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 3.6V Saft LS14500 Battery is a good choice for Shearwater Perdix computers primarily because it has the longest usable life, over 100 hours on medium brightness.

In addition, they are incompatible with the new “Fuel Gauge” feature, so only three levels are given: Full, Low (Yellow) and Critical (Red).

Saft, a world-leading manufacturer with a century of experience, designs and produces high-tech batteries for specialized industrial applications.

Their reliable and cost-effective lithium batteries are environmentally friendly and represent the next generation of battery technology. Saft has reached new heights, powering applications used underwater, in space, on land, and across the seas, solidifying their position as a multi-technology leader.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  These batteries are not rechargeable. Saft LS14500 batteries use lithium thionyl chloride (Li-SOCI2), and will work perfectly in extreme temperatures. The battery for Shearwater Perdix ships only within the UK due to shipping restrictions.
