Excellent and well run dive centre. Scapa flow brings with it challenging diving but it’s worth it. From initial communication through to our guides and instructors Scapa Scuba were just fantastic. Thanks Rob for showing patience

Very good three days with Scapa Scuba. As per the title - professional, patient and flexible - which is what I needed as a newbie. Rough weather to begin with but SS have been at it long enough to have plenty of workarounds. Everyone I met was helpful but never compromised safety. Indeed one emergency ascent carried out calmly. Look forward to working with them again.

Diving in Scapa Flow... what an experience. The wrecks here are truly special, and Scapa Scuba does a fantastic job showing them off. Everyone at the shop is friendly, professional, and knowledgable; and they truly appreciate the history of this place. And of course, comfort/safety are clear priorities. Be sure to book in advance as they fill up in high season!

I spent six days in August diving here in Scapa Flow with Scapa Scuba, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. Rob and Adrien were both outstanding dive guides, extremely professional and exceptionally knowledgeable about the wrecks, and it was a great pleasure to dive with them. Over the course of the week we dived six of the seven German High Seas Fleet wrecks (two dives a day, mostly nitrox, no decompression, max depth 40 meters), along with a few others, and everything was top notch. Besides being a great dive operator, Scapa Scuba is an excellent dive shop as well, stocked with anything that you might need for diving here—I was happy to pick up a new Fourth Element top (my favorite maker of drysuit undergarments, and much appreciated in the 13-degree water), and even a set of spare gloves and O-rings for my Kubi dry glove system. Overall a fantastic week of diving, and I’m looking forward to coming back!

My daughter and I did a 'try dive' on the block ships wrecks by the Churchill barriers. We've dived before, but in warm, clear water. The cold (about 13C) and murky water of Scapa was a bit daunting, as was the dry suit equipment required. The whole Scapa Scuba crew, however, from the excellent help we got doing our booking to the fantastic divers who guided us through the process, were great. It was highly professional and done with our safety and enjoyment clearly as their priorities. Getting the chance to see a real life shipwreck in their company was amazing and made for a day I'll remember for a very long time. Although they may not have converted me to cold-water diving, they were great and highly recommended.
