  • Out training group sizes will be strictly limited to 4 students and two PADI professionals.
  • All equipment will be washed, sterilised between uses and stored in a well ventilated area for at least 36hrs before re-use.
  • If you are undertaking a course that takes more than one session your equipment will be issued to you at the start of the course and you will be asked to keep it and care for it between sessions, thus eliminating any chance of cross infection.
  • Unfortunately numbers in our pool facility and at dive sites are strictly limited at this time to allow for social distancing therefore may not be possible to allow spectators.
