Adult Premium Suits

We have a stock of high quality 8mm premimum suits which have the benefit of thicker neoprene, semi-dry seals 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. For the extra money they are very much worth it!

GoPro Camera

We also have a GoPro 8 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) to shoot 1080 (perfect for normal use). If you want to shoot in the the highest spec e.g 4k then you need a 64gb A2 card. Both are available to purchase when you book the hire.

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).
