Beyond One Bar
A small Family-centered business committed to the underwater world and it's inhabitants, with reuse and recycle as a core to what we do.

Beyond One Bar

Based in Leiston, Suffolk, UK. Beyond One Bar was established by a family of Divers in 2014. We have a Shop in Leiston Town stocking equipment for open water swimming, snorkelling, free diving, and scuba diving, as well as supplying a range of services online.

So, "Why Beyond One Bar?"

There are three reasons why I came up with the name. Firstly, we were born into a world where the pressure stays at a fairly constant one bar, water weighs more than air and therefore exerts more pressure. So, when we dive under the water the pressure on our bodies increases, hence we go Beyond One Bar. Secondly, my favourite sea creature is a Bobtail Squid. Lastly, and the most dear to my heart, is that my dad's name was Robert, which commonly became affectionately shortened to Bob.
