If a dive shop could be 6 star then this dive centre would qualify!
Prior to my arrival Katie & Sara were always happy to help - especially when I had to change my arrival due to a family emergency they were able to shift my diving sessions and offer alternatives.
I completed my dry suit, EFR, rescue and wreck courses and each was taught by a very knowledgeable instructor who not only knew the scapa flow area and wrecks well but, through speaking to them, have experience from all over the world which was very good to hear and gives a sense of comfort in their skills.
For the drysuit course there was plenty of drysuits to try from to get the right fit and loads of equipment available to get the right fit and set up for the dives.
The other courses all went well and even when the weather was very windy and logistics had to change everything was handled efficiently and professionally.
Throughout all the courses I always felt helped and supported and the instructors were able to answer all my questions (and I ask a lot!)
Operation wise everything was exceptional - I purchased a dive computer and was offered a personal set-up / guide from the resident equipment maker & specialist Ben. The facilities for classroom
learning were excellent as was the boat used for Scapa flow dives (big shout out to the bit crew who go above and beyond (fresh the or coffee after a dive is a big plus!!).
Equipment: all of the equipment was well maintained and looked after - the kit was prepared into your own box with everything needed inside. Most of the drysuits, gloves and good etc are made in-house which is helpful if any challenges as it is rectified by the next day ready again for your dives. The instructors and dive masters let you set up
your equipment / get sorted as much as you want but are on hand to help if needed.
As previously mentioned all of the instructors were excellent and also I have to mention the Dive Master Trainees who were all amazing and were very knowledgeable and were able to answer questions based on their training and about their experience which definitely gives ideas for future training opportunities for myself.
Overall an excellent dive centre; I always felt safe, supported and overall safe!
If you are wanting to dive Scapa Flow whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned diver then Scapa Scuba is the place to go! I will be sure to be back and bring diving friends to experience the great dives, staff and facilities / equipment.
