    I don't know if I'd trust my life to something I got at cash converters but that's just me... If it's just for staying underwater a bit longer then that's fine I guess...

    No you don't. You need a divers ticket to hire kit.

    i dont need anything special, i might be going over to mauritius(spelling wrong i think), any way i just need something to stay under longer so a can catch some fish/ collect coral from there and im gonna be bringing it back. i will be getting the whole permit/importing license but need to find some scuba gear first. i wouldnt trust cash converters!!

    The easiest way is to do a dive course locally, will cost you just short of 2k. Then when you get over there, just hire the stuff.

    Second hand dive equipment is like hens teeth. Have you done a course yet?

    Like Hens' teeth means you are going to battle to find it.

    Well done Gaz, was nice educating you.... I buy my snorkelling stuff from the Dive Factory in Gayle street. Rather learn how to snorkel properly and go deep before resorting to scuba

    I would rather perfect the snorkelling first gaz. You will be amazed how many fish you will catch on snorkel. When on SCUBA, you are a little more cumbersome, and therefore don't catch the buggers all that quickly.

    but by the time i get to a catchable position i need more air, its a real pain in the ass. so i would rather get the scuba gear and not have to kum up for air every 10secs

    Gaz, do the course first then, see if you enjoy it. I know that dive dimension offers night courses.
