  • Emergency phone number

Must haves for your carry-on bag

Dive planning 

  • Check all your equipment

  • Logbook
  • Bring extra mask fog
  • Bring spare mask
  • Prepare your new mask (use overnight toothpaste process)

The vacation is over list

  • Double check all your families dive gear, BC, fins, mask, snorkel, wetsuit. This is a no-brainer but this assumes you will lose something if you don’t go through the process of doublechecking all the gear.
  • Airline tickets: Check-in online the day before

At home

  • Thoroughly rinse and all gear and allow for proper drying
  • Repeat gear doublecheck
  • Put dive gear in an organized space (This makes the next dive trip easier to prepare for)
  • Replace used items for spare parts and medical supplies
