We are set within Portland Marina, host to the 2014 Olympic games with some of the best facilities within the industry. As well as a fully stocked shop, we also have 2 dedicated hardboats complete with diver lifts. Other services include a dive school, full gas facilities and an active dive club. Dont take our word of it, come and take a look.

These have got to be the best diving company in Weymouth/Portland. Everything a diver needs is nearby, dive shops, accommodation and a gas fill station. The boats and crew are top quality, I would not dive with any other company. Staff are friendly and helpful
