    Hi all. I am new to this forum and could use some help. I am a marine biology teacher in a State of Alaska Boarding High School. We teach 90% Alaska Native students and we have a scuba club. Most of my students are poor and can't afford to buy wetsuits and gear. I have already taken my marine biology class snorkling in the ocean three times. My problem is that we have worn out all of our dive booties. I have been given lots of donations of gear but I just don't get any large size booties. We dive in wetsuits up here and the water is cold so booties without soles and huge holes will not work for us. If anyone knows of sources of good large used booties or money for booties please let me know. Thanks everybody. MartyJ

    Greetings and Aloha. Where at in Alaska? Also you may try posting in our Alaska forum.
    Places like Leisure pro and Scuba toys may be able to offer discontinued booties at rock bottom prices. Good luck!

    It never hurts to call and ask in person for left overs and such. Also hit your fire chief up to do a fund raiser of some sort. Also make sure you tell him it was my Idea. His name is Scott.

    Yeah, ScubaToys.com is a better source than Leisure Pro.
