Comments Off on Ultimate try dives: Rebreathers, twinsets and sidemounts

As try dives go, it has to be the ultimate experience. And here at Aquasport, we are offering you chance to try one of our rebreathers on for size as we host the second Hollis open night next Thursday, 11th October, from 3pm to 9pm.

The latest range of tec diving gear, including wings, twinsets, sidemounts, stage cylinders and deco bottles, will be on show and you will get the chance to dive with it yourself in our heated training pool.

But if you want to see what it is like diving ‘bubble free’ in one of our Inspiration closed circuit rebreathers or ‘almost bubble free’ with one of our Draeger semi-closed rebreathers then you best get a move on because we only have seven spots left.

The sessions will last for about 30 minutes. As expected, they are proving popular so you will need to call the centre and book one if you don’t want to miss out.

Outside of the Dive Show, we can’t think of anywhere else you that will offer you this opportunity. Unfortunately, due to time constraints only paid up club members can book for these.

Comments Off on If Carlsberg made technical dive centres….

COURSE fees, £145…Dive site entrance, £9…smile on your face after completing your first rebreather dive, priceless. There are some things that money can buy. For the rest there is Aquasport.

Rebreathers, twin sets, sidemounts, stage cylinders and DPVs – there is a world of kit out there all designed to take your diving to another level.

We have it all here available to use as part of your training programmes with Aquasport and beyond…and yes, that includes £4,000 Inspiration rebreathers, £2,000 twin sets and £1,600 Hollis sidemounts.

So now you don’t have to shell out your hard-earned cash on some technical dive gear you’ve not had chance to test to see whether you like it. We can provide it for you.

I can’t think of any other centres that would dare claim to be able to match that offer.

Comments Off on Dive Gear: Subgear XP-H the small computer that punches above its weight

WHEN it comes to air integrated dive computers, you are going to be pushed to find something as compact as the Subgear XP-H.

In fact it is so neat that you can be forgiven for failing to spot this latest offering from the former German dive gear manufacturer on the shelves at Aquasport.

Despite its diminutive size – it measures little more than two inches across and weighs in at a featherlight 150 grams – this nitrox computer has heavyweight features in a flyweight body  and is one you should really take a look at.

Comments Off on Gear Profile: The Hollis BAC 85 Wing

Sharing the name of diving pioneer and founder of Oceanic, Bob Hollis, the Hollis range of dive equipment has taken the technical dive gear market by storm in the last 12 months. And the Hollis Dual Bladder BAC (Bungee Air Cell) has become a firm favourite with Aquasport staff and customers alike.

The wing is often the first purchase for a tec diver and it can be one they agonise over the most – dual or single bladder; bungee or no bungee, cam band slots or not.

The Hollis BAC 85lb helps make some of those decisions easier. So visit Aquasport on Tuesday 19th June for the chance to try out one of these systems for yourself. Read on and find out more. → Read more
