    This is possibly a dumb question but are there any companies/clubs in the UK and Ireland arranging dives and rent equipment for tourists? I thought about combining a "normal" tourist visit to the UK or Ireland with a few dives if possible but I don't know how developed that industry is there.
    I prefer to dive with a wet suit (it is what I use in the Baltic Sea) so I guess Scotland is not a possibility if I want to stick to my 5mm. I would need to rent BCD, regulator and tank.

    A lot of dive centres will arrange guided dives and most will rent equipment.

    Thanks, any suggestions on which areas of the UK and Ireland would be worth a visit? I have no idea about where to dive there.

    South west coast of Ireland is fantastic for a dive holiday.
    Myself and the missus went to Dingle a couple of years back. Would definatly go again.
