"I did the advanced open water course. Rob is a fab (good looking) instructor.

His knowledge is impeccable and he is extremely passionate about delivering the best training possible.

He goes through everything clearly and made me comfortable before the dive and always safe in the water. The course is an excellent addition to the open water course and really helps builds your knowledge and skills. "

From John & Jules, course taken December 2018

"I would thoroughly recommend this course, I took it after a long break from diving.

The instructor to student ratio was really good on both days. Good classroom training and discussions followed by well controlled & safe dives.

Learned a lot from the course, instructors were friendly and helpful and when I take my next dive course it will be with Cardiff Scuba. "

From Chris Lloyd, course taken September 2018
