We welcome divers from all training agencies


With the increase in water table we have a measured 14 meters depth of water. This is deep enough to legitimately conduct most training and recreational dives and conforms to the PADI and BSAC standard that a training dive must be predominantly conducted below five meters.

Ask yourself - "Would I prefer to receive training at realistic depths or be left unprepared upon qualification?" and "Is my choice of venue capable of giving me the level of training I deserve?" These should be questions high on your list.

Directions to the site can be seen through the link below.

Please use the Mires Lane entrance.
