My three children (12, 11, 9) have just completed a beginners' course spread over several months and have all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not only have they all learned the basics of scuba-diving; their swimming and general confidence in the water have also greatly improved.The instructors are very knowledgeable, but also relaxed and friendly in their approach. Facilities are good... More

A business that actually appears to care about its clients! Very rare to have such great customer service, so much so you can forgive them the occasional blip such as not starting exactly on time - I mean, as long as you get the full hour does it matter when they start? They will go out of their way to... More

We dived with the Team at Dive Newquay out of Falmouth on their RHIB. The team were excellent and the diving was top class. They turned up on time, took us out on their top class boat and showed us some fantastic diving. We visited 2, 50m wreck sites diving on rebreathers. The skipper (Paddy) was top notch, boat was...

Friendly and accommodating staff and very knowledgeable but £198 for me and my boy to dive was not worth it I brought my own gear (not bottle or regs) and we used only one bottle each. And we were 8 on the boat. Saw a lobster and one fish despite them knowing there was tuna nearby for only the 2nd... More

Excellent boat trip - sadly did not see any dolphins or seals but the skipper was very informative and taught us a lot about the local history. He also educated us on rip tides, waves and swells which made our trips along the coast and caves safer as a family. The boat was very comfortable and fast. My son wanted... More

JT was a great instructor on our first ever family try dive. He made such a good impression and impact on my 14 yr old daughter that she wants to move to Cornwall and become a scuba diver... My younger daughter was also looked after very well and was given an experience that gave her confidence in the water with... More

I had a mixed day of diving with these guys. I'm Open Water certified and have logged 35 dives, but none in British waters so this was my first experience of British diving. The company were great, the diving was bad! There were storms a few weeks ago that churned the sea bed up and it's still not settled, so... More

Just had the most amazing day diving with these guys. I took my family for the 'try diving' after reading about these guys on a friends page. My wife, my self and my 3 kids have all enjoyed the day. A few hours in their purpose built pool running through all the basics and an sea dive afterwards and just... More

Pros: We were very lucky on the day; not only did we see and snorkel with grey seals as promised, we also managed to catch a pod of common dolphins while on the boat – of course this is not something which the centre can control. The boat is great fun; very fast and exciting especially for the kids. Cons:... More

We actually booked this in the shop after we were shown the review ratings on screen for the experience! I'm always a bit wary of a vast line of people trying to persuade you to get into THEIR particular boat to 'see seals' on holiday. The shop environment reassured me that this was a serious company and I thought the... More
