Going abroad ... thinking of diving

Then why not qualify here so you can make the most of the your time in clear warm waters.

If pushed for time before you go, then take the PADI referral course and do all the classroom studies and pool work beforehand, and finish off whilst on holiday.

start of testimonial

Just wanted to say a massive thank you again Ken for everything you and Julie have done over the past month. You have both been brilliant and all your help, support and guidance has been fantastic. I've had an amazing time and can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can get back in the water.... I'm already starting to think about the next stage in my dive training as well. A huge thanks to all the guys who helped too.I promise to take a chill pill and slow down on my next dive too! Thanks again, hopefully see you again soon! end of testimonial
