“Wow new store swankey”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I have just been to Divecrew's new home in Crowthorn and wow. With a big window at one end and lights everywhere it has a light and spacious feel. The shop is a Scubapro dealer but also sells other manufactorers like Aqua Lung, shark Skin, Mares, Apeks among others. Suunto, the best dive computer, is sold here with an array of other computers. Sue and Martin the owners are also very open to suggestions if there is a particular bit of kit you would like them to stock or just get your hands on. With an onsite compressor they can fill air and Nitrox cylinders up to 300 bar. Good for divers and air gun shooters.

The shop has an onsight school that can take you from Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) through PADI's open water diver to Instructor. They also have instructors that can teach Tech Diving if you are so inclined. Divecrew do all their open water training in dry suits, which enables divers to stay warm in the coldest of waters. The confined dives take place in local swimming pools around the district which usually means there is a pool near you where you can start your adventure.

Sue and Martin have done wonders with the new shop and they or one of their staff will be happy to put the kettle if you wish to stay a while for a chat. Hot drink and browsing diving gear what better way to spend a cold spring afternoon.

“Best Dive Centre in the Home Counties”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Divecrew are fun, friendly and professional, always going that extra mile to help customers achieve their dream of learning to dive, and keep on diving.

I learnt to dive with them and when my kids wanted to dive I went straight back to them. My children are now Advanced Open Water Divers and I am a Maste Scuba Diver.

Now they have moved to much better facilities in Crowthorne the retail therapy is much improved :)
I would highly recommend a diving or shopping experience with Divecrew. Whether you want a Birthday Party, a Try Dive a warm water holiday or to progress your diving further, or just simply to team up with other divers, Divecrew are the people to go to.

“They can't hide from me that easily!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

You can move, but you can't hide!

Divecrew are great people, with very good products and services. They are most of all FUN, while being totally professional, and I look forward to diving with them.
