I had a mixed day of diving with these guys. I'm Open Water certified and have logged 35 dives, but none in British waters so this was my first experience of British diving. The company were great, the diving was bad! There were storms a few weeks ago that churned the sea bed up and it's still not settled, so... More

Just had the most amazing day diving with these guys. I took my family for the 'try diving' after reading about these guys on a friends page. My wife, my self and my 3 kids have all enjoyed the day. A few hours in their purpose built pool running through all the basics and an sea dive afterwards and just... More

Pros: We were very lucky on the day; not only did we see and snorkel with grey seals as promised, we also managed to catch a pod of common dolphins while on the boat – of course this is not something which the centre can control. The boat is great fun; very fast and exciting especially for the kids. Cons:... More

We actually booked this in the shop after we were shown the review ratings on screen for the experience! I'm always a bit wary of a vast line of people trying to persuade you to get into THEIR particular boat to 'see seals' on holiday. The shop environment reassured me that this was a serious company and I thought the... More

Amazing! Staff were unbelievably friendly and patient. We were a party of 8 including 4 children (3 young ) my son (6) was apprehensive about the possible speed of the boat, the staff reassured him he would be in control and he literally was . He was able to steer the boat and fulfil a little dream at the same... More

I signed up for the two day SSI free dive course. I've never tried it before. There was good communication before the weekend and a warm welcome on arrival. The instructor Robyn was very engaging and knowledgable. I was joined by two other students. A morning covering the basic principles in the class room and pool was quickly followed by... More

I had a brilliant experience snorkeling. The staff were very helpful and kind. The lady who took us to the water was so friendly and really made me feel at ease in the water. Not only was she really helpful whilst I was getting to grips with the snorkeling, she was also very knowledgeable about the fish and plants we... More

We took our 2 daughters, aged 6 & 4, on the sea safari. The ride out was fun for the girls and informative for us. The guide gave us lots of interesting facts about both the coastline and the wildlife. We were lucky enough to see quite a few seals and lots of jellyfish. The journey back was a bit... More

Dive Newquay is an amazing place with excellent staff. I really enjoyed snorkelling for the first time with Robyn who is a fantastic instructor. I was nervous at first but she made me feel at ease and I really enjoyed the experience-Thank you Robyn. Next I tried the 'taster dive course' - with the team work of both the instructors... More
