When choosing where to dive and who with there are many choices. Not all PADI programs are the same - and neither are all PADI facilities.
The PADI Organisation states that the only place where you can obtain all the Dive Education, Dive Equipment and Dive Experiences is a DIVE CENTRE.
Having been open for over 8 Years now, our success in climbing the PADI rankings for UK Dive Centres is proof of our commitment to Customer Service & Quality – our Dive Students keep coming back for more…and more... and more! In 2005 we achieved PADI’s Top 10 UK centres, and Top 5 in 2006... and we've maintained our staus every year since then : 5 Years in the TOP 5 UK Dive Centres
There are a great many Dive "Resorts" and Independent Dive "Schools" run by instructors around the region; quite often offering cheap(er) services....
So Why should you choose a Full Service Professional DIVE CENTRE?
it’s all about Quality, Service & Value…
WE ARE consistently placed by PADI in the TOP 5 UK Dive Centres - mostly driven by our students who love what we do so much, that they keep coming back for more, and more... and more :
