Learn to Dive with St Abbs Charters

We are a BSAC Centre and can teach a range for courses from beginners to technical. Danny is also an instructor with SDI/TDI and PADI and we can offer a full range of courses for all abilities.

We are based in St Abbs, Scottish Borders and run our training at some of the UK’s most iconic sheltered shore dive sites at Eyemouth or St Abbs.

Prices start from £50 a training dive and can be for a skills refresher, dry suit familiarisation, guided dive, finishing off existing training or a full training course from beginner to technical.

Give us a call to discuss your training needs and we’ll happily tailor individual or group training.

Not sure if diving is for you? We can arrange a try dive and if you like it we’ll deduct the cost off your diving course.

Please contact us to request a full list of the courses we deliver and the prices.
