There are several businesses in the local area which serve the diving community. Whether you are looking for gas, new dive gear or want it servicing, along with cylinder testing, between them, there is a very comprehensive range of products available. You can also learn to dive through some of them. Whilst the dive shops will offer new gear, please do not be put off when they say that the specific item you are looking for is not in stock. Their knowledge and experience will help you to get the right item for you.

Please note: The listing of any business here does not mean that Southsea Sub-Aqua Club endorses its products and services.
