Here are some comments from our previous customers....

"Thanks to both Rob and Brennig for a thorough and enjoyable rescue course.

Definitely the biggest jump in intensity of the courses but thoroughly interesting and very realistic and I feel I have developed greatly as a diver.

Would definitely recommend Cardiff Scuba for any scuba courses as you definitely feel you have worked for the course rather than just turning up!"

From Alex Joseph - PADI Rescue Diver, course taken March 2019

"A massive thank you to Cardiff Scuba with special thanks to Simon Kirkham-Jones. What an amazing, patient and knowledgeable instructor he is. From the classroom to the final dive Simon made the experience fun, exiting and safe.

I feel confident to dive again with a buddy and I started as a complete novice.

Thanks also to the Dive Master Brennig and TDM Andrew for stepping in to help me when I needed them.

I thoroughly recommend Cardiff Scuba's PADI Open Water course."

From Andy Reid - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken March 2019

"Such a fantastic course and experience. Rob and his team made every effort to make the training fun and informative in theory sessions, pool sessions and the final dives in the quarry. They always made sure everyone was happy and confident with what they were doing, and were very patient if anyone was struggling.

I am so grateful to them all and plan to be back in the future to further my training!
Couldn't recommend Cardiff Scuba more! "

From Chloe Lake - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"Had an amazing time diving with Rob and the Cardiff Scuba team! They made diving into a freezing quarry at 9am a right laugh.

Thank you to Simon & Brennig, they were amazing. I felt totally safe diving in open water even though I'd only met them a few days earlier.

Simon was an utter delight, he even went the extra mile to help me with some difficult math problems.

I don't have a single negative thing to say about the experience, I'm actually sad to see it go, and I feel confident to go diving in the future.

10/10 would recommend x "

From Lydia - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken January 2019

Brilliant experience, would highly recommend "

From Emily Bellamey-todd - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken January 2019

"Absolutely loved the course. The instructors are brilliant and very supportive!

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Thank you to the team, and a special thank you to Rob! Rob was particularly helpful in calming my nerves, and helped me ease into doing the skills in the open water dives!

Thanks again to all involved! Extremely happy to say I’ve passed and had a great time in doing so! "

From Emily Bellamey Todd - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken January 2019

"One of the best (and not last) courses I have completed. Every session was fantastically awesome, whether in the pool or the quarry.

This has opened me to many more underwater adventures that I cannot wait to experience.

The instructors took safety and the course very seriously which made me feel more confident and secure during the course.

They were also such admirable and lovely people, which made the course extra enjoyable.

Thank you Cardiff Scuba!"

From Alexandra Radziejowska - SDI Openwater Diver, course taken February 2019

"What an experience !
I rate Cardiff Scuba and the whole team 10/10 !

The experience I had with Scuba Cardiff has been amazing , from the day me and my partner started making contact to enrol until the very last dive as part of our Open Water Course !

Rob made everything simple, objective and super easy to understand. Also assisted every time we needed in terms of practice or just having a couple of questions...

Rob also made us feel part of a diving family/community, something that grew so much in the past weeks that actually made us book the Advance Adventure Diving course already and really making me think to drop everything and pursue a diving career.

Thanks again !

Legend Rob !

See you in 2 weeks for Advanced !"

From Ricardo Torrao - SDI Openwater Diver, course taken February 2019

"As always, a big thank you to the guys at Cardiff Scuba for teaching an intense but rewarding Rescue Course.
Definitely consider taking this next step with Cardiff Scuba if you want to increase your responsibility and role within the Dive community!"

From James Preece - PADI Rescue Diver, course taken February 2019

"It was an intense course which although physically and mentally very demanding, was extremely rewarding. I think I slept 12 hours solid that same evening!

Please pass on my thanks to your team who went that extra mile to not only provide realism to the scenario based exercises, but for their superb mentoring throughout. I would like to personally thank you for your patience with us and passing on your knowledge.

Very much looking forward to continuing my development with Cardiff Scuba over the coming years"

From Richard Spence - PADI Rescue Diver, course taken February 2019

"I'd like to thank Simon and Cardiff Scuba for the training I received on the PADI Advanced Openwater course.

I look forward to using the skills I've learned. Wicked few days! Can't wait to book the next course. Thanks guys. "

From David Mc Guire - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken February 2019

"Waited two years to find the right course to get my PADI training. Best decision I ever made to complete with Cardiff scuba.

The ratio of instructors to students is amazing with 1 to 2 teaching throughout all my dives.

