Welcome to Scuba List!
We’re glad you’ve dived in with us!
Scuba List is designed to be a diver’s dream come true. It’s a straightforward site with comprehensive guides to all the best scuba and snorkel equipment on the market right now.
Our team have meticulously researched all the products we’ve looked at on this site, from dive watches to scuba fins and everything else you need to get diving. Our guides have current product recommendations, buying advice and more for all your aquatic adventures.
To write our guides, we’ve consulted our own extensive expertise, and drawn on every resource and review we could find. We wanted to come up with the most helpful guides we could. As divers, we were seeing lots of websites that had lots of information but were hard to read. Likewise, we found plenty of websites that were highly readable, but didn’t have a lot of substance to back it up. We wanted Scuba List to hit a balance right in the middle.
We’ve also designed the site to have something for everyone, whether you’re a first-time diver or an experienced pro. We tried to recommend products in each guide to suit any experience level or budget range.
We know there are lots of review sites out there. We’ve tried to make ours a bit different. We start by taking a comprehensive overview of the market for a given product. We aren’t obligated to recommend any specific brands or products, so we’re able to take an objective look at all the options that are out there. We compare prices, features, and specs for all the options. Then, we start looking at buyer reviews.
As any online shopper knows, buyer reviews can be awfully tricky to decipher. There are lots of mixed opinions and experiences to wade through, and most of us don’t have the time to read through hundreds of testimonials. That’s where the Scuba List team really gets to work. We put in the time and energy to look at every last review we can find. We take a critical approach to reading through buyer feedback. We want to find out why people rated the products the way they did, so we can get a more complete sense of quality beyond a star rating.
In our guides, you’ll find a concise breakdown of all the key features and specs for each recommendation. We’ll talk through what those figures and technical terms mean in real-world terms, so you can get a sense of how a given recommendation will perform for you. We’ve also written up a concise summary of what buyers said about the product, with some helpful advice as to why they rated the way they did.
All of our guides are updated on a regular basis, so you know that all of our recommendations are the best on the market at this very minute. Our team works regularly to make sure we’re up to speed on all the latest innovations and advances.
Happy trails from all of us here at Scuba List!
