We are planning several Dive trips around the world in 2019, many of these will be suitable to conduct diver training. These will be posted upon the website as they become available.
UK open water diving season:
Inland there are multiple sites all over the UK where you can dive year round. Visibility is often best in the winter and occasionally the chance to dive under ice occurs. However the water temperature often requires a increased thermal protection such as a dry suit outside of October to March. It’s common to use a dry suit in the UK all year especially in lake s as the temperature at depth often stays low.
Sea diving is typically run April through October due to sea state. UK weather being what it is sea dives can be cancelled at quite short notice. At times the sea can be warmer that fresh water but dry suit diving is usual most of the year.
Regards, SDC team
we will close at Noon on December 22nd and reopen on the January 1st as our normal timetable. Changes to this will be posted here before hand.
We hope you have a Merry Christmas & happy New Year.

I will try to update the posts if our compressor is down for periodic servicing. Oil changes being quite quick but filter replacement and air quality testing is a little more involved and usually means having the compressor off for the day.

We received an inquiry about this, unfortunately the message return phone number wasn’t clear. So for reference we do not hire out kit outside of training run by Surrey Dive Centre.
