Looking for the perfect gift for your scuba diving or ocean obsessed loved one or friend? Read the list below for inspiration and potential gifts for Christmas presents or birthday presents for your scuba diving obsessed friend. I’ve selected presents for ocean loving people to suit a range of different online shopping budgets.
Scuba Diver Gift: Dive computer (big budget)
This is on my Christmas list this year (hint hint Mum and Dad). When you’ve got more than a few dives under your belt, you may want to start taking more responsibility for yourself underwater. Especially if you are thinking about doing a future divemaster course then consider getting a dive computer. A friend I met on a dive boat personally recommended the Cressi Leonardo dive watch (which she actually received as a Christmas gift!). It is certainly much more budget-friendly than others I have looked at and they have a range of different colours. Compare prices and see the different ranges here on Amazon
Scuba Diver Gift: Books of top dive destinations
I actually bought this as a birthday present for a scuba diving friend. It has incredible photos of dive sites around the world and is definitely an inspiring present for those who love diving.
Scuba Diver Gift: Practical Present
For your scuba diving buddy who has long hair and is sick of getting hair tangled up in the mask straps behind his or her head. Buy them a scuba mask strap cover, I personally love this mermaid style one and am putting this on my Christmas present list. Click on here to compare prices and see other styles.
Eco-friendly Ocean Gift: Scuba Diving Water Bottle
Having seen first-hand the amount of plastic floating in the water while diving in Indonesia last year I am now more of an advocate than ever for cutting down on our plastic consumption. Living in Thailand this is not always easy to do as even buying street food comes in so many different containers and in countries where you cannot drink the tap water, plastic bottled water is the only alternative. However there are now more hostels and hotels offering refills (at a discounted prices) and I always take advantage of this. For anyone who wants to save the environment, consider buying them this refillable water bottle and help save our planet, a small step at a time. It’s a water bottle in the shape of a dive tank!
Scuba Diving Presents: GoPro and accessories (big budget presents)
While the GoPro is definitely a very generous present to receive (click here to compare prices between different GoPros) there are all sorts of extra accessories that can be bought at a cheaper amount for your already gopro obsessed friend. While I already have a selfie stick and a float, I now am after one of these domes for half water and half land shots. Although they are quite large for travelling!
Fun Gifts for Scuba Divers: Small Budget
I love these cute PADI inspired luggage tags for your friend or family member to add to their suitcases or even their fin or BCD bags.
Ocean Lover Present: Fish Book
Thanks to my lovely parents for this great Reef Fish ID book that I received for my birthday last year. The more I dive the more I want to be able to identify the fish I see and to develop my knowledge further. I have this one as I dive around the Indo-Pacific and it actually seems to be more in depth than most I’ve seen on dive boats themselves. Buy it or a similar one here on Amazon.
Scuba Diver Themed Gift for Men or Women: Evolution of Diving T-Shirt
I think these diving themed T-Shirts are a great extra gift to give to anyone who loves diving. I actually bought one for my first ever diving buddy a long time ago and I think it was appreciated. Check sizes and stock here and buy yours today.
Unique Ocean and Beach Fun Gift
If like me, you are whale shark obsessed then you need one of these HUGE inflatable whale sharks in your life! A friend bought one but then she left the island I’m living on and so I had to get myself one!
Ocean Gift: For the Mermaid in your life
Okay, so my awesome sister gave me one of these mermaid fishtail blankets a few years ago and it’s very cosy and perfect for snuggling up on the sofa (especially when you aren’t used to winters in the UK!). It was such a great gift and I was so happy with it! Compare mermaid blanket prices below by clicking on the image.
Ocean Gift: For mermaid lovers on a budget
I love this mermaid quote and who doesn’t love a good mug for their cup of tea or coffee? Ones with wittier sayings are even better. Buy yours here on Amazon.
Scuba Diving Gift: Practical Present
With the same mermaid quote but a notebook version, for the diver who loves to keep a journal of all their diving adventures and dive trips.
Best Practical Gift for People who love the ocean
I will forever swear by these dry bags. They are so useful and handy and I take mine everywhere with me, to the beach, islands, boat trips and even mountains when it might rain. Buy your dry bag here, I think 5 litre is the best size for a day bag.
