Andark was formed in 1976 , originally as a diving contractor working on many underwater projects from ship hull surveys to underwater construction and marine salvage. In 1980 we diversified into scuba diver training . Today Andark is one of the country’s biggest leisure diving schools offering a range of world-recognised dive courses.

From 1982 the company started retailing diving equipment. This was soon expanded to include clothing and equipment for other watersports. Now from its retail base near Southampton it sells all the leading clothing brands for yachting and boating including Gill, Henri Lloyd, Musto and Quicksilver; lifejackets and buoyancy aids by Crewsaver, Typhoon, Henri Lloyd; wet and dry suits from, BodyGlove, Typhoon, Gul, Crewsaver and Musto. Diving suppliers include Scubapro, Suunto, Cressi, Mares, Aqualung and more.

We run dives along the south coast and are situated in the heart of the south’s boating area, surrounded by marinas, sailing schools and clubs, with Cowes just across the Solent..
