Marine biology is the study of plants and animals that live in or near saltwater. People who are interested in marine biology can appreciate a gift that reflects their interest. Whether your gift recipient is already a marine biologist or someone who is just developing a passion for it, there are gifts to suit every level of interest. You can find a wide variety of marine biology gift options, no matter what your budget.
Scuba Diving Watch
A scuba diving watch is an excellent idea for someone interested in marine biology. Chances are good the recipient already spends a significant time underwater so she will need a watch that is waterproof. You can purchase scuba diving watches online. While many cost under £65, you could easily spend five times that amount, depending on brand name and watch features.
There are a variety of DVDs about marine life. One example is "The Blue Planet- Sea of Life" which is a five-disc set. Those interested in marine biology would appreciate the DVDs as a way of gaining new information as well as for sheer entertainment. The DVDs are available online, such as on amazon.com, as well as in stores.
Scuba diving requires a lot equipment including wet suit, fins, snorkel and oxygen tanks. One option is to purchase all the basic equipment your gift recipient could use. A more budget-friendly option is to buy only one or two pieces. Scuba gear is available for purchase online, sporting goods stores and at stores that specialise in diving equipment. If you need help, go to a store that specialises in diving gear and ask to speak to a knowledgeable sales clerk for help. If you're still unsure, another good option is to buy a gift token.
An underwater camera is a wonderful gift for those who want to document their experiences in the water. There are many cameras made specifically to resist water and pressure. Some are basic while others are more elaborate and come with a significant amount of features. Depending on those features, underwater cameras range from £130 to £390. They are available for purchase from websites, such as on leisurepro.com, or in some camera stores.
Stay at an Underwater Hotel
While this may be a pricey gift, it can be the experience of a lifetime. There are several underwater hotels located across the globe, including the Jules Undersea Lodge in Florida and the Poseidon of Fiji. While your gift recipient stays dry and relaxes indoors, he can watch marine life swim by his hotel window. A note of caution: your budding marine biologist may have to go through a scuba diving course in order to be able to get down to his hotel. Also, while the hotel may deliver food to a guest through a hatch of sorts, a guest could be left responsible for bringing his own.
