TransPac Really Can Do Any Dive


Some of you  may be familiar with my TransPac promise. “If you think there is a dive that you cannot do on the TransPac contact me directly. I will either tell you or come show you how it can be done.”

My staff brought this video to my attention, proving once again, that the TransPac really can DO any dive. Enjoy. Scuba Sex

  • i do have a quick question about the transpac. would the transpac be a good choice for a harness for a newly certified nacd cavern diver in FL? i’m looking to get into wings soon, but i think that i want to stick to single tank dives for a bit (to concentrate on basic skills before adding a bunch of new gear).

    would the transpac allow me to dive singles, then go to doubles later? is it a good fit for cave diving? which wing would be good (if i’m diving wet in a 5/4)?

  • Hi Dallas,

    The TransPac is a perfect choice – one of the main concerns for any new cavern diver is stability while trying to maintain horizontal body positioning and hovering. Make sure you use a crotch strap with it so you can maximize the stability of your rig with your body.

    The choice of wing depends on your stature and tank selection. A good wing for singles is the Venture…it promotes horizontal trim and can handle any extra weight you need to counterbalance your 5/4 wetsuit.

    Check out our Solution Finder titled “BCD: What type of Dive Rite wing do I need?” – it will give you a better idea what wing will work best for you. Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Lamar -

    thanks for the info! this really helps in my search for new gear quite a bit. do you think the rec wing would be a good fit or will it be harder to dive with singles than the venture?

    i just liked the idea of using one wing for both singles and doubles and maybe getting the dual rec wing for redundant buoyancy (since i’m diving wet). however if the venture is a better fit for singles i may just go with that, and get a different wing when i go to doubles.

  • If you want a dual purpose wing for singles and doubles, then the Rec Wing is the way to go. It is our most popular wing due to the fact it can be used for single tanks or doubles.
