This will probably be the most expensive part of your equipment, but also the piece of equipment that will stay with you the longest. When choosing your regulator, it’s important to think about what you’re going to do. Will you only do shallow, easy, tropical dives without current, like here on Bonaire? Then a simple, unbalanced regulator will do the work just fine. If you’re planning on diving in cold water or under more strenuous circumstances, then you might want to consider a regulator that is better equipped. Ask your local dive shop for advice. Full regulator sets (1st stage, 2nd stage, octopus, spg) can cost anywhere between $350 and $2000, but you should be able to buy a decent regulator set for less than $600
