“Amazing Experience With Great Instructors”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Whilst on holiday in Dorset we decided that a little scuba diving was needed and where better to do this than Swanage. We arranged to do a discover diving experience as we'd never dived before and this sounded like the best option. The course consists of all the safety theory first, which seems daunting but once in the water and going through the practice with the very patient and capable instructors this soon subsides. When they're happy that your safe off you go under the pier, it's amazing how many fish and items you see, always with an instructor so you feel very safe. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wishes to experience scuba diving

“A great team”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Recently dived with my diving club over a weekend. Cannot speak more highly of the skippers and the staff. Really knowledgeable and professional. Excellent range of dive sites to suit all levels. Very good value and the air fill service and dive shop were great. Boats all have lifts and very we'll equipped and comfortable. Will be back soon.

“Excellent diving - Kyarra, Swanage”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

I have dived with Divers Down a couple of times now and I recommend them to anyone wishing to do hardboat dives on wrecks near Swanage, Dorset. Their website is very good and lists their planned dives. Easy to book and helpful staff. The prices are reasonable and the boats are in good condition with diving lifts and safety kit. The shop on the pier is also useful for last minute bits of kit etc. Very efficient and well priced cylinder fills also available at the shop. If you do a dive with Divers Down I'd recommend a second dive under the pier - always lots of life and great for photography. I've dived the Kyarra with Divers Down and its a fantastic wreck. Many other wrecks available in the area too - Carantan, Valentine Tanks, Fleur de Lys, Aeolian Sky etc etc. Also drift dives, Old Harry's Rocks etc. Always a good day out!
