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 Hollis HD 200 BC promises comfort, function, and durability. Slip Hollis HD 200 on a single cylinder with integrated bands, and you’ll still wear a jacket. Still, this time the floatation will be in a more diver-friendly back position, allowing better trim and greater comfort.

The popularity of wings among recreational and technical divers has driven leading manufacturers to blend together the comfort, ease and durability of a traditional jacket-type BC and an integrated back-mounted bladder.

What is the difference between a wing system and BCD?

Back mount jacket type BCs differ from wings in that the bladder system is integrated, they generally utilise lightweight backplates as opposed to aluminium or steel.

They have quick-release weight and side pockets as opposed to the no-restriction, no-pocket approach of real wings, and the positions of D-rings are more or less set, unlike the full user adjustability of wings.

Back mount BC jackets generally has quick-release clips as opposed to the continuous-loop (no breakpoint) harnesses that wing systems have. Jackets require divers to select a size, unlike the one-size-fits-all concept of "adjustable" genuine wings.

If you are looking for a single tank wing system instead, check out our recreational wings.
