About us

Sound Diving has been providing excellent service and equipment to local and visiting divers for 31 years. Owner, Steve Carpenter, is not only a highly qualified technician but also has the diving experience to compliment his skills and is still diving both locally and abroad. Steve’s assistant Kim has been a valuable accomplice for eight years bringing her knowledge of underwater photography and her love of diving.

Steve's wealth of training and knowledge built up over so many years has saved many a failing regulator or has managed to find that spare part hidden in his workshop that has kept countless pieces of diving kit in good working order. Servicing and repairs are our specialities.

Sound Diving has by far the greatest selection of new and second hand equipment to be found in any of the local dive shops. The shop on many occasions likened to the diving equivalent to Aladdin’s Cave due to the amount of gear jammed in there as opposed to the lack of light. It can also provide bespoke equipment packages to your preference and specifications.

Brands stocked include: Mares, Buddy, Apex, Cressi-Sub, Oceanic, Typhoon, Poseidon, O-Three, Fourth Element, Sea and Sea, Bowstone, Beaver, Tusa, Northern Diver, Lumb Bros and many more.

Summer opening hours: Monday-Friday 9am-5.30pm, Sat 8.30am-6pm, Sun 8.30am-1pm. 2 Hours free parking directly outside the shop in Queen Anne's Battery Marina.
