Myself and my son decided to do our open water diving, we were complete novices and I was quite apprehensive. The course was great, very professional, always felt safe and looked after even 7 metres under water. I couldn't have asked for more patient instructors and they have a great sense of humour. If you are going to dive or... More

We did the discover scuba and spent a fantastic day with the guys at Wavecrest. We spent the morning in the pool practicing some skills and then travelled to Swanpool, Falmouth to try it in the sea! It was so much fun. Mark and the team are friendly and professional and we felt very safe in their hands. Can't wait... More

Me and my son both did a DSD course with wavecrest scuba and was delighted with the experience of both the dive and the professional instruction and explanation of all involved from the staff. Would highly recommend this for anyone considering to learn scuba diving. Really tempted to advance on to the open water qualification with wavecrest scuba, but because... More

I am delighted with the PADI Open Water Course that I recently took with Wavecrest Scuba. When you're 9 metres below the Atlantic Ocean with just a tank of air keeping you alive, it's great to know that you are surrounded by a team of passionate professionals. They are fully supportive of any concerns that you might have at any... More

Having never dived in the UK i was unsure about it... especially the cold!! The first day we tried to dive we were blown out of each site and... More

I have been diving for 16 years and I have seen many dive centres come and go in Cornwall. The Proprietor Mark has built a good business over eight years, this success proves that he runs the best diving business in Cornwall. His quality of instruction is second to none and an inspiration to PADI professionals such as myself. Mark... More

Completed our open water with Mark and his team at Wavecrest. The Wavecrest guys are brilliant. My 10 year old was a bit nervous at first but Mark took him at his own pace and got him qualified. Wish I had done this years ago. Highlight of the course? Swimming parallel to a 7ft Grey Seal only 3ft away on... More
