Next week, while visiting Kamalame Cay, I will take my first dive towards PADI certification. The private island resort, on which we honeymooned early last year, boasts a PADI rated dive center and a nearby sea of options that would excite even the most experienced underwater enthusiast. But more on that later. This week, in an effort to get the corners of my mind out of the office and in to the depths ocean, I began to think about what to pack. Here’s a round-up of my stylish, yet practical, dive essentials – many of which are customizable.

1. GoPro’s Hero4 Black. ($499.99)

2. Unlike a bikini, I will not need to constantly readjust this one piece swimsuit from Heidi Klein. ($270.00)

3. Constructed from water-proof vinyl, a Lolo bag with compartments to hold my camera, mobile phone and GoPro accessories. ($48.00)

4. From embroidery colour, to strap colour, to the addition of the T7E logo, my favourite customizable dive bag. ($129.95+)

5. At 200 feet iGills will allow me to take photos and videos with confidence that my housing will never leak and my depth and time will always remain top of mind. (299.99)

6. An Island Company beach blanket to wrap myself in post-dive. ($65.00)

7. A custom embroidered zip tag that will make my wetsuit easier to find in the pile. ($12.00)

8. Post certification I plan to reward myself with a custom hand-painted wetsuit from Sirensong. ($180.00+)

9. A long-sleeve cardigan that absorbs water quickly and dries just as fast. ($279.00)
