LP 1st Stage Adaptors

The Scuba Doctor offers a large variety of low pressure (LP) first stage regulator port adaptors for recreational, technical, rebreather, sidemount and commercial diving applications.

Most low-pressure hoses are 3/8-inch male and most first stage low-pressure ports are 3/8-inch female. A few brands of first stages have a special low-pressure port that is 1/2-inch female, notably some Apex and older Aqualung models. We offer 1/2-inch to 3/8-inch adaptors.

Reminder: The actual configuration of an adaptor is a mirror image of its use. A 3/8"-24 UNF FEMALE port requires a 3/8"-24 UNF MALE adaptor etc. In technical diving operations where many fittings may get co-mingled, be sure that all adaptor combinations can accommodate the intended flows and pressures.

Looking for a particular fitting you don't see here? Let us know and we'll see if we can order it for you.

We reserve the right to limit order quantities to less than 10 pieces because our supply is appropriate for the demands of individual divers, but not bulk orders. Large volume bulk orders will NOT qualify for our free shipping promotion.

Deep Rated Outside Port Phillip Ships Graveyard Subject to Shipping Technical Rated Wreck Dive Site

Three-Masted Iron Barque, Coal Hulk | Max Depth: 58 m (190 ft) — Graveyard

The Campana shipwreck lies in the Victorian Ships' Graveyard off Barwon Heads in Bass Strait.

Diving the Campana Shipwreck

The Campana shipwreck sits in 58 m (190 ft) of water and the bow steelworks are in-tact and provide easy penetration and multiple swim through locations. There is plenty of fish life and the soft sponges range in colours from white to yellow to orange to purple.

It feels larger than specified and is a better wreck dive than one might expect. As the wreck is on the shipping leads it is always subject to shipping.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

Campana Shipwreck History — Built in 1875

© Unknown

The Campana was a three-masted iron barque, built in 1875, by R. and J. Evans, in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The overall length of the vessel was 192 ft (59 m), with a beam of 31.7 ft (9.66 m) and draught 19.2 ft (5.85 m), 776 tons net and 815 tons gross.

The vessel was sold a number of times until purchased by Hamburg, Germany based owners and renamed the Vidette.

In 1899, the vessel was purchased by the Melbourne-based shipping company McIlwraith, McEacharn Ltd, converted into a coal hulk, and renamed Campana.

Campana Sinking — Scuttled 30 July 1927

The Campana departed Williamstown in tow of the tug Minah and was scuttled using explosives in the Victorian Ships' Graveyard off Barwon Heads in Bass Strait on 30 July 1927.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
