Underwater Camera & Video Rental
We offer a range of rental cameras, both still and motion. We also offer a digital photo downloading service.
On request our in house videographer will join you on the dive boat for fun dives or course to capture the memories of your underwater adventures.
The footage is then professionally edited and music is added to produce an exciting DVD for you to keep and show to friends and family.
Join us on one of our dive trips and and we’ll help you understand more about the art of underwater photography and videography.
Being “on location” means we can offer very reasonably priced courses and clinics. A course results in a PADI qualification, a clinic is less formal and tailored.
We cater for all levels from the complete beginner wishing to rent a camera and housing to the advanced photographer with his own equipment wishing to tap into our knowledge to receive tips and techniques.
