As divers we can not do without equipment: it keeps us alive and enables us to admire the completely different and lovely underwater world. We rely on our equipment, and want to enjoy scuba diving without worrying about the reliability of our equipment.
We of Thailand Liveaboards (thailand-scuba.com) know this all too well, and offer you two choices: you can rent (partially or completely) our equipment or you can bring and use your own equipment.
Please note: in most of our course prices equipment rental is included, in the daytrip and liveaboard prices it is not.
We have rental equipment of four different brands: Scubapro, Cressi Sub, Aqualung and Seac Sub, to make sure we have the correct size and comfortable fit for everybody.
All our rental gear (including the tanks) is serviced and visually inspected regularly. On top of that: except for the tanks, none of the equipment is older than two years; every year we replace about half of the BCD's and regulators.
All this to make sure that you can always dive with equipment in excellent condition, on which after all your life depends.
The equipment rental prices are per day:
|Shorty Wetsuit||100 Baht|
|Full Length Wetsuit||200 Baht|
|Fins (closed heel)||100 Baht|
|Mask & Snorkel||100 Baht|
|Complete set with Shorty||600 Baht|
|Complete set with Full Suit||700 Baht|
|Pockets for Integrated Weights||100 Baht|
|UW Light||200 Baht|
A full set comprises all the items mentioned before the sets, plus for a liveaboard diving trip on most boats also an U/W light including batteries for the nightdives.
Because of the number of dives made on a liveaboard trip, you will get chilly a lot easier than on daytrips. Quite often it is therefor a good idea to rent a full length wetsuit in stead of the standard shorty wetsuit.
Since recently we can also offer BCD's with integrated weights. For this there is a surcharge applicable of 100 Baht per day.
We don't only have quality diving equipment for rent, we can offer you a wide range of brands and equipment for sale as well. Quite some of the masks, snorkels, fins and wetsuits are made locally, and offer excellent value for little money. Also snorkelingsets are of good quality and very reasonably priced. In general prices of BCD's and regulators as well as of brand masks, snorkels, fins and wetsuits are on par with those in other parts of the world.
Besides these items we also sell the rest; cameras, disposable cameras, surface markers, maskstraps, finstraps, mouthpieces, defog, fishguides, area guides and of course all other accessories like carabiners, retractors, reels, etc. Normally all these items are quite cheap to buy here.
We have on offer: Suunto, Uwatec, Scubapro, Aqualung, Subgear, Seaquest, Seac Sub, Cressi Sub, Mares, Tusa, Oceanic, Apeks, Dacor, Saekodive, Technisub, Beuchat, Deep Blue, Tribord, Ocean Dynamics, Sea & Sea, Pelican, Intova, Snapsights, OMS, UK Underwater Kinetics, Trident, and all PADI and DAN materials.
All our diving guests get a discount on equipment purchases!
Every year we also have a BCD and regulator sale! After we have replaced our rental BCD's and regulators, we offer these to our guests at very attractive prices.
Never mind how good you and we take care of the equipment, sometimes something does go wrong with it. But we do not want you to miss out on the lovely diving we have here in the phuket area. So we make sure that there is always spare equipment on the boat: regulator-BCD-fins-mask-shorty wetsuit. On a liveaboard boat we also have lights, surface markers, etc.
So whether you use your own equipment or ours, you can be assured we will do everything we can to make sure you can enjoy your dives!
If you want more information about our equipment for rent or sale, just let us know.
