hey guys, i’m really interested in becoming a scuba diver.

so how much does getting certified cost?
and if i wanted to buy the scuba gear how much would that cost?

I did my PADI open water about 8 years ago. At the time it was about £300 for the course. After that to acquire all the gear probably cost me about £2000+ (but I mainly bought my equipment new). You could save money by buying second hand but be sure to get it serviced before you use it. In the early days you can hire your equipment and buy your own as you go along. To do further courses after the open water varies from £200 – £500. It’s not cheap but if you catch the diving bug then the cost doesn’t matter.
