A WORLD OF DIVING
ADVENTURE AWAITS...

We offer a full range of diving courses from the world's largest and most respected diver training agency - PADI. With greater global recognition than any other diver training organisation, your PADI certification will ensure you enjoy a warm welcome wherever you choose to dive!

Choosing the course that is right for you is easy with our friendly and knowledgeable staff there to guide you through the options available.

From exploring sunken shipwrecks to getting up close to the myriad of diverse aquatic life that inhabits the oceans, we'll give you the skills and knowledge you need to make it happen.

We understand that learning to dive can be a daunting prospect. We also never forget that not everyone learns at the same pace and what may seem easy to some, may be challenging to offers.

We strive to deliver courses that are a cut above the rest ensuring you learn to dive in a friendly, fun and - above all - safe environment.

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
