all year long.

Finding the Perfect Scuba Gift

Asking a scuba enthusiast about what gear they need is always better than guessing. It’s easy to buy something they already have or a particular type of equipment that can’t be used with their existing gear.

If you don’t want to ruin the surprise, here’s an easy way you can find out what they really want without tipping your hand: Engage them in a conversation about scuba diving.

Scuba divers are passionate about their hobby and usually will talk for hours with very little prompting. All you need to do is listen carefully and usually you can find out the precise type of equipment they want or need — including the technical specifications because most scuba divers are gear wonks — within just a few minutes.
