In scuba diving, the first time is always memorable.

Taking your first breath underwater. Seeing a shark for the first time (well all the time really). Almost running out of air. Yikes! Having a confusing underwater conversation with your buddy.

And of course, buying scuba gear for the first time!

Renting vs Buying

In the past, I had always rented scuba gear because of several reasons. First, I only went scuba diving a few times each year. Second, I was strapped for cash and wasn’t sure if it worth spending that much money on something I might barely use. And lastly, I was a “lazy” traveler and I didn’t really want to lug scuba gear with me while traveling around the Philippines!

But then one Christmas, my aunt gave me a wetsuit. Oh, what joy I felt of having my own gear! It made me think twice that maybe having my own stuff would actually be awesome.

Buying my first gear!

One day, a friend invited me to go gear shopping because she could get a discount from one of the dive shops in Manila. Well, how can I say “no” to that?

So off we went and I decided to gift myself a pair of booties and fins! Woohoo! My first scuba purchase!

I didn’t buy everything in one go.

Little by little, I bought my scuba gear to complete my current set up. Some were bought locally. While some were bought abroad. Some were completely brand new. While others were purchased second hand.

But each time, was just as special and memorable.

Dive Shops in the Philippines

If you’ve been bitten by the diving bug and now want to invest in your own equipment for scuba diving, well, congratulations! I think buying scuba gear for the first time is such an important milestone for any diver.

What do I get? And where do I get it? What brands are good? Which one should I avoid? What about the warranties or repairs? Which dive shops in the Philippines has the best service?

I’m sure it can be very overwhelming especially with so many options in the market.

Welcome to the exciting and confusing world of purchasing scuba gear!

I personally like researching online and then asking other divers what they use. But it’s actually also helpful to go to the experts a.k.a the dive shop and just ask! So, I’ve compiled a list of the dive shops in the Philippines that may actually help you out better than I can!

If you want to buy dive gear in the Philippines, here is the location map of Dive Shops in Manila, Anilao, Puerto Galera, Palwan, Cebu, Bohol, Dumaguete, Boracay.

PHILIPPINES PACKING LIST:
WHAT TO PACK FOR A SCUBA DIVING TRIP


Philippines Packing List by Diver Bliss

BONUS: 10 Tips in Buying Gear in the Philippines:

  1. Take your time and visit the shops to fit and try on the gear. Often times it might look pretty in pictures. But often, once you fit it, it might not be the right one for you.
  2. Read reviews. Lots of it.
  3. Ask diver friends and instructor for recommendations.
  4. Remember to work within your budget. But also don’t scrimp on gear that is meant to keep you safe and alive.
  5. Join Scuba Diving Gear Buy and Sell Facebook Groups. A lot of divers sell gear so they can upgrade. Others want to get rid of things they no longer use. Keep an eye out for good deals and watch out for online scammers.
  6. Ask your dive instructor to get you a discount. A lot of instructors receive discounts from stores, have them refer you to the shops. Some can get you up to 30% off.
  7. Attend Dive Shows because a lot of dive shops in the Philippines join and offer huge discounts.
  8. Be careful of buying from foreign online shops and having it shipped to the Philippines. It might look cheaper BUT customs might charge you hefty importation taxes.
  9. For high-value items like dive computers and regulator sets, check warranties and after-sales support.
  10. Follow dive shops on social media to get store discount alerts.
