Hire Kit at Vobster Quay





NOT GOT ALL YOUR
OWN DIVE GEAR?






We understand that not everyone can afford to buy or justify the expense of owning a full set of diving equipment.

That doesn't mean you can't dive, though - with our select range of high quality rental equipment available for hire to certified divers, you can take the plunge without denting your wallet. Whether you dive a single cylinder and BCD or you're a budding techie that likes to 'double up' with a twinset, we can help.

Dive equipment can be rented either individually - forget your fins? Not a problem! - or as a complete 'package'. As you'd expect, all our rental equipment is serviced regularly and is available in a variety of different sizes. A selection of semi-dry wet suits and - for divers with a suitable certification - tough membrane drysuits and warm undersuits are also available for hire.

We also offer a selection of demonstration lights from LFM (Light For Me) that can be taken in for a FREE test dive. These items tend to be extremely popular - especially at weekends - so please contact us in advance should you wish to try them for yourself.

For divers who hold a suitable certification, we are one of the very few dive centres in the UK that offer the Hollis Explorer Sport Rebreather to hire.

Please note that hire equipment is only made available for use on site at Vobster Quay - we do not hire equipment for use at other locations.

It’s always a privilege to be part of someone’s first diving course, helping them to learn the skills required to have fun and stay safe under the water, learning in the manner that comes most naturally to each of us as individuals.

This week though, has been extra-special and something that I’m personally very proud to have been involved with. Six of Great Britain’s finest, supported by the amazing Help for Heroes Official organisation, took on the challenge of learning to dive and approached it with the attitude, determination and humour...

It's not the most exciting image in the world, but it shows the dual redundant boilers now powering the Vobster changing room showers.

The original system was designed to cope with the occasional shower, not six heads running at 3 litres per minute all day! We now have enough capacity, in... [more]
