For any tours w here equipment wil l be rented, facilitators must ensure that several pieces of safety equipment are available for each participant. Please notify us when you book a tour if you would l ike us to supply any of the following scuba gear for you. We are happy to do so at a reasonable price. Equipment 1. Air Tank 1.

Examples: Aluminum, steel, pony 2. Buoyancy Compensator 1. The buoyancy compensator controls the overall buoyancy of the diver so t hat descending and ascending can be controlled. 1.
