Scuba diving training Bedfordshire


Humongous thanks to the most tolerant and supportive instructor I could ever have wished for! Today's dive in the Lake was awesome and I loved every minute! Next dive - Hikkaduwa in Sri Lanka in 3 weeks!!!
Underwater Adventures have blessed me with a whole new world. Please ensure you contact them for all your scuba inquiries! Stephen is an exceptional instructor and the other
divemasters involved really have been outstanding throughout my 6 months of training and preparation... it has been a long road but I am over the moon. I am now a PADI open water scuba diver and immensely proud of myself!

Gibraltar is the gateway to the Mediterranean with a rich history and the confluence to the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, it offers a wide range of wrecks and marine life. Since the 18th century, Gibraltar has been an important military base for the UK, and has such the port and the royal navy dockyards have been kept busy with ships from all over the world. This has meant that numinous ships have sunk in the area after being attacked and trying to make their way back to the dockyards without success or being attacked by waiting submarines leaving the harbour. This has led to a large number of wrecks all around the area, which along with a number of artificial reefs from the Helping hand Trust which start creating artificial reefs around Gibraltar in 1973 to help marine life, means there is a huge amount of great scuba diving to be had both close into shore and further out.

The marine life around Gibraltar is varied and abundant thanks to the help of which has been protecting and encouraging the marine life around Gibraltar since the early 70’s much to the joy of the local scuba divers. The rich reefs, both artificial and natural, around the coast offer a home to hundreds of different species of fish and if you are lucky you might get to see some of the local cetaceans such as dolphins and whales which pass through the area regularly making Gibraltar a hidden secret paradise for scuba divers from all over the world.
Has a dive club we are planning to run our first scuba diving trip to Gibraltar from the 23rd of June to the 26th of June this year. We plan to fly out on Thursday the 23nd so we can dive Friday and Saturday before heading home on Sunday so we only have to use two days' holiday. The two days of diving will include a night dive on the Friday with two dives each day for a total of 5 dives during our stay.

The cost of this trip will be £455 each which includes the 5 dives with tanks and weights and 3 nights' stay at the Holiday in Hotel based on two sharing each room with the full payment due when booking. There is a max of 20 divers on this trip and it will be popular so if you are interested please let us know ASAP (Contact US)

I would suggest the Easyjet flights EZY8905 and EZY8902 as these are the cheapest at the time of writing this but your flights are up to you. Transfers to and from the airport are again up to you but if you use the same flights as mentioned above I would be happy to arrange the transfer for you.
Young divers club

With lots of younger divers learning to scuba dive and we have decided to start a young divers club to better meet their needs. This club is for scuba divers aged 8 to 15 with pool sessions, open water dives for those old enough, and discounts on PADI seal team and master seal team course for those who have not yet done the PADI open water course.
This is a great chance for all the younger divers to get to know other divers around their own age while keeping up with their own scuba diving skills.

On the second to last Saturday of each month, there will be pool sessions at Polam swimming pool in Bedford from 5 to 7 pm, all equipment is provided. If there is a high demand for spaces in the pool on these occasions, we will add an extra hour from 4 to 5 pm for the younger scuba divers to make sure there is plenty of room for all the divers to enjoy themselves while practicing the skills they have learned on their earlier courses
Every qualifying weekend there will be a guided dive on the Sunday afternoon. All members who are open water qualified will be able to join for the dive, the dive equipment hire, and the dive guide and safety diver are included in the cost of the dive so you will only need to pay the dive site entry.
For those aged 8 to 10 who are not yet old enough to have completed the PADI open water course, we can use these Saturday pool sessions to go over what they need for the PADI seal team and Master seal team courses which they will be able to apply for upon completion of the necessary dives for just the cost of the PADI registration fees.

All young divers’ members will get a 10% discount on all courses after the PADI open water course and a 10% discount on the standard equipment hire fees from underwater adventures on any other dive trips they do either with underwater adventures or any other dive company.
In March and April of each year, we will run a dive trip to do warm water diving, this dive trip will be aimed at the young diver’s club so all dives will be within the depth limits or courses will be offered on the trip to allow the young divers to do deeper dive if they want to.

Membership is just £11.50 per month

Blue sharks in Cornwall

Over the weekend of the 8th, 9th, and 10th July, we will be heading down to Porthkerris to stay in the cabin on-site and send the weekend diving with the plan to head out on the 10th July to spend the day in the deep water off the south coast of Cornwall looking for and swimming with the blue sharks.

Blue sharks are an amazing and beautiful shark found in the deep waters off the southern coast and getting to swim with them is an amazing experience. Due to the depth of the water, we won’t be actually scuba diving with them, but we will be using chum to attract them to the boat where we will be able to get in the water and swim and snorkel with them. The great thing with this trip is that due to the time of year and the location, there is a good chance we will also come across other really cool marine life including Whales, Dolphins, and Basking Sharks, so this is a dream trip for people who would like the chance to see come of the best marine life the south of the UK has to offer

Porthkerris is a diver’s haven with all we need to do some great diving within easy reach, and you can find out more about diving Porthkerris by clicking here. But this Porthkerris trip with the added bonus of a blue shark trip adding the cherry on top makes for one of the best dive trips we can offer and below is a video of our last blue shark trip in Cornwall to wet your appetite.

The stay at Porthkerris is £40 per person per night with the cost of diving Porthkerris included. This price in based on a 3-night stay, you don’t have to stay for the full 3 nights but you do need to pay for the 3 nights but this still makes it one of the cheapest long weekend dive trips on offer here in the UK. The blue shark trip is an extra £100 per person and includes a full day on the boat and we will be heading between 15 and 20 miles offshore, and this is the cheapest blue shark trip I have found on the south coast of the UK. We will be sorting out car-sharing and cooking most meals at the cabin to keep the cost of the trip down as these can add up quickly.
We have a maximum of 8 spaces in the cabin and 12 spaces on the boat so if there is enough interest I will look at booking rooms in the main house which are slightly more expensive and space will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis so if you are interested in this trip please let me know as soon as you can and I will need the 50% deposit in January to confirm you space on this trip. to book your space on the trip please get in contact with us
