* If you don't already have a mask, fins and snorkel you will need to buy these, typical cost: £35 mask, £60 open heel fins with wet boots or £30 full foot fins, £15 snorkel.

When you are ready to move on to the open water training, many people decide to buy at least some of their diving equipment, but hiring is also a viable option. During training you can hire the club equipment for £5 per day, excluding regs, though you will still need a drysuit (so you don't even get wet!). These can be hired from local dive stores for circa £20 per day. Remember you will need to complete at least five dives typically two dives a day over three days.

Anything else: well you'll need to budget for petrol money to get to the training dive sites circa £5 per day. Depending on where we go and if we use a boat you may have to pay an access fee of between £5 and £15 per day, or boat fees. You may also need to refill your cylinder whilst at the dive site, a typical air fill costs circa £3 per fill.
