About the Kent Diving Website

Kent Diving’s Website is the online trading division of Kent Diving & Watersports Ltd, a specialist supplier of Scuba Diving Equipment established since 1983. The site offers competitive prices for ordering online.

Originally the company supplied a localized market in Kent with Scuba Diving Equipment. In 1987 the company established it's own Servicing and Maintenance capacity in house and extended its customer base. In 1996 we started offering PADI training, which is now carried out in partnership with local independent instructors. Growth continued throughout the 1990's and by the end of the 20th century the company was established as one of the leading suppliers and service centres for Scuba Diving Equipment in the UK. We moved to Dartford in 2002

The company currently supplies a wide variety of individuals and training establishments throughout the UK and worldwide with equipment from all leading manufacturers.

We are a long established company who has been supplying our customers by mail order for many years prior to the Internet’s inception. We have a proven track record of prompt and reliable delivery worldwide.

We have endeavored to make the site as user friendly as possible with easy access to product descriptions and simplified online ordering. We will be continuing to expand the products available on our website.

In line with our company’s policy of continual improvement we would welcome any suggestions you may like to make and trust our relationship will be a long and beneficial one. Email Customer services here.
