4 Do's & Don'ts of Packing for a Scuba Tour, Honolulu, Hawaii

Travelers and locals alike enjoy exploring the waters around Hawaii by taking scuba tours. These underwater adventures offer divers a chance to see amazing aquatic life up close. If you’re going on a tour soon, here are four packing do’s and don’ts to make your scuba experience the adventure of a lifetime.

Do:

Wear Proper Swimwear

Most scuba tours require attendees to wear wetsuits to protect their skin from the sun and help maintain adequate body temperature. Although this will be provided, bring swimwear that’ll be comfortable to wear underneath a wetsuit, like a bikini that fastens without ties as the strings can get caught in the zipper. Males can opt for fitted trunks, two-pieces, or one-pieces that won’t bunch underneath the wetsuit for a more comfortable fit.

Use Reef-Safe Sunscreen

While on the scuba tour, you’ll view wildlife and enjoy the incredible natural beauty of the ocean, so it’s essential for divers to be respectful of the delicate ecosystem. Scuba tour participants can use a reef-safe sunscreen formulated without harmful chemicals, like octinoxate or oxybenzone, that contribute to coral bleaching.

Don’t:

Worry About Equipment

Bring Valuables

Leave car keys, wallets, watches, and other irreplaceable or expensive items on land to reduce the risk of potentially losing them in the water. If you plan to bring a camera with you to capture the experience, be sure it’s sealed in a waterproof case.
