Learn to dive

COVID-19 UPDATE (30/03/21)

Regrettably, with the current COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the Scottish Government, we are not in a position to undertake any diving activities until the Country is further along its lockdown exit strategy.  We speculate that Qualified Divers may be able to return to the water at the end of April (providing social distancing rules are maintained at the surface), however at this point there is no clarity when training activities will be allowed to resume due to the heightened risk of the close interaction required between the students and instructors/dive masters.  

We are monitoring the situation closely, observing the interpretations in the other home nations and getting support from PADI.  Once we have direction from the Scottish Government we will of course provide updates here and on our Facebook page.

Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated, and I do hope we can get you out diving soon.


Learn scuba diving in Scotland with a PADI 5 Star diving and Instructor Development Centre based in Edinburgh. If you want to experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course – the world’s most popular and widely recognised scuba course.

If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, we offer taster sessions in the pool.
