So now you've learnt to dive and been seriously bitten by the scuba bug or been qualified/diving for a while now and would love to dive more frequently. What are my options? Take another course or simply go diving the answer is.. the choice is yours, we can help with both?
Looking into diving here at home, but so far have been put off by tales of cold dark murky water's, most of which are untrue. Like many places in the world our are waters are seasonal and weather does play a huge part in the quality of dives. Even places like the Red Sea and Thailand can suffer from reduced visibility down to 2 to 3 metres at certain times and the same happens here seasonally in the UK!
When suitably prepared for diving in reduced visibility diving can still be very enjoyable. We regularly use 3 great inland sites available to us all under an hour and half drive away.
We can be at the coast in two and half hours. We also travel the whole country, Wales to Devon, West Coast of Scotland to the Farne Islands to Orkney and Shetland.
We have a great diversity of wrecks and marine life that is not drab grey but very rich. Diving on holiday tends to lead by a Dive master in groups, diving in the UK is more buddy orientated. We have much more control over our whole dive. When most people look into diving here at home it simply means that they want to be able to dive more often and diving at home offers the perfect solution. Our regular trips to the inland sites although not as colourful as the coastal dives do offer us the prefect opportunity to dive regularly and a typical day starts at 8am and finishes around 4pm.
I don't have a regular dive buddy? Not a problem we always find a suitable dive buddy for you and many firm friendships have been formed this way over the years.We would recommend you take orientation to diving here rather than just jumping in on our own as there are differences between warm water and our temperate water's. Depending on the time of the year this may be a couple of escorted dives or we may recommend a drysuit course. If you are an Open Water Diver we may suggest taking your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course or our Adventure UK dive package.
