Small Groups and Unhurried Tuition
We specialise in small groups, never taking more than four people unless you request it! We can provide private and one on one tuition too.

If you learn to dive at a big dive school, you can find there is pressure to rush you through your course to make way for the next group. We will take time to explain the theoretical concepts that you need to know to learn to dive. Gradually we will take you from water waist deep to the wide open ocean teaching you all the techniques you need along the way!

What you will do

The course takes place over 4 days and includes 4 dives within it. You’ll also do some theory to learn about how to dive safely and have the most fun!


  • You begin in very shallow water to learn the basic techniques.
  • 2 dives (12m max) to build your confidence and practice what you have learnt.
  • 2 dives (18m max) will consolidate your learning and get you fish spotting.


  • Learnt from videos, your accompanying book and from us.
  • Knowledge reviews & quick quizzes solidify these simple underwater principals.
  • A final exam tests your knowledge – you’ll be amazed by how much you have learnt.

Here is just an example of how we can schedule a course.
