Hire Gear

Mike Ball Dive Expeditions provides all divers with cylinders and weight belts in the standard tour price. There are 42 tanks onboard Spoilsport: 50% Air and 50% Nitrox. Two thirds average 10.3 L (80 cuft) and one third average 11.3L (88 cuft).

All Air and Nitrox cylinder valves are compatible with both US yoke (UK A clamp) and European DIN style regulators.

All divers are required to use a Nautilus Lifeline GPS.

Please view size chart. We recommend you bring your own wetsuit, mask, snorkel and fins as some divers find hire gear does not fit them well.

We cannot cater to children’s gear hire requirements. It is strongly recommended that children bring their own wetsuit, mask and fins.
