AUUC owns 8 full sets of SCUBA diving equipment along with some free diving socks and fins.
This gear is paid for by the club and anyone borrowing it is expected to take great care with it.
To organise gear, email [email protected]
Gear is stored in the boat shed of the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre (8-10 Tamaki Drive, Orakei, Auckland). Please email the gear officer to arrange a time, detailing what gear you require. As SCUBA gear is very bulky and heavy, it is necessary to bring your car or very politely ask your driver for the trip; parking is free and usually widely available outside the centre.
The most preferred way to pay for gear hire is with cash. On top of payment for gear hire, we also require a $50 cash bond which will be returned to you in full once the gear is returned rinsed and dried, and with the tanks filled.
Remember that the Gear Officer is a volunteer giving up their time, so any steps you take to make the process quick and easy would be greatly appreciated. This could be such as:
- Checking your log book to know how much weight you require
- Withdrawing your cash in advance
- Making sure your cash is divisible into $50 + Price of gear hire
- Being punctual
