Let me tell you this, you’ll have a blast with Diving Adventures Scotland. I was vacationing from the USA to Scotland and naturally I want to see if I can get a dive in this beautiful country. I contacted Chris, and he got in touch with me very quickly and set up a time to go out on a few dives. We ended up going on 4 dives on two separate days. Chris was fun and charismatic during our travels to the site locations, and we got a good tour of West Scotland! But most importantly for me, I felt incredibly safe, comfortable, and well taken care of. The dives were beautiful, atmosphere welcoming, reliable and fun. I very much highly recommend Diving Adventures Scotland if you’re looking to visit Scotland.

PPBThrough every part of my training the team at Diving Adventures Scotland have been 2nd to none. They have brought my confidence and ability to a level where I am now doing Padi Speciality courses.  I’ve never had so much fun doing something I’m so passionate about.  If you considering learning to dive or continuing you training, give the guys at Diving Adventures Scotland a call, you won’t be disappointed…

I did my Padi Reactivate Course with Chris at Loch Long and also the Padi Deep Diver Speciality course.  Chris guided me through my skills.  No rushing, it was all done at my own pace and Chris never left my side.  Chris is an amazing chap and a great instructor, kind, patient, understanding, and, best of all, listened to my fears and assured me that all would be ok, he was right.  I can’t wait to head back to Loch Long, I don’t think five stars is enough, totally awesome these guys…
