Shipping & returns



Enjoy FREE SHIPPING on orders of $100.00 or more. That’s right, FREE. You know what you can get for $100.00 Tons of stuff, and then you proceed to checkout and pay nothing for shipping.**

** The majority of items sold on will qualify for this free shipping offer. Unfortunately, there are a few exceptions because the carriers are super expensive to move items of oversized weight or dimensions like tanks, lead, hookahs, large dry boxes, large gear bags, longer spearguns, long fins, etc. Free shipping offer is for ground shipping (USPS, FEDEX or UPS) within the continental 48 United States only. Minimum purchase of $100.00 is calculated prior to any taxes (where applicable). If an item which was originally shipped free is returned, the original shipping amount will be deducted from the refunded amount. Items purchased through Amazon, PayPal and Google checkouts are not eligible for free shipping. The ground shipping cost for any of the exceptions will be clearly shown prior to checkout. Orders will be shipped within 1 to 2 business days, pending credit card approval and availability of items in stock to ship. This special free shipping offer may expire at any time.

International Shipping

For international shipping, we will email an international shipping quote for approval prior to shipping your order. Please be advised that any customs, taxes, or duties may be charged directly to you upon entering the destination country. Once the shipping quote is approved, we will add the additional shipping charges on to your order and ship out the following business day. Shipping typically takes 6-10 business days, but can be delayed due to customs.

Expedited Shipping

For an additional charge, you can choose 2nd-Day or Next-Day Air. 2nd-Day Air guarantees delivery on the second business day after the order is shipped. Next-Day Air guarantees delivery the next business day after shipment. Business days are Monday-Friday, excluding federal holidays within the United States. For in-stock items to ship the same day you order, the order must be submitted by 1:30 PM EST.

The following items are subject to a 20% restocking fee:

The following items may not be returned or exchanged.

  • Bathing suits, mouth pieces, and snorkels are items of personal hygiene and for health reasons may not be returned once used or worn. Items that have never been worn or used in original packaging or with original tags attached are never a problem to return.
