Things to do in isolation

We know the dive centre is closed and we can imagine that you're climbing the walls right now at home.

But don't worry, your diving adventures don't have to stop because of Storm Covid!

 

  1. Live Online Courses
  2. Independent Course Theory Study
  3. Isolation Gift Boxes

LIVE ONLINE COURSES

Spend your time in the house wisely and learn some new skills with our live online courses.

Hosted over Zoom, our passionate Instructors will deliver a structured course. Some are COMPLETELY FREE, some you can pay a small amount to get a qualification, some include eLearning to complete beforehand, others incorporate knowledge development questions into the presentation as you go. You're spoilt for choice!

Of course, there will also be the opportunity for discussions throughout. You'll meet likeminded people from all over the world, and perhaps even a new buddy to dive with!
