Not only can scuba diving equipment be expensive to buy initially, but it is expensive to maintain too. The money from kit hire goes directly towards the servicing costs for the club’s equipment. Kit hire can be purchased in our shop.

Kit hire is included in the price of your Training Ticket for Ocean Diver and Sports Diver.
