All types of diving
We are happy to list diving of all types – for holiday dives this will most often be some form of scuba diving (using Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus – SCUBA), but we do include surface supplied diving where appropriate. We also include freediving, where no breathing apparatus is used. Scuba diving comes in many flavours, so apart from the standard form of recreational diving, we also include providers offering: night, drift, deep, wreck, ice and cold-water diving. The more extreme sport of cave diving can be found in a separate section here. Dive and underwater photography also has a separate section.
Learn to dive courses
Also holiday courses covering beginners snorkelling and learn to scuba dive – weekend workshops, residential multi-day training camps or holiday packages that include instruction for all abilities, from total novices to those with experience wanting to improve their skills.

Why not try diving as a day activity before committing to a longer trip or holiday. There are opportunities across the UK, ranging from basic introductions, taster experiences, children's 'Bubblemaker' sessions, various PADI courses and intros and even a shark diving experience in Scotland. Locations include: Scotland, Cambridgeshire, London, Bristol, Devon, Dorset, Avon, Gwynedd, Surrey and Cheshire.
ENGLAND: Freediving taster session, with a twist
A day activity in Newquay, Cornwall, introduce the sport of freediving (diving without breathing apparatus) led by AIDA freediving master Ian Donald. The twist is that the session will also teach how to forage for food underwater; gathering sustainable foods with bare hands and seeking out edible seaweeds, as well as shoreline plants and herbs, molluscs and crustaceans. There are other freediving intro sessions on offer via the same link.
UK: Scuba diving with sharks
On these sessions, in Cheshire and Fife, you'll learn the basics of scuba diving before getting up close with sharks in an aquarium marine tank; here you'll meet several shark species such as sand tiger or angel sharks, plus hundreds of fish.
