A WORLD OF DIVING
ADVENTURE AWAITS...


Vobster Quay is one of the UK's premier diving schools for scuba divers of all levels. Whatever your experience or ability, we�ll guide you through your first tentative steps into the world of diving and help you to become a safe and competent diver.

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. We'll help you to choose the course that best suits the type of diving that you want to do. 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.

Our professional instructors and divemasters are some of the most experienced in the industry and have helped hundreds of budding divers to achieve their diving ambitions. 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.

Fancy seeing something different in the dark? This Thursday our friends from Linear Guidance Illumination - LGi will be at Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre demonstrating their illuminated marker systems. Used by the police and the military, as well as many commercial organisations, maybe this is how we should mark out all our routes and features for safer low-light and dark diving conditions? Come along and see what you think! Cheers, Pete
