Our brick-and-mortar store Underwater Explorers based on Portland, Dorset is staffed 7 days a week, including weekends and bank holidays. 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 SportDiver Underwater Smartphone Housing for iPhone & Android is a compact and lightweight underwater housing for smartphones. The SportDiver housing will allow divers to take photos and videos with their smartphones down to 40 meters.

The SportDiver can encase most Android models and all iPhones from iPhone 8 through iPhone 14 Pro Max. The free SportDiver App is available at the App Store or Play Store and works with the current and prior generations of the OS. Please review SportDiver compatibility checker and fit guide.

The heavy-duty housing comprises Polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminium and optical-grade glass. And while the SportDiver Underwater Smartphone Housing is “heavy duty”, it is not heavy, weighing less than 641 grams, and is lightweight for travelling and offers almost neutral buoyancy in water depending on which smartphone model is used.

SportDiver Underwater Smartphone Housing is easy to use

The SportDiver is easy to hold and use and offers a large shutter lever and rear control buttons for easy operation, even with dive gloves. Snorkelers and Divers can get more creative with their photos or video shots by using advanced camera settings. Adjust Zoom, Exposure (EV), Auto/Manual Focus, White Balance, Tint, Lens selection, RAW+JPEG mode, Live Photo and Background Blur (on available phone models).

Free SportDiver App

The SportDiver housing includes the free SportDiver app. Unlike other smartphone housing apps, there are no annoying in-app purchases or ads. You can easily switch between photo and video modes. The SportDiver App uses your phone’s camera technology native to each phone model. The app supports the present and previous versions of OS, the app is updated according to new versions of the OS.

The App Playback mode shows full-size photos and videos with vertical thumbnail strips to easily locate your images. Videos start playing automatically when selected. All files are also saved to the phone’s camera roll. The SportDiver housing automatically connects to your smartphone and the SportDiver app using Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) 5 wireless technology. No cables or buttons touch the phone, and it offers ultra-low power consumption for both the phone and the housing, which is powered by two AAA batteries that last over 50 hours of continuous use.

Enhanced image results

For enhanced imaging results, a removable underwater colour-correction filter is included with the SportDiver, which restores natural underwater colours.  The filter is easily attached or removed underwater and includes a safety tether to prevent loss.  The SportDiver housing features triple 1/4-20 tripod mounts, which mount to any light or light tray with standard tripod threads, such as SeaLife’s range of Sea Dragon underwater photo/video lights.

Safety and protection

For the phone’s safety and protection, the SportDiver has a sturdy holding spring and rubber grip tabs that securely hold the smartphone in place and add shock protection.  The SportDiver has “Dual Leak Alarms”, which include an internal moisture alarm and a vacuum pressure alarm which alert the diver with on-screen warnings, audio and LED signal in the unlikely event the waterproof seal is compromised and there’s a loss of housing pressure, or moisture is detected.  The door of the SportDiver is sealed with a TPE O-ring and a robust cam-lock sealing latch that easily and securely locks the waterproof door.  To prevent interior fogging from residual moisture, the SportDiver uses the anti-fogging agent “Moisture Muncher” capsule, which prevents fogging and internal condensation.
