Gatwick Scuba aims to be flexible and to tailor courses to its customers’ requirements while complying with the high PADI standards. Our aim is to introduce people to the amazing world of diving. This does not only apply to the warm tropical waters but also the amazing adventures that can be had in UK diving.

In order for our students to be comfortable all year round Gatwick Scuba teach all their courses in DRY SUITS when in open water. This does require a Drysuit orientation before the Open Water element of the course which is held at our pool on the Frinday evening 19:00 - 21:00 for events at Wraysbury and Thursday evening 19:00 - 21:00 for events at Vobster Quay.

All Gatwick Scuba customers get FREE membership to our dive club to attend our Club pool evenings and trips.

We are pleased to offer some unique services such as private pool sessions for individuals or a family or small group of friends. (This will need to be discussed in advance of booking.)

Given that diving is a social pastime many students opt for a group session which are run at our purpose built diver training facility in Lingfield, Surrey. Here you will get the chance to meet like-minded people interested in diving.

With our own Course Director we are also able to run taylor made IDC, MSDT and IDC Staff courses to suit our customers needs, all in our own purpose built training facility with a heated 3m deep swimming pool.
