Rating: DC800 camera 04/05/2009

I used this on my recent trip to Turks and Caicos. This is a simple to use camera, performed flawlessly and, with the setting set to dive mode, took fantastic pictures. If you dive in less visibility or darker waters, Id recommend adding the external flash.

Rating: Kids Fins 04/05/2009

My 7 year old daughter used these to snorkel on our trip to Turks and Caicos for Spring Break. They worked great, were easy to adjust and were much better than the resort alternatives.

Designed to work with your dive computer, the replacement battery and o-ring is easy to install. Ensure you apply constant pressure when resealing to make sure the ring holding the battery seats correctly.

Rating: Great Bootie for the Price 07/18/2007

The sizes are about a half-size off. I wear a 10 1/2 and the 11s just fit. Id recommend going up a size. These booties are easy to get on and off and you cant feel the fin strap on your heel. While the bottoms are not designed to hold up against coral or surf entries, they are great for tropical boat dives.

Mares Volo Power Adjustable Strap Fins
Rating: Mares-Volo-Power-Adjustable-Strap-Fins Excellent Fins 07/18/2007

Even as a new diver I found the Volo fins to be true to size and very easy to swim with. The bindings made it easy to get the fins on and off both in the water and out. Additionally, I found them to provide a great deal of thrust with minimal effort - the biggest challenge was ascending slow enough! Id buy them again.

Oceanic Ultra Dry Snorkel
Rating: Oceanic-Ultra-Dry-Snorkel Worth Every Penny 07/14/2007

As a new diver, I found this snorkel extremely easy to clear and does not take on water while breathing from it. Just one less thing to think about. Having gear that is easy to use and reliable allows you to focus on other stuff - like enjoying yourself.
