Gatwick Scuba was formed in 2012 by Jason Linbourne a PADI Master Instructor who started his diving journey over 30 years ago. He has been awarded the prestigious PADI Elite Instructor accreditation for the past 3 years in succession and taught over 1500 courses since starting the company in 2012 along with the help of a team of PADI Professionals.
Gatwick Scuba aims to be flexible and to tailor it's courses to the customers’ requirements where possible but still maintain the high PADI standards required for training. Our aim is to introduce people to the amazing world of diving and ensure our customers have a great experiance whilst ensuring their safety at all times by having a greater ratio of staff to students than many of our competitors. This enables students to develop at their own pace and not to feel pressurized by others.
Diving does not only apply to the warm tropical waters but also the amazing adventures that can be had here in the UK. In order for our students to be comfortable all year round, Gatwick Scuba teach all their courses in DRY SUITS when in open water to ensure you are warm at all times.
We are pleased to offer some unique services such as home visits from the instructor's to provide a true one to one training experience or private pool sessions. This service may also be extended to a family or small group of friends.
Given that diving is a social pastime many students opt for a group session which are run in conjunction with our corporate partners London Scuba. These are held at their purpose built diver training facility in Lingfield, Surrey. Here you will get the oppertunity to meet like-minded people interested in learning to dive and hopefully meet your next dive buddy.
