The course consists of five Adventure dives:

At MK Scuba Diving we like to keep the group as small as possible to ensure that our instructors have plenty of time to look after you without rushing. The maximum students per group is six for the basic pack, four with the standard and two for the premium. We can organise 1-2-1 too, get in touch for more information.

We use different pools for the confined water dives:

  • Wolverton Leisure Centre – Addington Ave, Wolverton, Milton Keynes MK12 5GH
  • Leon Leisure Centre – Fern Grove, Bletchley, Milton Keynes MK2 3HQ
  • Inspire swimming pool – Butterfield Green Road, Luton LU2 8DD

For the open water dives we use mainly Stoney Cove – Sapcote Rd, Stoney Stanton, Leicester LE9 4DW. This is formal quarry which has great facilities and is ideal for dive training. They have a shop, gas filling station, changing rooms with showers and a pub where we usually go to debrief and fill out our log books!
