As a PADI 5 Star IDC Resort, we are truly dedicated to making sure our customer experience is top notch from start to finish. One of our priorities with this in mind, is to select the best scuba equipment on offer, and keep all our gear well maintained and safe.
Adang Sea Divers has been officially partnering with Aqualung since 2012, and it’s something we’re very proud of. We think when selecting dive gear for our divers to use, Aqualung is an obvious and easy choice, as their reputation for quality mirrors ours when it comes to having the highest standards of safety, as well as a years of experience and knowledge. This ensures that the equipment is comfortable and fits you well, so you can get the most out of your diving experience here with us.
We use Calypso yoke valve regulators (we have DIN adapters available if needed), Wave BCDs (not integrated so a weight belt is needed), Express Open Heal fins, and Superzip 5mm or Polynesian 3mm dive booties. We also have a wide variety of different Aqualung masks for you to choose from to suit every face shape.
As part of our promise as an Aqualung partner centre, we are committed to servicing and renewing all of our equipment on a regular basis, so you can be assured that all of our rental gear is either recently purchased or recently serviced.
Old and worn kit is retired and renewed whenever necessary as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring our customers have access to the best possible equipment whilst diving with us.
Here at Adang Sea Divers we believe in leading by example. So you’ll see our staff rocking out in Aqualung gear too! The Axiom and ProQD are popular BCD choices for many of our PADI Instructors and Divemasters, and the Legend and Titan regulator sets are generally the ‘go to’ regulators of choice.
There’s not much our team doesn’t know about dive equipment, so feel free to ask them questions. Just make sure you’re not in a rush and have the time to listen their answers…depending on who you ask you may need a few hours!
As well as a range of benefits that we can pass on to you, our customers are also entitled to direct privileges thanks to us being an AquaLung Partner Centre. Firstly, it means you are entitled to ‘try before you buy’ on a wide range of all products which is a huge advantage – especially on expensive purchases – as it means you can be 100% sure that you investing in the gear that is right for you.
Secondly, for our divers advancing to PRO levels and investing in whole sets of their own gear, AquaLung have provided us with a range of equipment package options to suit every preference, requirement and budget.
We use high quality Catalina Aluminium Scuba Cylinders, with Thermo Yoke/DIN valves in varying sizes of 8l, 10l, 12l and 15l. Our cylinders are visually inspected annually, and are Hydrostatically tested every 5 years. We have a Coltri-Sub/Bauer compressor with an external filter system. Our filter is changed every 50 hours so you can know that you will be diving with clean air when diving with us here on Koh Lipe.
In addition to our compressor we also so have an Oxytronic Continuous-Flow Nitrox system, so nitrox tanks are available for your dives at an extra charge, or you can complete your PADI Enriched Air Course with us here if you are not yet certified.
