I completed my open water certificate with Academy Divers. All I had to do was turn up, all the equipment was there for me, and all good quality. The instructors were excellent, I was very nervous about learning to dive but they helped me overcome my fear and showed great patience. I wanted to complete my open water before going on holiday and as time was very tight the instructors went out of their way by going to Capenwray on extra days to get me through. There are regular meetings, we get together every other Wednesday and everyone is very friendly and welcoming. I have made new friends with academy divers. - Read More

I completed my PADI open water course with Academy divers and the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and let you work through the course at your own pace. If there was something you were struggling with the staff made time to go over it until the task could be completed.

I have completed several courses with Academy and find the service they provide and staff excellent - nothing is too much trouble. If you need extra time in the pool to gain confidence this is not a problem.

I decided to learn PADI Open Water, in order to dive whilst on my honeymoon in Mauritius. Andy and his team were very friendly, and made the experience understandable and easy. The facilities are great, and easily accessible off the M1. My initial intention was to learn as a holiday hobby. However, this soon changed, and I managed to complete my advanced course as well. Diving, in only a matter of months, has become a passion of mine, and this is all thanks to Academy Divers. I would recommend them to anyone just starting out, or looking to further their diving education. - Read More

I was just over 60 years of age when I approached Academy Divers to teach me to dive.
I was going to Australia and thought I would like to see the Great Barrier Reef close to.
With only 6 weeks to get me to complete the PADI Open water qualification my instructor, Andy Colley( now the owner of Academy Divers), was brilliant
His one-to-one instruction, his understanding of what needed to be done, and his willingness to put in all the time needed, were all second to none.
Although it was extremely hard work, I can honestly say that it was an amazingly enjoyable experience. Being taught by someone whose dedication, enthusiasm ( and persistence!) not only enhanced the learning situation, but really filled me with the confidence which led to success

Academy Divers opened my eyes to scuba diving! I did my PADI 'Open Water' course and I've now almost completed my 'Advanced Open Water' at Academy.

All of the instructors at Academy are very friendly yet professional in what they do.

They look after me well and operate in such a way that I feel very safe and well supervised yet making it great fun at the same time. />
They have a weekly club night, organise dive trips both in the UK and even overseas.

I would recommend them to anyone wanting to learn how to dive, or get back into this hobby. - Read More

As i was new to Diving and didn't know what to expect, i was a little apprehensive. My friend had mentioned Academy Divers to me. Not only was it an enjoyable experience but alot cheaper than alot of other diving schools i had previously called. I would recommend this diving school to anyone who is interested in taking up diving.

Academy Divers have taken me from being
a non-diver with trepidation for the Open
Water and sea to a qualified diver who looks
forward with much anticipation to our next
meeting/dive. They have opened a whole
new world to me based on their exceptional
staff, proficiency as Instructors, knowledge
of the subject matter and genuine
enthusiasm for the sport. I could recommend
them enough to anyone looking to take up
the sport.
