Scuba Equipment Hire

Ooops I forgot my. . .
We’ve all done it, you travel for hours to your favorite dive destination only to realise that you’ve forgotten an essential bit of kit

If you cannot blag from your buddies you’d be taking an early visit to the pub or you’d sit in the car all alone with a thermos of tea whilst everyone else has all the fun.

If this sounds a little familiar or if you simply don’t own a full set of kit yet, the team at NDAC now provide a kit hire service with pretty much everything you could want! more>

..........................

NDAC Dive Equipment Servicing

Regular servicing of your equipment is very important for safe and reliable performance and to ensure your expensive kit has a long life.

To help our customers we are offering an onsite equipment servicing and repair service. For further details of the specific equipment servicing available at the centre and prices please visit our servicing information page. more>
