General:

FireDiveGear.com provides you with high quality gear for fluorescence diving primarily for the small budget, with built-to-order gear for the same purpose to best suit your individual needs, and of course with lots of information and tips around fluorescence diving.

See further below on this page for an overview of products we offer.

See the page about technology for an explanation of how the products listed below work and interact.

Our philosophy:

Our most important motivation is to help you to experience the stunning and fantastic world of underwater fluorescence.

We aim to be less expensive and yet to offer better value than other manufacturers.

Contrary to most other vendors we experiment a lot and test our own gear extensively in order to fine-tune it for optimal results.
See for example our collection of beamshot videos.
We do this out of passion for underwater fluorescence and for fun, never mind the costs.
This would simply be too expensive for other manufacturers to do.

R E A D    M E    F I R S T:

The state-of-the-art technique for observing underwater fluorescence uses blue light, not ultraviolet (UV) or black light (see UV vs. blue for the reasons why).

The minimum equipment you will need in order to observe underwater fluorescence is: (1) a blue light dive torch and (2) a yellow mask filter
(because unlike UV, blue light is not invisible to the human eye; without the filter you will therefore not be able to see the fluorescence).

(3) A mask strap wrapper is highly recommended, and for photography or filming you will also need (4) a camera filter.

When using strobes you will also need (5) strobe filters. See the (6) order page for information about placing an order.

Please note that our torches and filters are carefully tuned to complement and match each other's properties.
Mixing fluorescence diving equipment from different manufacturers is therefore likely to give frustrating results.

Filters:

Barrier filters:

Mask filters: (2)

Standard mask filters:

 
[Standard Mask Filter]
 
[Standard Mask Filters]

Order the following standard mask filters by brand and model name of your mask, or download the outline of our most generic mask filter (this is the same as the Aqualung Look mask filter), see photo on the left; print it without rescaling and check it against your mask to see if it fits (this filter has the largest surface area of all and should fit the greatest number of masks, except maybe those masks whose nose pocket is very broad, or single-lens masks).

  • Generic
  • Aqualung Look
  • ScubaPro Cool Vu
  • ScubaPro Crystal Vu+
  • ScubaPro Orbit
  • ScubaPro Scout
  • ScubaPro Solara
  • ScubaPro Solo
  • ScubaPro TruFit
  • SubGear
  • Tusa Liberator
  • ...

Includes standard rubber band strap with clips (see photos on the left).
Other straps (e.g. Velcro straps) are available upon request.

Price: $25 / €25 per piece.

A mask strap wrapper (3) is highly recommended, because without it you will almost certainly lose your mask filter in no time (speaking from our own dire experience)!

Custom mask filters:

How to submit your mask shape for a custom cut mask filter:
[Mask Outline]

Step 1:

On a piece of paper, draw the outline of your mask (see example image on the left).

Step 2:

Write the make and model of your mask inside the outline (see example image on the left).

Step 3:

In two places (one vertical and one horizontal), use a ruler and draw two scales (see example image on the left).

The scale can be in inches or metric but it is important to make a mark at zero and another at 6 inches or 15 cm. It is very important to include this. Some scanners, some printers, and some software will "scale" the image up or down to fit the format. This wreaks havoc at our end when trying to do the laser artwork. By placing accurate scales on your page, we can then use our software's scaling features to properly size the image in the laser.

Step 4:

Scan the image and save it as a PDF document.

Step 5:

Submit the saved PDF document via email to firedivegear@gmail.com.

Price: $35 per piece.
The same principles apply of course to cut-to-measure filters for cameras, strobes and torches, or mounts.

Accessories:

Mask strap wrappers: (3)

[Mask Wrappers #1]
 
[Mask Wrappers #2]

Mask strap wrappers are made from fluorescent neoprene and serve multiple purposes: wrapped around the filter's and your dive mask's straps at the same time, they prevent you from losing the filter during the dive. Since the wrappers are equipped with Velcro along one edge, they can be opened and closed easily, without having to detach the mask's and filter's straps every time. Wrapped around the filter when stored or traveling, they protect the filter against scratches and other damages. Thanks to their different fluorescent colours, they can also be used to identify divers or buddy teams (with the same colour) at a glance during a fluo-dive.

Available colours: fluorescent orange, fluorescent green.

Price: €10 per piece.

Note: temporarily out of stock (new supplies expected to be delivered around end of April 2014).

Velcro straps:

[Velcro Straps]

Velcro straps (for mask filters) can be more comfortable to handle (i.e., faster and easier to adapt in length, especially under water) than the standard rubber straps. However, the Velcro straps are less elastic than the standard rubber straps, only the neoprene middle part is slightly stretchable.

Available colours: blue, yellow.

Price: €5 per piece.

"Goodman handle" straps:

[Goodman Handle Straps]

Dual torch holder - here with a white (Intova iMini) and a blue torch (Mini BlueFlame).

Price: available upon request.

Flippable magnifying glass:

[Flippable Magnifier 1]
 
[Flippable Magnifier 2]

"MagFlip" visor - flippable magnifying glass (for macro photography). Available in 1 to 2.5 diopters in .25 steps. Anything other than 2.5 (stock item) is a custom order (price available upon request), which takes 3 weeks to complete.

Price: $100 per piece (2.5 diopter).

Fluorescent slate:

[Fluorescent Slate]

NEW:
Fluorescent slate photographed under varying lighting conditions; white light, blue light and blue light with a yellow barrier camera filter.

This slate is very handy to have when practicing your photo techniques and getting your camera gear ready for a fluo dive, because you can play with and optimize your settings out of the water where it is much easier.

The photos on the left are also meant to drive the point home that when fluo diving, one needs to be very aware of one's surroundings because the visual acuity is dramatically diminished.

Price: available upon request.

Fluorescent markers:

[Fluorescent Markers]

Fluorescent markers can be used to mark points (e.g. corals) of interest during the day, in order to make it easy to find them back at night. Particularly helpful in scientific surveys.

Price: available upon request.

Muck sticks:

[Muck Sticks]
 
[MuckStick1]
 
[MuckStick2]

NEW:
Various "muck sticks" in configurations with and without T-handles (to prevent poking your hand) and with torch and/or laser pointer mounts (e.g. for the Mini BlueFlame torch).

Available in 304 stainless steel or 6061-T6A aircraft aluminum. Price depends on style and customer specs.

The muck stick with laser has been requested by dive guides and divemasters who lead groups of divers on a tour, and who often will point to some object or creature with their hand and everybody will wonder what he or she is actually pointing at.

The muck stick itself is useful for pushing oneself away from any objects if current gets one too close and touching them with the hands should be avoided (e.g. in order to avoid damage to the corals, or to protect oneself, e.g. from fire corals).

The stick may also be useful for jamming into the sandy bottom to hold one's position in a mild current when trying to stay stable to take a photo.

The configuration with a mini dive torch can either be used at night or to light up a dark area such as under an overhang during the daytime.

Price: available upon request.

Reef hook:

[Reef Hook]

Reef hook made from 304 stainless steel, 1 meter long. Controversial item: Some people say it is a horrible tool that destroys the reef, others say it is a valuable tool that saves lives and protects the reef. This may depend on how you use it.

Price: $18 per piece.

Protective hood:

[Aeroskin Hoods]

Nylon spandex hoods for protection (e.g. against sunburn and mosquito bites, or against cold, as part of a layered system) from Aeroskin California.

Limited stock of quantities and colors. Please indicate your top 3 preferred colors/designs and we'll do our best to honor. Of course we will inform you first if your choice should not be available.

Price: $18 per piece.
