Description for the dive shop Triton Scuba-UK

It all started in 1978, when David Jones, the founder of the company, first put on a cylinder, twin hose and horse collar adjustable buoyancy life jacket. Many years and a great deal of experience later, the end result is Triton Scuba.
Triton Scuba was established to provide a centre of diving excellence and expertise. We have grown exponentially since the company was conceived in 1998, which is testimony to having achieved that aim. Our experienced and professional Instructors and Dive Centre Staff are passionate about the sport, and about providing a first class service. We pride ourselves on offering quality, sound and honest advice and value for money. This philosophy has led to us becoming recognized as one of the best Diving Centres in the South of England. With a knowledge based on many years of experience in diving, both commercially and recreationally, we understand what you are looking for, whether you are taking your first tentative steps in learning to dive, or you are a seasoned professional delving into the depths of serious technical diving. We are here to support your needs, answer your questions and offer impartial advice, whether it is about training, equipment, servicing, dive sites or holidays.
Triton Scuba is more than just a Dive Centre, it is a community. Students and customers come back time and time again for training, equipment advice and purchases, holidays, or just a chat. Our Dive Club offers more benefits than any other club in the area and welcomes all divers no matter who you were trained with. Ideally situated in the centre of Southsea, our dive centre is a hub of activity throughout the year. One of the busiest and fastest growing centres in the South, we are also the only PADI Vocational Centre and Project Aware Official Partner in the area.
The centre is a bit like the ``Tardis`` (as in Dr Who), because while the Dive Centre looks small on the outside, once inside, it opens up into a multi-level centre with a full retail shop, classrooms, storage areas and other facilities. There is always a friendly welcome whenever you come in and many of our friends and customers regularly pop by for a chat and a cup of coffee, so don`t be worried that it looks too busy - they are just being sociable. The dive centre is a bit more like a community than a shop and we like all of our customers and students to feel a part of the family. There is loads to look at in the dive centre so if you have never had the guided just ask - one of our stafff will be delighted to show you around.
In the basement we have the majority of our equipment sales. You will find wetsuits, drysuits, BCDs, gloves, boots and hoods all from leading manufacturers, as well as a good range of diver clothing from IQ, Narked, Sea Dog, Fourth Element and In-the-Water. We have a wide selection of equipment and a complete range of sizes, not just one or two. We have dealerships with most of the major manufacturers so even if you can`t find it, the chances are we can get it for you. On the ground floor we have the main shop where you will find most of the accessories and gadgets you need, plus a huge selection of regulators, gauges, computers and torches, again from leading manufacturers. The ground floor is also where our workshop is located. Servicing is undertaken on-site, rather than being passed to a third party and a qualified technician is always available for advice or equipment ``tweaking``. Towards the back of the ground floor is our dry kit room, wet room and compressor area. We have huge amount of top quality Scubapro gear for students on courses and for hire by qualified divers. With more than 40 wetsuits, 20 drysuits, 20 regulators and BCDs, and 40 cylinders, we rarely run out but it helps us if you let us know in advance if you are coming in to pick up some gear.
Our compressor and bank system provides 300 Bar air, nitrox up to 100% and trimix fills.
