Hire Kit at Vobster Quay


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.

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.
