Whether you're a visiting dive school or just want to practise some skills, you'll find a generous selection of training platforms dotted around the lake.

Available to all divers, these raised training platforms provide fixed areas in which to teach and practice dive skills at a variety of recognised depths. As all platforms are raised up off the quarry floor, the risk of reduced visibility is minimised and group control is enhanced. Our platforms have been placed at progressively deeper depths starting from 6 metres and descending down to 26 metres. If you need a specific depth, check out our map.

For instructors that need even greater control and the benefit of depth progression from standing depth to a maximum of 4 metres, we also offer a confined water area accessible from the quayside. Please note that due to its limited size and popularity, this must be booked in advance.

Our training platforms are ideally placed for giving your courses 'added interest' too. Once you've completed your skills training, you can take your students off on a short guided tour of a number of major attractions, all of which are located within a very short distance of the platforms.
Please be considerate when using the training platforms. Vobster Quay is very popular with visiting dive schools, many of whom bring along trainee divers with little or no diving experience. If you encounter a group running through skills on a platform, please be considerate - we all had to start somewhere!
