Why choose City Divers?

Our promise: you won't find a better standard of tuition anywhere. We support accelerated learning so you can study at home and miss the hours of boring lectures - PADI Referral in ONE WEEKEND!

We pride ourselves on small instructor/student ratios - 1 instructor to a maximum of 4 students, often 1 to 2 - which means a better quality course. You are assured personal and individual attention. PADI ( The Professional Association of Diving Instructors ) allow ratios of 1 to 8.

We teach you on top of the range equipment - scuba diving is an equipment-dependent sport. You don't have to buy equipment to enrol. It is all provided in the cost of course: there are no hidden extras. But we will give you all the help you need in choosing your own equipment and let you try different types of mask etc during your pool sessions.

Weekend training

Scuba diving is thrilling, it's challenging and it's fun.
