    My son was invited to a dive party at Urban dive centre. I was unsure what to expect but what an awesome surprise. There were 8 10year old boys that can be a handful most of the time. They had a briefing and learned some hand signals and then the fun started. One at a time they went down, played Frisbee under water and then dived out treasures from the wreck. What an amazing afternoon spent in a stunning environment.

    I completed my certification for the open water course recently.

    Thank you for the professionalism and the patience that you offered me.

    I am very grateful to you for assisting me in fulfilling my dream!!

    An extended thanks to Shaun Collen. He is an asset to urban dive, he offers loads of patience and motivation.

    I will definitely recommend urbandive to anyone considering taking up Scuba.

    In conclusion, Urban Dive is a school with a difference offering that personal touch and experience!

    We are a family of 5. Urban Dive has trained all of the family and have been helpful in accommodating training of my two daughters who are aged 10 and 12 to Junior Open Water Advanced and Advanced levels. Training youngsters can be a major challenge.

    Urban Dive are especially sensitive in providing the right instructor to match the customer. For example, in training my children they changed our initial instructor to an older more mature instructor, Hilary, who is wonderful with the kids and yet firm enough to keep them focused and disciplined. Hilary is patient and has the experience to deal with different people both in and out of the water. In my wife's training they again allowed Hilary to train as my wife has limited right arm movement and is nervous in the water.

    Dave and his team work hard and strive to provide the best training, advice and pricing. Dave has provided a wealth of advice on selection of suitable hard and soft gear for all of us and in my wife's case provided excellent advice in reconfiguring hard gear such as BCD and Regulator set to accommodate her physical limitations.

    Urban Dive has shown me that they are not just about churning out qualified scuba divers like a sausage factory. They are flexible enough to accommodate customers who want to take the standard training schedule and to change the standard plan to accommodate customers with special needs and who may need to take the schedule at their own pace.

    The whole family really enjoys going to the club which is relaxed and fun. In general club members are very diversified and discussions at regular monthly social events are not just all about diving.

    Facilities at Urban Dive are very good and Dave works his team well to ensure that they are clean and well maintained.

    There is a real passion at Urban Dive. People enjoy what they are doing. This rubs off on customers and creates a very real sense of belonging and that your thoughts and wishes are important to Urban Dive. The Urban Dive team do this very well and manage to balance the "welcome" and "personal" factors that lead to customer satisfaction with the stresses of running a busy and very popular scuba diving center.

    Highly recommended to anyone.

    I did my Open Water diving course with Urban Dive and I was really impressed. In fact, I injoyed it so much that I am going to do my Advanced diving course through them as well. I will definitely do all my preferred diving courses through Urban Dive. If you receive great service from someone, why try someone else?

    The facility/shop was also very clean and neat and they have all the latest gear and equipment.

    I would definitely recommend Urban Dive to anyone who would like to do any courses in PADI.