Special thanks to Rob, Michael, Andy and Gareth who all helped me achieve this "

From Lewis Steere - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"Thank you so much to Rob for making the course so enjoyable, his passion for what he's teaching is so encouraging and makes the whole course so fun and engaging.

It's a great experience made even better by the team who make you feel so at ease the entire way through the process - even when you have to get into freezing cold water at 9 in the morning!

I won't hesitate to get in contact if I want to pursue any further dive courses, even if it does mean I have to pay my outstanding chocolate fines, thank you again!"

From Alex Fraser - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"The course was very well set out and organised by Cardiff scuba. Rob was an excellent instructor making sure we were safe at all times and he helped us understand key skills to diving, as well as making it a fun and enjoyable experience at the same time."

From Jeremy Grout - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

Thank you for everything! "

From Zsofia Toth - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken October 2018

I am grateful for the help I've received with any problems I had during the dive, it certainly made me feel safer and more relaxed.
I would recommend this course to everyone considering it as it makes your first diving experience comfortable with lots of fun :)

"Great Course. Great Team.
Sign up, be scared and have fun. I did. "

From Lewis Ford - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"I did the advanced open water course. Rob is a fab (good looking) instructor.

His knowledge is impeccable and he is extremely passionate about delivering the best training possible.

He goes through everything clearly and made me comfortable before the dive and always safe in the water. The course is an excellent addition to the open water course and really helps builds your knowledge and skills. "

From James Troughton - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken December 2018

"An exhilarating weekend spent with really great instructors, who were both supportive and extremely professional.

Thank you Rob & Simon (& James too).

Hope to see you again to continue to improve our skills and knowledge.

John & Jules"

From John & Jules - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken December 2018

"I can’t thank the Cardiff Scuba team enough for investing all of their time, expertise and patience in us students throughout the course.

As a total novice, singing up to my first Scuba course was a big commitment (financially, time, effort etc...) but by the end of it I promise it will feel like an absolute bargain if you let Cardiff Scuba guide you through it.

I can’t praise the professionalism or enthusiasm of the entire team enough. Just beware of the chocolate monster! "

From Rhys Edwards - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"I like to thank Rob and the team at Cardiff Scuba for the training I received on the PADI Openwater course. I look forward to using the skills I've learned. Wicked few days! Can't wait to book the next course. Thanks guys. "

From Dave Mc Guire - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"I had an amazing time learning all the skills for an Openwater diver with the help of some very good looking instructors (especially Rob).

They make it very fun and enjoyable along the way as long, as you are willing to put in the work and time. It is totally worth it in the end though. "

From Tom Wakeling - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken November 2018

"I would like to say a massive thank you to the entire team at Cardiff Scuba for helping me to complete my PADI Openwater qualification. They've all gone above and beyond to accommodate me and my ears (I have suffered from ear problems all my life which make it difficult to equalise). They happily let me reschedule my dives many times due to my ears and even provided refresher pool sessions.

Their extensive knowledge on equipment means I now have the perfect mask which allows me to dive and equalise with ease. Thanks to their dedication I can actually become a marine biologist!!

THANK YOU!! :) "

From Jasmine Toole - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken October 2018

"I would thoroughly recommend this course, I took it after a long break from diving.

The instructor to student ratio was really good on both days. Good classroom training and discussions followed by well controlled & safe dives.

Learned a lot from the course, instructors were friendly and helpful and when I take my next dive course it will be with Cardiff Scuba. "

From Chris Lloyd - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken September 2018

"Would like to thank Rob, Simon and the team for the continuation of my courses from Openwater to Advanced Openwater diver.

Really enjoyed the weekend I’ve learned new skills and built up my confidence levels . If you are thinking of doing a try dive or a course I can recommend Cardiff Scuba very approachable and professional "

From Will Davies - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken September 2018

"Just finished a great weekend increasing my dive knowledge, experience and confidence with Cardiff SCUBA.

These guys have an organised and professional but approachable and fun teaching culture, which has given me a big leap in my SCUBA skills and knowledge.

Thanks again Rob, Simon and the team and look forward to seeing you all soon! "

From James - PADI Advanced Open Water, course taken September 2018

"Just wanted to thank Rob, Mark, Simon, Julia and the rest of the team for an awesome week of training. The instruction was of very high quality and every step was delivered in a way to make the students relaxed in completing there skills. I highly recommend anyone who wants to learn to dive to do their training through Cardiff Scuba"

From Trev - PADI Openwater Diver, course taken August 2018

"I had a fantastic time, as im sure we all did.
I found the instruction, the set up and the facilities second to none. The build up of trust with the equipment and instructors is also second to none.
Thoroughly love the diving and once again thanks for an amazing time. Kev "
