Our Equipment

We are pleased to offer quality equipment in excellent condition to any divers that do not have their own gear. We carry a wide range of sizes and options so you will find a comfortable fit.

We have Cressi, Mares and Scuba Pro BCDs for rent in all standard sizes, some of which have weight integrated systems. All of our regulators are Scuba Pro. We have been an authorized Suba Pro dealer since 2005. 

 

We carry masks to fit a variety of face shapes including smaller sized masks for children. We also have lots of different types of snorkels, however with the seas being generally so calm here there is no need to use one unless you wish too. We have closed foot fins in all sizes as well as a selection of open foot fins and booties.
