Ever consider jet ski scuba diving?
If you like to jet ski and also have a passion for scuba diving consider jet ski scuba diving. That is right, consider diving from your jet ski.
Diving from a jet ski offers an affordable alternative for divers interested in the advantages of diving from your own personal watercraft. Diving from a jet ski is somewhat similar in terms of preparation and entry techniques as diving from a kayak.
Like kayak diving, jet ski diving requires a bit of unconventional preparation. In other words, proper preparation for diving from these types small watercraft requires a bit of ingenuity and thinking out side of the box. I say this because there are requirements for storing and transporting scuba gear that may require modification to these watercraft by their owners.
Diving from a jet ski seems to be a trend that is taking off. Many are already doing it.

Jetskiscuba says in a blog post that all you need is your own scuba gear a PWC (personal water craft) and a Dive Cage t o hold the gear.
The secret for how to set up a jet ski for SCUBA Diving. Since PWC are not really engineered to carry the scuba gear, instead of fighting physics to strap the gear to the ski, we recommend building a dive cage that can easily be secured to the ski, and securing the gear into the dive cage. The dive cage is a versatile tool. We have used it for: fishing, trolling, spear fishing, camping, long trips, shade, and sand bar parties! We can customize it to hold fishing rods, spear guns, large or small coolers, extra fuel, beach umbrella, and even camping gear for remote island experiences!
