The holidays are right around the corner and whether you are interested in equipment, experiences, or education, Jupiter Dive Center can help you select the perfect gift for every scuba diver on your list!
Let’s start with the basics. Scuba divers often purchase their own regulator, buoyancy compensator device, computer, mask, fins, and snorkel. Jupiter Dive Center is a platinum Scubapro dealer, and we have everything you need.
Want to make an impression? The G2 dive computer will definitely do the trick. The G2 has an intuitive menu, rechargeable battery (with up to 50 hours on a single charge), easy to read display, a huge 485 MB memory capable of storing dive profiles, pictures, tables and more, and the ability to sync to all your PC, Mac, Android, and IOS devices. It’s available in wrist or console models.
Some of the best gifts are experiences, and traveling to a dream destination to dive is hard to beat. Jupiter Dive Center has several trips planned in 2019, including Dunbar Rock in Honduras, Little Cayman Island, the Solomon Islands and more!
If your special someone has already signed up for a trip, you can still make traveling easier with a new gear bag. Whether transporting equipment from the trunk of the car to the dive boat, or traveling halfway around the globe, the right gear bag makes a diver’s life easier. One of our favorites? The Scubapro Travel Bag—it’s a midsize rolling bag with a removable front backpack. Add the Scubapro Dry Bag 5 to protect any valuables that don’t mix well with saltwater, and your diver will be ready for their dream vacation in style.
Specialty courses focus on different ways divers can enjoy the ocean, and giving the gift of a dive course prepares your diver for new adventures! Jupiter Dive Center offers classes from basic certification to professional divemaster in addition to a wide variety of specialty courses exploring wrecks, navigation, photography, night diving and a host of other possibilities.

Buying a gift doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money and Jupiter Dive Center has plenty of ways to save. Our most popular gift? Trip Cards. The more charter trips you buy in advance, the more free trips you get! Trip cards are available in 5, 10, and 20-dive options. Plus, Trip Cards never expire!
Another way to stretch your holiday budget is to buy equipment that has already been in the water. Every year, Jupiter Dive Center replenishes their rental gear and there are bargains galore on lightly used Regulators, computers, and buoyance compensators. Come on in to see the selection.
Looking for something small but essential? Different types of diving require different gear. Every diver should have his or her own surface marker buoy. Drift diving? A “safety sausage” is required. If your diver enjoys night diving, check out Scubapro’s line of flashlights. Rugged and reliable, they are available in a variety of sizes so that your diver always has a functioning primary and redundant light source! Wreck diving? How about a new reel?
For the mystery reader in your life, Jupiter Dive Center is proud to sell autographed copies of Beached, by Micki Browning. Set in the Florida Keys this award-winning novel is the next best thing to being underwater!
Stuck on what to get for stocking stuffers? Sure, you can pack your loved one’s stocking with gum and lip balm, but how about a new log book, or a container of de-fog? Clips, tethers, straps, and o-rings are way better than sugarplums. These are just a few of the little items that can make the difference between scrapping a dive or having the resources to fix a problem. Inexpensive, but priceless when needed.
So what’s the one thing you don’t want to buy for someone else? A mask. Every individual’s face is different and it’s critical that a mask fits. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t bring him or her into the shop after the holidays to pick one out, or you can just look at our next gift suggestion…
Let’s face it. You can’t go wrong by giving a gift card. Available in any amount, you can tuck it into a stocking, put it in a holiday card, or even wrap it in a box. No need to worry about size or colors. A gift card is always perfect.
No matter the occasion, Jupiter Dive Center can take the worry out of gift giving. So stop in and let our knowledgeable staff help you select the perfect gift!
From all the crew at Jupiter Dive Center, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season.
