Snorkeling and diving gear has changed significantly in the last few years to make it much more travel friendly. Compact fins combined with lightweight regulators and travel BCs have made it possible to pack high-performance gear into less weight and space.
Entry or mid-priced snorkeling and diving gear is becoming much higher quality – making higher technology diving and snorkeling gear available at an affordable price. Diving gear that previously was considered targeted only at the high-tech diver is now available to recreational divers.
Diving lights have rapidly moved to LED technology, making them lighter, brighter, and longer lasting. There have also been significant advances in underwater and action cameras that also benefit from LED lighting.
Now for a moderate price, a recreational snorkeler or diver can enjoy professional quality and performance equipment which can be used for remarkable diving and underwater photography experiences.
