SCUBA EQUIPMENT SERVICING
It is important to have your equipment serviced annually to maintain its tip-top condition and operational efficiency. We are currently certified to service Oceanic, Hollis, and Aeris gear. We are also affiliated with other service technicians who are able to service most brands of scuba gear. If we cannot service it here, we can have it serviced for you.
Scuba Equipment is expensive! We understand this is new to you. Buying new equipment to use only for a few days just to be stacked in the corner of the garage afterward isn't very economical.
By renting our equipment you can ensure it is properly inspected and serviced after each use while saving you a lot of money! You must show proper certification to rent equipment.

SCUBA CYLINDER INSPECTIONS
As you learned in your introduction to scuba diving, your cylinders must be inspected annually and must have a mandatory hydrostatic inspection every 5 years. The reason for this is the incredible amount of pressure a scuba cylinder is subject to when full of gas. If the inspection sticker on your cylinder is out of date (more than I year old), an air fill station will not fill your cylinder until it is inspected and re-certified. At Davey Bones Scuba Center, we can service your cylinders and tank valves whether you have aluminum or steel tanks and can take care of your hydrostatic inspection when it is due. If you dive nitrox, we can also oxygen clean your cylinders and tank valves.
Does your schedule prevent you from training during normal class hours, or do you just prefer a private class for you or your group? Are you already certified but would like to have some “one on one” time with an Instructor to help you fine tune your skills? We will customize any of our training programs to meet your needs or the needs of your group.
Would you like to travel abroad on a dive excursion with your own personal Instructor or Divemaster? We can plan your dive vacation at a variety of locations around the world. We will provide an Instructor or Divemaster to take care of all the on-site details (cylinders, weights, rental gear, dive scheduling, local transportation, etc.), and accompany you, or your group, on all dives. This is a great opportunity to take a PADI continuing education course, or, finish your Open Water check-out dives in an ocean environment.
Referrals - If you already have travel plans and want to do your Open Water check-out dives abroad, we can provide you with a PADI Referral so you can finish your PADI Open Water course while you are on your vacation.
