Diving in Scotland
Surrounded by water, so much marine life and a multitude of wrecks, it’s no wonder Scotland is a scuba diver’s paradise.
Plus… learn to dive in Scotland first and you are then able to dive anywhere else in the world.
Not only do you have a country which is almost completely surrounded by the sea, there are numerous lochs and inland waterways to explore too. With Scotland’s history of seafaring and shipbuilding, unsurprisingly, there are countless wrecks surrounding our shores, each with a tale to tell, from Spanish galleons and sunken submarines to Scapa Flow’s wartime legacy, including the remains of the once mighty German Navy’s High Seas Fleet, so dramatically scuttled at the end of World War One.
And for those who are inspired by the diversity of marine sealife, or the sheer beauty of the natural world of underwater reefs, you are spoilt for choice.
Another great advantage of diving in Scotland is…
If you learn to dive here with Central Scotland Dive Club (or C-Divers for short) your SAA/CMAS diving qualifications, skills and experience will be recognised worldwide. So, whenever you have the opportunity to scuba dive in any of the exotic locations abroad, you’ll be able to make the most of your holiday and dive confidently, having already completed your training at home. You may also find your levels of skill and competence to be higher than your fellow divers abroad.
