The easiest way for you determine our domestic or international shipping costs is to simply add your product choices to the shopping cart, select a checkout option, and then enter the ship to address to see all the shipping options available and their exact cost.
Keep in mind that once you reach a minimum order value that depends on the destination, Super Saver shipping for most orders is FREE.

Yes, once you reach a minimum order value that depends on the destination, the Super Saver shipping option for most orders is FREE. If your order qualified for free shipping then your order may qualify for a free pre-paid return shipping label. The only exceptions are a very few items clearly identified in our product description details as not qualifying for free shipping or pre-paid return shipping.
The answer ultimately depends on the carrier, service level and delivery address. Orders with paid shipping and all Items marked In Stock, paid-in-full before 2:00 PM Eastern Time, usually ship the same day, weekends and holidays excepted. Most other orders ship within 1-2 business days. All orders ship from Pompano Beach, Florida USA and we'll always e-mail a tracking number when the order has shipped.
Most domestic US packages shipped via US Postal Service Priority Mail will arrive in 3 business days or less to the 50 states, and a variable length of time to the U.S. Territories. UPS Ground delivery is typically 2 business days (Southeast US) to 5 business days (Northwest US) depending on the address . Expedited UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS Next Day Air receive priority order processing from Dive Gear Express and provide date-guaranteed delivery. The day of shipment does not count as a business day, and no weekend or holiday delivery.
Most international packages shipped via USPS Priority Mail International will arrive, regardless of the destination country, between one and two weeks time. Delays beyond two weeks are rare but can be longer for remote destinations. The usual reason for the late arrival of your package is a delay clearing your local customs inspection. Packages shipped via DHL Worldwide Express, which includes expedited customs clearance, typically take less than a week, often as little as two or three business days.
Most FREE Super Saver orders ship within three business days. We'll pay the charges for Super Saver shipping and your order will be delivered within about 1 to 2 weeks for Standard and often within 3 business days to many locations for Expedited, after your order ships. Please select a paid shipping choice if your order is time-sensitive, requires door-to-door tracking during transit, or to choose a specific carrier.

Yes and no; this simple question has a complex answer because there is no widely recognized scuba diving standard for what constitutes suitability for oxygen service. Hypothetically, the equipment we sell could be used with oxygen if we describe it as Nitrox Ready, otherwise you should assume air only service. However from the point of view of stringent U.S. aerospace guidelines and Compressed Gas Association handling standards for oxygen, nothing in general use in recreational diving is suitable for oxygen service.
The reason why we can't give you a simple unqualified "YES" is related to the associated risks when the circumstances of use are completely outside our control. To dive using oxygen requires you to make an informed decision to accept for yourself the risks of handing the oxygen. Our article About Oxygen Disclaimers will help you to form your own opinion about the answer.
