We're a friendly group of buddies, divers and dedicated Instructors and Divemasters, based in Poole, Dorset - with some of the best diving in the UK right on our doorstep. We have enjoyed many dives together and we love to teach diving together too, hence Dive South Ltd. was born.

We offer PADI Scuba Diver Training courses at very competitive prices simply because we don’t have the overheads of a dive shop, dedicating our time to just teaching and diving.

We offer a very personal experience and our team make sure you have all the time and attention you need during your training, in a safe, fun, friendly and professional environment; so we never run courses of more than 4 people at a time. We also offer one to one tuition at minimal extra cost. Getting started is really easy and you can learn to dive from as young as eight and as little as £35!

Join us, unlike most clubs we don’t ask for membership fees! Our aim is for you to continue to dive regularly and become a confident and capable diver and with regular local diving around the South Coast, UK dive trips and social events, you will soon be bitten by the bug for the underwater world, just like us!!

Friday evenings throughout the month you will find us in the pool running training sessions. Whether you are just starting your adventure, looking to fine tune those newly acquired skills, try out that shiny new kit, a little rusty or just fancy a play in the pool? You are more than welcome to come and join in; just let us know.
