Adult Semi-Dry Suits

We have a stock of high quality 8mm semi-dry suits which have the benefit of thicker neoprene and an attached hood. They are much warmer for snorkelling than our wetsuits and require no additional training. These are suitable for those diving on our tours or for those that are particularly worried about being cold when snorkelling.

Childrens' Gear

We have a full range of kids’ snorkelling gear. The suits are 5/3mm and are thinner than the adults, so we normally bring two suits for them as kids tend to get colder quicker. Please choose a suit based on their own body size and we will bring one more of the next size up.

GoPro Camera

We also have a GoPro 4 Black camera for hire.

  • Shoot stills or video
  • Comes with a handle grip and lanyard.

You need a 32 GB Class 10 UH3 Micro SD card (e.g San Disk Extreme) so you can take your footage away. These are available from us in case you forget.

Unfortunately, DVD/CDs don't have enough storage capacity for the photos and videos, as the cameras shoot high-quality files.

Weight Belts

A weight belt is not required for snorkelling. If you are an experienced snorkeller or free diver and would like to hire a weight belt, then please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

SCUBA Equipment

We carry a full range of scuba gear for hire including the following:

  • Zeagle/Sherwood BCD's
  • Apeks Regulators
  • 10/12L Steel Tanks
  • Weights/ Weight Belts
  • Torches (if required)

When diving on our 3 or 4 day trips we usually dive at the fantastic pier which has max depth of around 8m, see more about this dive here. However, for more information on diving opportunities then see here.

If you are coming for a full week or a specific dive trip, then we have 8mm semi-dry suits however for serious divers we would advise that a drysuit would be best (we only have a few of these and they are not normal hire stock).
