Shop exterior - click to enlargeRather like bubbles, diving centres appear, float to the surface and then disappear without trace. But like a reliable shotline, EDC has been leading customers into the world of diving for over 20 years. Trading on a reputation for thorough product knowledge and solid practical advice, the Centre has always strived to cater for the long term needs of the diving community locally, nationally and internationally.

EDC is Edinburgh’s oldest, most established diving centre. Set up in 1979, the Centre has grown in size and reputation and now comprises a retail outlet, an equipment servicing and testing centre and a training facility.

We offer an unrivalled all-round service to divers both old and new.


Inside the Shop
Shop interior- click to enlargeThe shop is packed with diving and snorkelling equipment. Most top brands are to be found lurking on our shelves. We know full well that diving equipment varies and that deciding on a make and model of whatever item can be hard work. So, we have an open invitation to everyone to come in, try our stuff on, chat to the staff and take time to consider the options. We have no interest in selling you equipment that you don't want or need.

Meet the Staff
Staff- click to enlargeStaff at EDC have one thing in common (other than working at EDC). They are all mad keen on diving and have loads of experience of diving all over Britain and many parts of the world. Whether you're looking for a piece of kit or somewhere to dive, drop in for a chat. But beware - enthusiasm can be infectious!

Alight at HayMarket. We're 15 mins walk from the station.


Getting to Edinburgh

Regional map- click to enlargeEdinburgh is well served by road and rail.
The nearest train station to EDC is Haymarket and just about all trains from the west stop here as well as at the main station Waverley. (Waverley is about a mile away at the east end of Princes Street). Most (if not all) trains from the east and south that do not terminate at Waverley also stop at Haymarket.

Edinburgh's main bus station is also near the east end of Princes Street at St Andrew's Square.

If you're coming by car it's best to avoid the city centre and approach from the south or west, making use of the city by-pass as appropriate. As in most of Edinburgh, car parking near the shop is scarce and amounts to finding a free spot in surrounding streets.
