Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre with Pete Shaw and 2 others.

From right to left here is Pete Shaw, Vobster Quay instructor being evaluated for his IANTD Normoxic Plus (70m) by Howard Angel, Vobster Quay Technical Instructor, ( who is being evaluated by Tim Clements, Vobster Quay Technical Instructor Trainer). In turn, Tim is being evaluated as a Normoxic Plus IT by IANTD Technical Director and ITT Phil Short. The upshot after four days of intense evaluation and very rewarding diving education at all levels, is congratulations for Pete, completing his Normoxic Plus, Howard now a Normoxic Plus instructor and Tim now a Normoxic Trimix Plus instructor trainer.That's the trickle down.

The trickle up is that we are now delighted to have extended the scope of technical training for both divers and instructors at Vobster Quay. Whatever level you come to us at, we can distil advanced diving knowledge in an educational and informative way, with safety and enjoyable learning at the forefront. What we teach is born from long experience at every level from Howard through Tim to Phil, which means you can be assured of high end diving education tailored to your ambitions.


JOIN US FOR A
DIP THIS EASTER WEEKEND!
POSTED: 11th April 2017

Is it really Easter this weekend?! Where's the year gone already?!!!!! Yes folks, it's that time of year we all look forward to - the traditional start of the UK diving season marked in time-honoured fashion by four glorious days of no work, too much chocolate and lots of diving!

As always, we'll be open throughout the long Easter weekend - including Bank Holiday Monday - so make the most of the time off work with a visit to Vobster Quay. If this is your first dive of the year them Vobster is the perfect place to dust off the cobwebs and get both your kit and your skills sorted before you venture forth into the salty stuff. No one likes a spoilt dive due to a dodgy regulator or a leaky drysuit - better to discover the fault at Vobster than 5 miles out in the English channel!

Naturally we'll be putting on our signature smiles and will be more than happy to help you eat your Easter eggs so come on down and join in the fun :)

We're particularly pleased to see that the very first issue of Scuba Diver magazine features a rather lovely photo taken right here at Vobster Quay by pro photographer and regular Scuba Diver contributor, Jason Brown of BARDO Creative. Shot only last month, the cover image really shows off the great viz we've been enjoying of late :-)

Want to get your hands on a copy of Scuba Diver magazine? We have a limited number of issues available to pick up FOR FREE so pop into the shop and pick up your copy today.

Here's a Bank Holiday bump for the artificial reef project! Many of you have been asking about the concrete shapes and we've had a heap of positive vibes about the reef project, so here's a reminder of how your can support ARC Marine in their quest to develop technology to protect our marine habitats.

Artificial reefs provide new habitat for all kinds of species, plus can be used to protect vulnerable areas from over fishing or dredging - just look at the damage caused in Loch Carron to the flame shell beds this week.

Have a great Bank Holiday and support these guys in their... [more]

Pete
Vobster Quay doesn't just puddle jump. After trips to Naples last Autumn and Mull in March, Pete Shaw takes the helm for an early season Cornwall fix. Later this year, we have Plymouth weekender, Normandy wrecks and Malta to make full use of the training gained at Vobster and extend confidence and skills into rewarding diving. Interested in trips or training - get in touch, we have options for everyone. Cheers, Tim
