We do something a little different here at Scuba Steve's. When you sign up for your Scuba Class we do not require you to buy the personal gear before you start the class. Here’s the way we look at it. You don’t buy a car without a test drive, why should you have to buy your Mask, Fins, Snorkel and Boots before you know what is going to be the best fit for you. There’s not just one mask for everyone. Sure we can fit the mask in the shop but it is not the same as putting it in the water and giving it a real test, the same goes for fins. Not all fins are the same. Some will be easier on the legs, others will produce more power and even more that fall in between. We want you to be educated on the equipment and satisfied with your gear purchase. We give you the option to try many masks and fins while you are taking classes from us. When you make your choice on the gear you will know it is right for you. We have some of the best personal gear packages in East Texas. Our prices are very competitive.
