Ok, I gave this place 3 stars which means I have to justify myself. The day started at 8 am and we were picked up by one of the owners, a nice guy called Alex, very pleasant and fun. From there we had a 20 min drive to the dive centre. We signed all the paperwork and we were put... More

Just returned from six weeks in Spain but before going I had researched Dive Centres and decided on 'Simply Diving', and I'm so glad I did, they are FANTASTIC!!! My 17 year old son needed a refresher before completing EFR, Rescue Diver and Enriched air, and my 15 year old daughter, who had never dived before, completed her Open Water,... More

This team with a leader like Simon is priceless. The way they carry out their regimes of inspiring and convincing people to dive is fabulous, the whole experience of the dive has left me spellbound.

Not being a confident swimmer might not seem a good starting point to learn how to scuba dive. But having tried a few times before and being completely fascinated by the whole concept of breathing and swimming underwater, I was eager to continue my engagement. To that end I booked a half day's discovery dive with Simon Bell's Simply Dive... More

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts Nick. And thank you for allowing us to introduce to the underwater world for the first time. Most divers who are very new to scuba do need some time to adjust to breathing and moving in a liquid environment! So we're glad you appreciated Esther's care and patience. It's also fantastic to hear we've... More

I finalised this course yesterday. It was supposed to have been finishe d on Wednesday but due to car trouble we had lost some time. Instead of calling in Force Majeure and rushing through the course Simon offered me to come back on another excursion and included a free dive with it. A classy and highly appreciated offer!
