“Andark Lake”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Nice lake, lovely surroundings. Excellant new facilities. Ask about gear transport when you arrive and they will sort you out. Vis is poor at the moment but they are taking steps to sort it. Will be fine shortly. Give it a go!

“Absolutely Excellent Brilliant and AWESOME”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

I am delighted to write this review to say that Andark Diving and Watersports far exceed their reputation as being the best Dive Lodge anywhere in the UK. I have been extremely lucky over the years to work with some incredible Dive schools and lodges including 5* CDC in Vietnam, Malaysia and South America but Andark are the best.

To review them fully would require at least 20 separate reports as they offer so much. The new 6m lake is so fabulous that we used it for a TV Commercial to film some stunt work so their HSE Dive Instructors were on hand. The kit is all superb and bang up to date.

The shop is a full Aladdins cave and the best packed watersports shop I have ever been in. I left with armfuls of bargains and a very big smile. Henri Lloyd, SLAM, Musto, Aquapac, Suunto the list goes on and on. Without doubt the best watersports shop I have ever been in. the service from the staff was everso attentive and above all knowledgeable.

The Dive Pool was so professionally run and NOTHING was too much trouble even when I needed spare polar fleeces off they ran and got me some. The Helicopter training pod is just the most awesome thing as well.

Andark offered me so many things whilst I was there that a 4 hour visit turned into 10 hours and I left with a new bunch of friends. Hazel and Andy (the owner) are just the best people.

As a PADI Rescue Diver and Dive Medic I take recommendations extremely seriously and have never been so proud or keen to give a massive YES YES YES to these fine people.

Absolutely learn to dive with these guys and in January the new lake will open as well.

I would even say just to go there for a coffee and a chat and a nose as they are so welcoming.

5* isnt enough, I would actually award these people 100% and Ive not ever done that before.

“Try dive”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Had an introductory go at scuba diving, never done it before. Found the staff very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. A good experience and well worth ago as it is very reasonable cost when you consider that it lasted almost 2 hours and all the equipment is provided.
