Returns Policy

Here you'll find all the information about returning items to us. All returns requests should be submitted via our Returns Centre page to ensure we know to expect your parcel and speed up the returns procedure.

Request A Return

Mike's Dive Store always offer an extended returns policy of 60 days - so you can rest assured that if the suit, piece of diving equipment or gift doesn't suit then just send it back, and we will either offer a full refund less any postage costs or issue you with store credit. In todays hectic world, we know it can take longer to get around to things sometimes!

Refunds / Store Credits (the official stuff):

Once the item is returned to us, we will inspect it and will notify you of your refund/replacement or store credit via email. This is usually done within 14 working days of receiving your return into our Warehouse. During busy periods, please allow up to 14 days for your return to be received and processed. In the current situation we have also imposed a quarantine period on all returns to help protect our staff and other customers.

UK law automatically gives you a 14 day ‘cooling-off period’ when you buy something you haven’t seen in person, i.e. online. We don't think that 14 days is enough though which is why we give you 60 days, starting as soon as you receive your order. Some items are not eligible for return though, including:

  • Products that deteriorate quickly
  • Products that have been personalised, made to measure or custom-made specifically for you
  • Products that are end of line, items that we can no longer replace, obtain parts for or repair.

Any items you wish to return for a refund must be unused and in an 'as new' condition with all packaging intact and all original labels and tags attached to the item. Removal or loss of original labels may affect your return.

The products should not have been used in water, even for testing, until you are happy with them as they cannot be returned once used in water. Any evidence of use in water may result in the refund being rejected and the items returned to you.

Please note - Items that can't be refunded - Prescription dive masks and earplugs, due to customisation and hygiene reasons.

Please also note that special orders that required stock to be ordered in to fulfil may incur a 20% restocking fee.

We do hope you will take reasonable care of the items you wish to return as we reserve the right to refuse a refund and return the goods to you if they are not fit for re-sale.


If you wish to return an item for an exchange please place a new order for the correct item and return the unwanted item to us by requesting a return via our Returns Centre. Once it has been received, processed and approved we will action the refund. This is to eliminate any delay with the delivery of your item wherever possible.
