London Scuba - Since 1994
London Scuba is one of the largest scuba diving schools in the UK, having trained over 15,000 people since it started. The school was set up in 1994 by Ian Pattison, a highly experienced and accomplished PADI Master Instructor. Simon Gray & Steve Skinner joined the team in 2002 & 2005 respectively, and now run the school alongside Ian.
London Scuba is unique in being one of only a handful of PADI Dive Centres with its own purpose built facilities including a 3m deep indoor heated pool, this avoids cold shared public pools or a lane roped off on a Friday evening.
The pool is indoor & heated to 31-32 degrees. The majority at a depth of 3mts, with a skills ledge at one end at 1.4mts.
