Whether you want to explore the underwater world, take your first breath from a regulator, or launch into an exciting new career in the dive industry, we will make your dreams become a reality. As we are SCUBA professionals we teach and guide you every step of the way.

When Dive HQ stores aren't in the water they are compiling products for the Dive HQ Catalogue and shop shelves. We stand behind the products we sell and aim to give SCUBA divers the best value for money no matter what their budget is.
