Gear Services

Has your scuba gear been sitting in the closet too long?   You finally want to use it and not sure if you want to gamble your life on whether it's ready to dive or not?   Noooo Problem - We’ve got this!

Just get it to us - ship it, drive it or give it to Santa. (We see him fairly regularly)  And we will take care of the rest.  Any make, model or type. Noooo problem.   Now, if it will cost more to find the parts for your ancient 1945 mariner regulator than it’s worth, then we are going to call you to make sure you still want to.  But, 90% of the equipment out there can be serviced, repaired and shipped back to you for less than most shops charge for service alone. Heck, we even do the service for some shops. 

If your gear can’t be repaired conventionally, we use magic. We have a secret village of Menehune’s from Hawaii. They don’t eat much and only work at night, but they do good work.  Little bastards keep stealing tools though. 

Seriously, though, we have a lot of fun, and our Tech Ninjas are factory trained! We have a large inventory of parts, the latest in testing equipment, and all the proper tools to work on your scuba life support equipment... Even a very large hammer for the stubborn pieces. 

We hate surprises - so rest assured that, if we run into anything that needs to be replaced (beyond normal service kits) and has a cost over $20 (like hoses, cracks in regulator housing, etc), we will contact you before we replace anything with options and costs!  If its junk, parts aren't available, or the manufacturer is no longer in business then we have a trade in program that can get you up to 20% off new gear!
