Why Portland?

We’re located on the Isle of Portland (in Dorset) because Portland has been one of the most popular scuba diving locations in the United Kingdom even before we set up operations here back in the year 2000.

On one side, we’re minutes away from the sheltered waters of Portland Marina and Harbour, while on the other, it’s just a brief walk to reach our famous scuba diving destination Chesil Cove and start of the 16-mile-long Chesil Beach.  

Portland’s location makes it ideal for scuba diving, freediving, snorkelling and other surface water sports activities. 

Check out how many wrecks we have around here by clicking on Scimitar Diving's Wreck & Dive Sites chart!

Alongside dive clubs, many instructors and dive schools travel here to train and offer scuba diving certification ranging from open water diver to mixed-gas tech diving or rebreather diving levels.

Whether you’re doing a boat dive from Portland Marina or Castletown or a shore dive at Chesil Cove, Portland is well known for offering many possibilities: Reef diving to wreck diving and night diving, underwater photography or underwater videography. Anything other than cave diving is possible here.

Likely being the best-stocked diving shop in the UK, at Underwater Explorers we offer in-store scuba diving equipment advice and sales, as well as gas fills, to locals and visitors (read About Us).

But... If you’re googling “scuba diving shop near me” like some, look no further, there's DirDirect online.

Here at DirDirect, we list our cutting-edge equipment for worldwide delivery and we’ve got you covered whatever your level of diving: We’re your local dive store wherever you are in the world.

All that with over 20 years of experience especially in technical diving, from training to equipment, advice and sales.

The back-inflated Apeks Exotec BCD Grey is a revolution in diving comfort, functionality and seductive engineering design. The ethos behind Exotec is the synthesis of equipment and diver.

Exotec BCD with an 18kg lift capacity was created to fit like no other BCD and flow with the natural movement of the diver’s body through the innovative BioReact articulation.

Constructed with the usual, exacting Apeks build quality, the Exotec is a paradigm of form and function.

Materials of Exotec BCD

The bladder of the Apeks Exotec BCD Grey is made from the same Armourguard fabric that Apeks uses on their Public Safety Diver products. It is extremely durable and does not absorb water. GripTek fabric keeps the BCD in place both on the surface and underwater.

Waist System

BioReact articulating waist system for maximum comfort and freedom of movement allows the Apeks Exotec BCD Grey to move as you move.

Wrapture Harness System

The Wrapture harness system works in harmony with the BioReact waist. This allows you to walk upright when out of the water with the cylinder weight distributed evenly on your hips. The G-Hook system allows for one-handed opening and closing of the chest strap.

Integrated weights & pockets

The patented SurLock I Mechanical Weight System provides a safe, single-pull weight release in case of an emergency. Each weight pocket can hold up to 4.5kg. Both weight pockets have large folding pockets attached for storing any accessories.

Customise the fit

Multiple adjustments allow you to customise the fit of the Apeks Exotec BCD Grey, which comes in three sizes.

Exotec is modular

The Exotec BCD is designed to be repaired and not replaced. All of the components and straps are modular and can be easily changed.
