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.

This all-inclusive DIR XDeep Apeks Starter Package includes a fully assembled XDeep Deluxe Zeos Single Tank Wing System, and the much sought-after Apeks MTX-RC Long Hose Regulator set.

It's a great value, future-proof, high-quality package for beginner to advanced divers that can be adapted to twinset diving by adding one more first stage and a doubles wing.

All of our DIR Starter Packages are designed for divers seeking the balanced trim of a rigid backplate and wing combination, paired with the outstanding performance of a long hose regulator set.

  • XDeep Zeos 28lbs or 38lbs Wing with inflator hose

  • XDeep 3D Mesh backplate and shoulder pads

XDeep Zeos Deluxe Wing System

The XDeep Zeos Deluxe system is ideal for those who want the balanced trim of a genuine backplate+wing combination but one easier to get in and out of, similar to the pinch-buckle setup of traditional jacket BCs on each shoulder webbing.

The XDeep Zeos Deluxe Wing System is ideal for divers switching to "wings" from jacket BCs for the first time or those who want the comfort of quick donning and doffing.

Through technical design, constant testing and evolution, the XDeep Zeos Wing is balanced to help achieve a flat and expert trim. The centre of gravity of the gas in the cylinder and the centre of buoyancy of the Zeos are perfectly matched.

As a result, your stability will be significantly better. You will enjoy improved gas consumption, enhanced buoyancy control, and easier finning. No more “sea horse” positions forced by traditional BCDs.

XDeep Zeos Deluxe Wing System features

Super tough Zeos Wing

At the start and end of each dive, the XDeep Zeos Deluxe Wing System holds you high out of the water. The design ensures most of the wing stays underwater, using more buoyancy. This provides extra lift keeping your head and shoulders clear of the waves. Wait in comfort for your pick-up.

Underwater you can eliminate trade-offs and experience perfect trim made simple and easy by the exact geometry of the XDeep Zeos.

XDeep Zeos wing is made of a super-resistant outer shell made from Cordura® 1100 dTEX, so your scuba gear will resist more and last longer. An inner bladder is made of Nylon 440dTEX.

XDeep Zeos wings for single-cylinder diving are available in two sizes: Zeos 38 or Zeos 28. Too much lift can result in oversize and unwieldy wings, especially if you are not the world’s largest diver. Pick the wing that suits your diving.

Backplate and Deluxe Harness

Choose between beautifully engineered steel or aluminium backplates. The Zeos steel backplate eliminates the need for lead at the waist. It enhances your balance and trim, especially in cold water conditions where extra weight is best distributed across your body. The Zeos aluminium backplate works well in warm water diving where the additional weight is unnecessary or if you often travel.

The fully adjustable harness is equipped with tough ITW Nexus buckles made of polyacetal, impervious to salt water and extreme temperatures. Able to be quickly and easily configured to just about any body shape, there is no better way of getting the perfect fit.

Single Tank Adapter

The XDeep Zeos Deluxe Wing System comes complete with a single tank adapter with two cam bands securing all components together.

Apeks MTX-RC Long Hose Regulator Set

The Apeks MTX-RC Single Cylinder Long Hose Regulator Set is designed for the diver that prefers a long hose configuration on a single cylinder. It is also the perfect set-up for the recreational diver looking to transition into twinset diving in the future, as the addition of another first stage creates a twinset regulator configuration.

Combining rugged, military grade engineering with the super-smooth breathing experience that Apeks regulators are renowned for, the MTX-RC single cylinder set dives your way.

Featuring the same freeze-resistant technology enjoyed by the whole MTX-R range, the MTX-RC resists freeflows in even the coldest temperatures, while offering the user the additional flexibility to dial it out for a comfortable breathe in less extreme environments.

All this is achieved using an innovative first stage design that protects the regulator from freezing and a full set of user controls on the second stage to adjust the breathing performance based on the diver’s individual needs.

Apeks MTX-RC Long Hose Regulator Set includes a tactical style messenger bag to keep your regulators safe on your travels. Perfectly sized for a laptop, it’s also your new work bag!

MTX-RC First Stage is cold water rated

The Apeks MTX-RC first stage has a unique over-balanced diaphragm design. As the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.

  • Satin plated brass body with heat exchanging ribs for maximum thermal performance.
  • Break through, innovative over-moulded first-stage endcap and environmental diaphragm helps prevent ice build-up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.
  • Ribbed diaphragm clamp for improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.
  • 5 x medium pressure ports, 4 mounted on a rotating turret for improved hose orientation
  • 2 x angled high pressure ports for optimal hose routing and fitting of transmitters.
  • Double swivel hose for greater freedom of movement and comfort.
  • Easy to grip DIN hand-wheel or over-moulded yoke hand-wheel, only requires one hand to release.
  • Tested for Octopus use - EN250A to 60 metres cold water.
  • Nitrox/Oxygen compatible – Up to 40% O2 outside the EU (European Union).

Second stage with Breathing effort adjuster

The oversize breathing effort adjuster of MTX-RC second stage makes adjustment easy in cold water whilst wearing gloves. Protective bumpers protect the second stage from impacts and scratches in the most vulnerable places.

  • Ergonomic and simple to use venturi lever.
  • Large purge button.
  • Reversible second stage for either a left or right hand gas supply configuration.
  • A heat exchanger (patented) dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water for a more comfortable breathe.
  • Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). The system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.
  • Comfo-bite mouthpiece
  • Flexible nylon braided hose, which has better cold water performance than traditional rubber hose.
