As it's an active store visited by divers from around the country and world regularly, if we can't make it to the phone for any reason please leave a message and we'll get back to you asap.

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 Apeks single tank wing with backplate and harness is now available as a fully set-up Apeks WTX Single Tank Wing System, all ready to go.

You have two backplate and wing options. Choose from stainless steel or a lighter aluminium backplate. For these fully set up systems, Apeks offers either WTX-D40 wing providing 40lbs lift or the smaller WTX-D30 with 30lbs lift.

Apeks WTX Single Tank Wing System includes

  • Apeks WTX-D40 or WTX-D30 wing with inflator hose
  • Apeks stainless steel or aluminium backplate
  • Apeks Deluxe One Piece Harness (fitted to the backplate)
  • Two Apeks cam bands with stainless steel buckles

Apeks WTX-D30 & WTX-D40 Wing

The Apeks WTX-D Single Cylinder Wings are narrow in design, allowing a cylinder to nest deep inside them.

Single-cylinder wings, often referred to as donuts, are oval-shaped air cells or bladders that are not permanently attached to a harness. While single-cylinder wings have their origins in the realm of technical diving, they are becoming very popular in the recreational community. Not only are these single-cylinder wings streamlined, but due to their shape being a continuous loop, they are very stable underwater. There is no dramatic shift of air from left to right.

Apeks single-cylinder wings are a smart design that allows a cylinder to nest deep inside them. These wings fit nicely with the rest of the Apeks WTX collection of high-quality harnesses, plates and accessories. They can be configured in multiple ways to match the type of diving that you do. As with the rest of the WTX collection, these single-cylinder wings are built from the finest quality materials.

  • K style inflator positioned off-centre so as not to interfere with regulator 1st stage
  • Low profile 16” oval-shaped corrugated hose
  • Apeks Flex inflator hose
  • Safety cable to prevent hyper-extension
  • Low profile flat dump valve positioned in front, lower-left side
  • 2 large drain grommets
  • Centre mesh drain panel
  • Lift capacities: WTX-D30 30lbs / WTX-D40 40lbs

Apeks Deluxe One-Piece Webbed Harness

This simple yet strong Apeks Deluxe One-Piece Webbed Harness can take the load of a fully rigged technical diver. It can be easily customised with the hardware of your choice.

  • 12’ of 2-inch stiff webbing with centre grommet
  • 2” wide crotch strap
  • 6 stainless 2” D-rings
  • 2 neoprene shoulder protectors
  • 2 elastic retaining loops on the shoulders and one on the crotch strap
  • Heavy-duty stainless waist buckle
  • 6 stainless serrated retainers

Steel or Ali Backplate

Apeks backplates are available in stainless steel or aluminium.

Four each upper and lower slots accommodate nylon cylinder cam bands so a single cylinder can be strapped directly to the plate. A series of 4 slots provides lateral stability of the cylinder that traditional two-slot plates cannot.

Three holes at the top of the Apeks Backplate offer a range of height adjustments for the wings and the cylinders. In addition, a corresponding lower centre slot allows for misaligned lower band bolts.

Upper and lower perimeter holes along either side and holes along the bottom allow for accessories mounting. 2" wide crotch strap slot.

  • Aluminium Backplate weighs approx 753g
  • Stainless Steel Backplate weight approx 2.2 kg
