Equipment

The club maintains a dozen full sets of scuba gear, 25 tanks, countless wetsuits and weight belts for use by members. To fill tanks, the club has two compressor units allowing travel all over South Australia where air fills might not have otherwise been available. The banks trailer is equipped with a high capacity Bauer compressor and banks cylinders allowing the club to take large numbers of members away diving. The smaller Coltri Sub compressor is used by experienced groups heading away to remote locations.

What Members Need

All members are required to have some basic pieces of equipment that are not available for hire from the club. These are:
  • Mask;
  • Snorkel;
  • Fins; and
  • Wetsuit Boots.
These few items are the basics that are needed to get started. All other equipment can be hired from the club at very commercial rates. Members need to be prepared to be involved in the club, as AUSC is not a commercial charter or shop.

Note that payment of hired equipment must be paid in person on the day of the dive. There is an ATM located close to the club rooms. Online payment is reserved for dive trips only.

Compressor

The Club owns a set of compressor banks, and also a portable trailer mounted compressor.
