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.

HUMBER 3D MODEL.

After a week of scientific diving talks and exploration, it's time to get back to project Vobster. Marcus has produced not one, but two models here. the highlight is the rarely visited Humber out 'beyond the jesters'. It's a cool dive, 25m ish and easily found from the crushing works.... [more]

Proud to have contributed to the diving and training of ex Vobster staff member Rachael Priest, from burger van to dive master to IANTD tech diver on scientific diving projects at Heriot Watt. Cheers Tim

We're loving this gorgeous photo of our new Sea King helicopter captured by pro underwater photographer Jason Brown of BARDOCreative. This and many other stunning images were taken last month for a feature all about the fascinating history of our new attraction in the new issue of Scuba Diver magazine - pick up your free copy in the Vobster shop!

Keep the impact of your activities down - save plastic, clean the oceans and buy gear from already recycled plastic. Thanks for showing the way Fourth Element.
