Hire Gear

Recreational hire gear

Recreational hire gear offered by Sydney Dive Charters is all top of the range new scuba diving equipment.

We believe our customers deserve the best dive equipment when they dive with us, we are not like dive stores who provide low to medium quality hire gear which doesn’t correctly fit, and is old.

Our fist & second stage regulators are the very best and breath easily while diving.

Hire your gear when you book

The recreational hire gear you have selected during the online booking process is already set up and waiting for you aboard purpose built boat, which saves you times and money.

Sydney Dive Charters Master or Dive Master will go through your hire gear with you so you are familiar with its operation and is fitted correctly.

Wetsuits for hire

BCD’s for hire

Sydney Dive Charters offers 40lb Scubapro or Halcyon single wing BCD’s, these come with the integrated weight system. Wing BCD’s are by far the best type of buoyancy compensating device for divers as their horse shoe design bladder is located on the divers back surrounding the tank, this not only gives the diver more arm freedom but assists the diver to dive in proper trim, this will increase divers dive time by reducing the amount of gas he or she consumes through the dive. Diver’s can also select weight belts if required.

We had such an amazing dive with Sydney Dive Charters this weekend - loads of sharks and a Weedy Sea Dragon! So professional, impeccable service, they clearly know the dive sites so well which comes with years of experience and local knowledge, makes such a difference to making a dive good to great, relaxed, efficient easy going. Boat was spotless and well maintained, rental equipment good quality. I look forward to diving with Jason and his team again soon. Thank you guys!

Amazing diving trip with Jason and his crew! Great gear and logistic. Discovered some of the most beautiful underwater creatures. Jason knows where to find the best spots in Sydney bay and how to improvise when schedule doesn’t go as planned.

Thank you Jason and Kate for an amazing diving experience. As a relative beginner, I was a little nervous about my double-dive, but the team were so friendly and warm that I immediately felt comforable. The diving equipment was all new and state of the art, which made a world of difference, and the dives and visibility were spectacular. I look forward to coming back for more dives with this professional, passionate and kind team. Thanks again!

Great day out & a diving experience with Jason. His boat dive instructions are very clear and precise and helps every diver before entry and exit. The best part is when the divers are below, Jason makes sure that there's no other non-diving boat in the vicinity & keeps all the divers feel safe to surface. Gr8 job mate!

This was our third time diving with Jason & Sydney Dive charters and we're looking forward to many more. Jason, a true dive professional, has an enormous wealth of diving knowledge and runs the dives smoothly and safely. We have done a few courses on his dive charters and have the utmost respect for him and the charters he runs. We thoroughly enjoy the diving and information and knowledge we gain every time we dive with Sydney Dive charters.

I’ve never seen such a well organised, clean and tidy boat which to me, means someone really knows what they’re doing, I’m in good knowledgeable, safe hands and they take pride in their work and I respect that. Jason and his dive boat are a 5-star AAA operation that won’t disappoint.

Great diving. Jason is very professional and has great experience that allowed us to dive in safety without giving up a more challenging dive site despite tough weather conditions. He is always dedicated to the customers happiness and safety and always goes an extra mile to help out. Great addition to the team with the Dive Master Matt that perfectly guided our dives today. We saw heaps of sharks and a really giant cuttlefish. The boat is very comfortable and well equipped also with a toilet available. In addition the rental gear available from Jason is excellent quality.

Excellent day out! Highly recommended! I was considering going with another company, and was very happy I chose Sydney Dive Charters instead! New high quality gear, no ripped wetsuits and a good briefing on how to use it all! Jason was very knowledgeable and set us up in the best conditions as he knows the Sydney coast like no one else. Our dive guide was great, he also made the trip very memorable. I will be back again 100%
