   Almost all major equipment manufacturers, and many major dive publications,  require, or recommend, that scuba equipment be purchased from an authorized dealer. One that has a storefront and staff to counsel you when buying your scuba equipment. Stop in our store today and check out the most extensive selection of scuba equipment in Northern Nevada.

   Scuba equipment is a life support product and purchasing your own should not be done without a professional's assistance and advice. Tropical Penguins is always happy to help with friendly advice and training for the specific products you are considering purchasing.

   We have reprinted an article from Dive Training magazine that shows the importance of buying your scuba gear at an authorized dealer (thank you Dive Training magazine, the original article can be found here)-

"It is important to buy the right gear for the type of diving you will do, ensure that it fits and is comfortable, be trained in its use and keep it serviced at recommended intervals."

"It is very possible for you to purchase dive gear from non-authorized dealers and not be aware. For example, many Internet sellers acquire the product they sell through gray market (third-party) channels. They may not be authorized to sell or service a particular product, are not trained by the manufacturer, may not ship it assembled, may sell it without the original parts or sell items that have been used or returned."

"If you question whether a particular reseller is an authorized dealer, it's pretty simple. Call the manufacturer directly, or confirm it by using the authorized dealer listings on manufacturers' Web sites." - Dive Training Magazine
