Explore the underwater world
Diving in the UK is up there with best scuba diving in the world. No, really! It offers the most thrilling, challenging and rewarding diving you are ever likely to come across.
Discover a completely new environment
The UK has a diverse marine environment and more shipwrecks per mile of coastline than anywhere in the world. We have a real divers’ paradise right on our own doorstep. You can dive with seals and basking sharks, explore reefs with their myriad of fish or marvel at ornate soft corals or kelp forests, all within UK waters.
It’s not all about warm water, crystal-clear visibility or sunbathing in the surface interval. It’s about the challenge, the excitement of watching a shadow slowly resolve into a wreck, the pleasure of discovery, and not forgetting… it’s enjoying steaming hot tea and bacon butties like never before.
There are many different reasons why people take up scuba diving. For some, the thrill of experiencing weightlessness and moving in three dimensions is reason enough, but for many there are other reasons; underwater photography, studying marine life, discovering shipwrecks, wreck diving and exploring coral reefs.
