We have used Swanage Diving a few times, most recently last weekend when we took a trip on Viper to Aeolian Sky. Comfortable boat, knowledgable skippers, good level of safety and attentiveness. Really can't praise them enough.

Really nice family run business, communication is easy and they are so accommodating. If there isn't anything booked on the slot you want then you can pretty much choose where you want to dive, dependant on numbers. The Mary Jo is a lovely boat with loads of space and nice deep seats. The skipper is really nice, gave a good... More

Thanks to Dan for a great day diving on Friday. I joined the group on the last day to complete my PADI open water and had a fantastic time. There was a great atmosphere with the other people on the course - and Dan was a super instructor and made me feel very reassured and safe. We did 2 dives:... More

Having recently taken the first steps on the PADI Open Water ladder, I was keen to take any opportunity to dive again. I'd qualified in Jamaica and did a follow up dive in Tenerife, so the prospect of getting into the cold water in the UK was a bit daunting. I exchanged a couple of emails with Dan before booking....

Me and my girlfriend have recently become certified PADI Open Water Divers. This in turn is thanks to Dan and his patience/teaching abilities. Dan is through and calm in his teachings of required skills. His vast experience and reassuring nature really help you to get to grips with both the physical and theory elements of the course. Everything was thoroughly... More

There were 3 others on the course and it was nice to meet new people and share the experience with them. My instructor Dan was really cool and made me feel confident to complete the skills we had learnt, especially... More

I spent four days doing a PADI open water course with Dan in Swanage. Dan was a great instructor, very patient and helpful, and clearly very experienced. He made it a lot of fun to learn to scuba dive. Swanage as a location has variable weather and visibility underwater, but does have some nice dive sites. The sea life under... More
