OUR DIVE SHOP'S EQUIPMENT AND COMPRESSED AIR
Our equipment includes Sherwood and Mares regulators and BCD's. All our gear is less than 4 years old and is regularly maintained by our qualified staff. We offer complimentary equipment rental while y0u are diving with us. Our aluminium tanks are all within their hydrostatic test dates and are visually inspected and serviced on a regular basis. We also have smaller tanks for children and 100 tanks for divers who breath a little more air!
Our compressed (breathing) air is filled by a Bauer K14 compressor. As a PADI 5 Star Resort, we send air samples to the USA every quarter to undergo a range of tests by Trace Analysis laboratory. Each quarter we are issued with a Certificate of Air Worthiness which is on display in the dive center. This means that you can dive in the comfort of knowing that the air that you are breathing is free of oil particles and other contaminants. We have a range of dive accessories for sale such as logbooks, masks, dive books and dive site guides, mask straps, clips, and defog.
