Test before you buy!

The Diving House.png

For the first time, the Duikhuis will be present at the Duikvaker and we are happy with that! the Duikhuis presents brands that you can't get everywhere: Oceanic, Hollis, Lavacore, Oceanpro and Xcel. Visitors can obtain advice about these modern diving gear and immediately test them between 3 pm and 8 pm in the Merwestein swimming pool in Nieuwegein, a 10-minute drive from the fair.

Which diving equipment do you like best? You won't know until you try it on. Most divers ask their instructor or buddy for advice. Many choices are personal and dependent on your own experiences, preferences and physique. Of course you like to listen to expert advice, but experience shows that the diving materials listen best to your body and the choice is very personal!

That is why we think it is important that you can test the diving equipment under water at the Dive House, so that you know what you want to buy. During the exhibition days this is possible on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 pm to 8 pm. After the fair, this is possible on every Saturday and Sunday in the Duikhuis Test Center from 1 pm to 3 pm.

In the Dive House Test Center the following brands are tested: Oceanic (sport diving), Hollis (tec diving), Lavacore (diving clothing), OceanPro (free diving), Xcel (wetsuits), OceanReef (full face masks), Sealife (underwater cameras) and Light & MoRon (underwater lighting). The Duikhuis is the flagship store in the Netherlands for the Oceanic, Hollis, Lavacore, OceanPro and Xcel brands.

Meet the enthusiastic Dive House test masters to exchange beautiful dive stories and browse beautiful dive books. We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition stand, oh, exhibition tent.
