Kit Hire

Early reservations recommended!

Underwater Explorers has an extensive range of diving equipment for hire throughout the year. All of our rental equipment is regularly serviced and maintained. From wings to jacket style BCDs, 7mm wetsuits to dry suits, glove and hoods to fins and regulators, twinsets and stage bottles --  we have almost everything to make your diving trip worthwhile whether you need it at the last minute or reserve in advance. Due to hygiene concerns we do not hire out masks, wetsuit boots and thinsulates. If renting one of our membrane dry suits please ensure you bring appropriate thermal protection to wear underneath.

Booking and Cancellation Policy

A booking is made once the equipment being rented is paid for in full by phone. Divers are then required to fill in a rental form at checkout in the store. We have a 7 day cancellation period in that if you let us know a minimum of 7 days before "check out" date we will issue a full refund. As the equipment you booked and paid for will be reserved for you and not rented out, any cancellation has to be made 7 days before - to qualify for a refund. Please note: If a booking requires any gas fill other than air, the listed price of nitrox and/or trimix will also be charged at checkout. Our current gas fill prices are listed on our Gas Price Page .

Try before you buy

You can also rent or try before buying select Halcyon and Light For Me torches, Halcyon single and twin tank wing systems, front entry drysuits (where available in appropriate size) and Scubapro, Halcyon or Apeks regulators. This means the full rental fee will be refunded to you if you decide to make a purchase within an agreed upon period after your trial. Read more about Try Before You Buy.
