PADI 5 Star Dive Centre Membership is awarded to progressive PADI Diver Shops that excel in providing scuba divers with a full range of scuba certification programmes, scuba equipment selection and scuba experiences. To qualify Waterfront Scuba has met elevated service and business standards.
Our dive staff have diver industry awards and commendations from PADI for services to diving and for student feedback received. Our instructors are dedicated to our students to bring you the best possible experience underwater.
2014 Is an exciting year for PADI and for students to the PADI Open Water Diver Course. The course has been completely overhauled and redesigned with new student and instructor materials, new skills for students to learn which make them better prepared to make the move from confined water to open water environments and will lead to a better standard of PADI Open Water Diver the world over.
PADI is the largest SCUBA diver training organisation in the world.
PADI has remained at the forefront of diver training for nearly 50 years with its innovative, cutting edge, system of diver training. This system allows divers to learn in the way that best suits them, with a comprehensive choice of self-study, online learning or instructor led styles, with a complete range of supporting materials and interactive media. With PADI issuing nearly a million certifications a year, and a safety record to be proud of, it’s not surprising that PADI is the number one choice of divers around the globe.
PADI is international.
PADI credentials are recognised and respected in over 180 countries, so divers know they will be recognised and welcomed wherever they travel.
PADI has high quality standards.
PADI’s work in the development of European Norms and ISO recognition for diving, and it’s leading role in organisations such as the Recreational Scuba Training Council, reflects its status as an influential stakeholder working to ensure that diving is the safest and most accessible it can be. Mirrored with these global efforts, PADI works tirelessly at a local level to enhance diver safety, progress good environmental practice and attract new divers into the sport.
PADI is diverse.
With more PADI dive centers and instructors worldwide than any other diver training organisation, PADI has more courses for divers to choose from and more holidays, adventures and experiences for divers to take part in. That’s more business for PADI Members and more satisfied PADI divers.
PADI is a community.
PADI’s new ScubaEarth, a virtual dive destination for all things diving, pulls all entities of the dive community together. So whether diving locally, diving abroad or exploring online, the PADI system is the winning combination
Our scuba diving school dive team are happy teaching all courses from basic beginners up to professional level scuba divers courses such as the PADI Divemaster and PADI Assistant Instructor Programmes. Our scuba diving school staff have been carefully chosen for their attitude and experience and dedication to the students that we teach. Every member of the team is dedicated to bringing you the best experience possible underwater. With us it is not about meeting standards it is about exceeding standards. Operating from modern classrooms with large screen projection facilities our training is delivered using the very latest software, power points and scuba diving programmes available. You will see our dive team use IPAD Tablets, Android Tablets, Playbooks, Laptop computers and projectors as part of your diver training.
Our scuba diving school and swimming pool and deep water facilities are some of the best available offering a clean safe environment for you to begin and continue your training as your experience underwater grows and your skill base grows. One of our pools is an Underwater Movie Studios where films such as Harry Potter, the Bourne Supremacy, Sexy beast and many music videos have been shot. This facility offers us and our students a unique training venue with crystal clear water heated to 30 degrees. It is an unequalled facility for those wishing to undertake Digital Underwater Photography courses, or simply just practice with the settings on your underwater camera.
Our active dive club enjoys both diving and non-diving events, regular special offers and brings a great social environment to your diving. We are very active on Social Media networks and you can find us on, Facebook, Twitter & You Tube and we update our blog with articles to help with your diving on a regular basis. We offer and run regular escorted diving holidays to the world’s finest diving destinations, both shore based and live aboard. These trips offer you the chance to dive with the Instructors that taught you to dive, they will be on hand to assist you in any areas of your diving, be it qualifying certification dives, taking further diving courses, or just to relax and get the most out of your dive trip.
Our dive team brings a considerable amount of experience in teaching diving, diving and escorted holidays. The team regularly dives in open water the world over, so you can be safe in the knowledge that you are not learning to dive from Instructors and Divemasters that spend all their time in swimming pools and do very little actual diving. Members of our dive team have been sought for overseas positions with some of the biggest dive operators.
Our equipment is some of the best available for students. We didn’t skimp on basic equipment we went for quality equipment from Oceanic for our dive school. It is serviced, it is stored correctly, it is regularly checked and maintained and more importantly it will fit you!!. Some local schools will put you in equipment that is neither serviced, falling apart and does not fit properly which puts you the student at a disadvantage to learning straight away.
When we run a trip we charter the whole vessel, we don’t book a holiday and just offer spaces to people and make it look like it something it is not. Buy chartering the whole vessel and with the experience of our dive team we bring custom escorted Dive Trips and Holidays to dive sites that other dive centres just don’t get to. We work closely with our travel partner Scuba Travel to bring you something new and exciting on every itinerary that we run. We run courses on our trips because our dive team have detailed knowledge of the dive sites and we select the best of these sites for your diving courses. Wreck courses that feature the Saleem Express, Rosalie Moller and the Thistlegorm all in one trip.
In short with Waterfront scuba you get a complete professional package from retail to diver training, to scuba diving holidays and trips and a great active dive club. Using top facilities and Equipment to bring you the student the best possible course and experience.
