Diveworld came about in 1999 because we wanted to dive more regularly, we found others then wanted to join us, a group was formed which became a club and so on. It could be said that the growth has been organic. We have grown into the roles that are required, becoming instructors because divers wanted to be instructed etc., etc.
Our current position is one of a proud PADI Five Star Instructor Development Centre. This rating assures a quality of training right across the spectrum of scuba activities from Bubblemaker to Master Instructor.
Beyond that, we still want to dive more regularly so the Diveworld club (free to all divers) is an active, friendly part of the business, aimed at keeping divers active. Monthly dive trips are organisd around the UK, from the highlands of Scotland to the pointy bits down south in Plymouth. We don`t leave it there, for more exotica we have a range of worldwide excursions without limit. Philipines, Indonesia, Caribean, Maldives, Norway and our old friend the Red Sea in Egypt are a few of the destinations organised regularly.
Diveworld is a true PADI IDC, having our own resident PADI Course Director not just a visitor. We boast a range of instructors from PADI Open Water Instructors right up to PADI Master Instructors so there is ample, constant support & mentorship no matter what level of diver you are or want to be. Our PADI Divemaster Internship programme is a popular and integral part of Diveworld activities, and a great gateway into professional scuba. A decision was made in the early days that quality of training would be our benchmark, we do not chase to compete for the last penny, but aim for the highest levels of quality and safety. Our students can then benefit from the extras we put into our training courses. You will find cheaper, you will not find better!
