“Professionalism at a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

On encountering Deep Blue Diving staff I was immediately made to feel extremely welcome. Their friendly caring attitude was only surpassed by their professionalism - after all they wanted to ensure that not only did you enjoy your experience with them but that you were safe and [naturally] survived to tell the tail. My wife and Daughter - both non divers - also were made welcome and very much enjoyed the atmosphere and company of the staff when they were not busy with divers.
I had brought my own equipment, excluding BCD which I was able to hire, however the quality and care of Deep Blue's equipment led to wish I had hired it all - it would have been cheaper than the additional luggage costs incurred.
My first time in the Atlanticand one which I enjoyed thoroughly, and wish to enjoy again in the future. After doing a variety of 4 dives with them all at different locations & depths from 31m to the 6m shelves, they still had many other options to dive - hence another reason to return.
I appreciated the trust they placed in me as a customer with their 'bar' area where you were trusted to tick off anything you consumed and were charged only when yo checked out - therefore no need to carry cash around with you, alhought they did provide a secure locker for your valuables. I was also able to store my kit with them until I was ready to collect - yes that even meant on those days after I had completed my last dive it was there drying in thir secure storage.

Only gripe was the price of the dives. In the past I have paid less than this whilst out for a days diving and got fed into the bargain. But as I have already said it was extremely welcoming and as such found it hard to taer myself away. Still looking forward to coming back though.

“2 second time here, still awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Returned here in May for the second time to do some diving and it was awesome as always. Some new faces, but all very friendly and professional. Had the pleasure of diving with Matt, Rob, Tyler and Julia on some dive sites I didn't get to visit last time around. Had a great time and I'll be back soon!
