I used to rent my BCD and other equipment when I traveled. Next time I will own it. Had two major equipment failures with rented equipment in two years so never again. Once I was about a mile from shore when my gauge showed I had plenty of air but ran out. Tide was going out and had to swim back with full gear. That was when I understood why the certification required so much swimming and treading water!!!Do to corona virus shop is closed but it will be open any day now.
You can start with academic part right now so by the time you complete this part we will have class schedule.
go to www.scubanewyork.com > learn to dive > open water > e-learning then will take you to PADI website where you will purchase academics and you can start your underwater journey today.
lucky you PADI offers nice discount now.
I don’t recommend buying any equipment online.
you will purchase everything you need at Scuba NY
Personal equipment is very important so need to fit properly. ( Scuba NY match the internet price so no worries for overpaying)
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
