I had always wanted to experience Scuba Diving but had put it off so many times, but I'm not getting any younger so when the guys from Windmill visited my hotel swimming pool I decided to take the plunge. After a brief tour of the swimming pool I booked to go for a "Try Dive" ( 60 euro ) The... More

We did our first dive with Peter and he is simply amazing! Since it was our first, needless to say we were all very nervous and apprehensive but having him as our instructor chased away all those nerves. He has the most amazing ability to calm one down by just looking into his eyes (under water). Yes, my sister and... More

I had never dived before and was a bit apprehensive when we arrived on our first day. But Pete was absolutely brilliant - total trust from the outset which, let's be honest, when you're 9m below the surface is pretty crucial! We had a fantastic time - Pete and Simon were so patient and understanding. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Having never dived before we did a try dive. Our holiday now consists of filling the gaps between dives. It is incredible. We shopped around a lot before choosing Windmills. They all cost around 60 euros, they all offer the same amount of time in the water and they all go to the same dive sites. The only thing to... More

After visiting a few dive shops with varying prices we decided to go here for a try dive. It was definitely the right decision! It was an absolutely amazing experience and the staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgable. We dived at Green Bay where we fed fish by hand and then continued to swim deeper to where there are statues... More

Had an intense program organised by Simon and Alex over the week. Managed to get 2 dives in a day and completed my Nitrox, Deep and Dry suit courses. Visited some wonderful dive sites and received amazing tuition and guidance throughout. Their expertise and passion for diving delivered in such a friendly way increased my confidence and knowledge tenfold. Looking... More

I was on holiday in Cyprus, and decided in the last minute to take the Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN) Course. After searching around on the internet, I discovered Windmills Diving School and the SSI Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN40) Gold Course which included two sea dives. After making contact with Windmills by e-mail, they offered me to have the two sea... More
