  • Selecting the right equipment can be daunting, whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned pro with years of experience.  The most common complaint we hear from divers is that the equipment they currently own will not allow them to progress with their diving to allow them to explore further without the substantial costs involved in replacing a great deal of their kit.

    Selecting the right gear is about making choices based, not only, on what you want to do now but also in the future; kit that will allow you to progress with minimal further expenditure and minimal changes to your existing equipment setup.  Our staff have decades of experience with a huge range of gear and are here to help you get the right advice and the right equipment from the start.  Check out the equipment articles on this site for more imfomation on specific recommendations.

The Dive Club

The Dive Club was set up to create a friendly environment in which divers could get together to organise dive trips and social events.  The club does not involve itself in any training activities but is an ideal environment for newly qualified divers to meet like-minded people and get some diving experience.  They organise, on average, at least one trip per month with two weekends per month being the norm during the summer months.
