While I absolutely LOVE my Teric dive computer by Shearwater (affectionately renamed tEric), that’s not what this post is about. Nay, pray you good lads and lasses, this is about your save-a-dive kit and what’s in it!

Zip Ties

zip ties are the duct tape of the scuba world

No matter where you go or how you plan to get there, make sure you have a variety of zip ties. You can probably skip the smallest variety, and TSA may offer you a complimentary cavity search for carrying the big wrist-cuff ones, but a few of everything in between will serve you just right.

These lightweight salvations of the deep will help keep you going when something you’ve used over 500 times breaks. Just make sure you clip off the end nice and close, and maybe even file it down a bit with another nice little tool that you should have, a small nail clipper with attached nail file!

This little guy saved my dives in Arizona this year, and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Maurus C. Logan!

Doc Strand

An eight year Marine Corps veteran, Dr. Strand discovered Chinese medicine as a last resort when recovering from a military related injury. He has since dedicated his life to the practice of medicine; a doctor to all - a healer to many. In recent years he has turned to SCUBA diving as a meditation aid in his quest for ultimate peace. The desire to share that gift led to the creation of Spartan Scuba. Doc’s experiences and travels abroad impact not only his writing style, but his passion for life, scuba, and medicine.
