Traveling with diving equipment

When going on vacation and traveling with diving equipment, it is important to know the airline's rules regarding the transportation of scuba gear. By calling and asking your travel agent or airline you will know the size and weight restrictions of your diving bag.

The airlines are in the endless battle to reduce their costs of travel and one way to do that is by reducing the bags allowed on planes and any extra bag will include a fee. Some companies will allow diving gear for free while some others will charge you.

So, now you have to take in consideration the weight of some equipment. Diving BCD's, Fins and wet suit are normally what take the most weight out of your diving equipment. Remember that in most cases bags must be up to 23 kilograms (50 lbs), but some airlines may have a lower weight capacity for what they consider sport bags.
