Thinking about trying scuba diving but not sure if it's for you?

Start with a Discover Scuba Diving class. If you like it, you can continue straight on to certification classes without missing a beat.

Whether it’s your first time diving or you want to advance your scuba skills, our team of experienced scuba instructors is here to help. All training is done one on one or in small groups ensuring you get personal attention and a comfortable learning experience.


Every year we buy new equipment that is used on our courses. Our used equipment is regularly maintained and so is also in good condition.


We limit our class sizes to a maximum of four – because we do not schedule courses but run them on demand, courses are frequently run with 1 or 2 students. This also means that courses will run according to your progress, and so we can be as flexible as you need us to be.
