Dive Skins are very light, one-piece body suits that are used while scuba diving or snorkeling. They are used in warm water to offer protection from things that might sting you under water or can be used as a bottom layer under a wet suit. The majority of divers use their dive skin as a first layer under a wet suit. Dive skins are important because they protect you from sun and skin abrasion. They also help your wet suit slide on easier. Dive skins are a much better solution than exercise lycra because it is not made of continuous weave. This means that if you snag your dive skin, it will not run the entire length of the suit like exercise lycra but will stay contained in the small portion that was snagged.

Dear friends, We hope you and yours are well and remaining safe during these uncertain times. We’re grateful to our in-store family, many customers and working diligently to remain safe.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, and by order of the Governor of Colorado, “all non-essential businesses are to temporarily close until mid to late April.” Unfortunately, this includes A-1 Scuba.
However, you don’t have to stop thinking about diving. Instead, if you’re new to diving you can begin today with your own online digital manual. Or if you’re already certified you can choose from a large selection of cool SSI online digital manuals including our popular Ecology Specialties (Shark, Ray, Turtle, Marine and Fish Identification) as well as other popular specialties including Stress & Rescue, Nitrox, Night, Deep, Navigation and more. CLICK HERE to learn more.
Once you choose and purchase your online manual, you’ll be sent simple directions on how to create your own MySSI Account. It’s a lot like creating a bank account and it’s FREE ……. for life. Once you create your account we’ll deposit your online digital manual. All you have to do is download it to one or more of your devices (phone, tablet or computer). And get this, they will remain updated for life ……. for FREE! Once things return to a “new normal” (and they will) we’ll contact you and let you know the available dates for the associated course.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this horrific disease. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Your friends, The A-1 Scuba & Travel Center Aquatics Center Team
