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 second-generation Dive Rite Nomad LS Sidemount System has a unique design that can easily handle steel or aluminium cylinders.

Utilising a diamond-shaped bladder with zero lift baffles, the Nomad LS Sidemount System allows the diver to trim out horizontally with minimal adjustment.

The extremely durable exterior SuperFabric™ material is resistant to the elements of diving, whether diving on a quiet reef, pushing deep into a cave system, or scooting through a deck opening on a wreck dive.

Deluxe style harness of the Nomad LS provides a customisable and comfortable fit for nearly any size diver. The harness can be easily replaced. The waistband is designed to sit lower on the diver’s hips, optimal for trimming out cylinders attached to the waist

Inflator routes from the bottom to optimise hose routing, while a shoulder OPV pull allows gas venting from a vertical orientation.

An adjustable bungee system allows the diver to choose between ring, loop, or independent bungees. The laser-cut adjustment plate allows for infinite adjustment to fine-tune bungee length.

Low profile buttplate is easily removed using stainless slides without un-weaving the harness.

The built-in weight system uses the 2-inch crotch strap, which continues up the back to add support. Block weights can be directly attached, while bag weight can be added using a Travel Weight Pocket.
