All our training is in line with the afore mentioned guide lines and recommendations. We will implement all reasonable precautions and steps to reduce the potential risk of Covid-19. This is an inclusive process where we introduce a pack for everyone including new and existing customers/divers out lining our policies and procedures in line with safety and hygiene to review prior to diving.
