Amazing water, friendly vibe. Best place to swim.
Jul. 2021 • Solo
Been swimming here for years, the colour and the quality of the water makes it my favourite place. But it is in the last year it’s really kept me sane. Always supremely safety conscious, the systems put in place to protect both staff and visitors have inspired confidence and they have managed to maintain a relaxed friendly vibe.

Simply fantastic place to swim! I was a complete newbie and the staff were great at showing me around and making me feel welcome. All sessions are lifeguarded so you know you’re in safe hands.

Beautiful place to swim and dive with professional courteous and friendly staff.
Jul. 2021
All my family have been coming to Vobster to dive and to swim for many years. We have always found the staff to be professional, courteous and friendly. They have done really well making the place safe and calm, with an easy to follow respectful set of rules, which have been key to ensuring a safe and happy environment fo us all.
It is not open as a family hang-out place for safety reasons. However it is welcoming to swimmers and divers of all levels. This place has kept me sane over the last year and I am hugely grateful to the staff for all the work they do and their kindness.

Happy Swim Place with Happy Staff
Jul. 2021
I've been coming to Vobster as a swimmer year round since 2015. It is absolutely my favourite place. The water quality is brilliant and the setting picturesque. What really sets it apart though are the staff. Friendly, low key and patient except when it comes to safety, when every single one of them is trained and alert. They managed beautifully to control numbers and institute infection precautions during the worst of the pandemic. It was one of the few places I continued to feel safe. They have rules, of course, to keep the experience as safe and pleasant as possible, but maintain a relaxed, friendly, family atmosphere regardless. **Please note it is NOT a place for the family to hang out. Entry is restricted to registered members and you must be over 16 for safety reasons.

A brilliant, friendly place to swim. The water is lovely and clear, the swimming route is clearly marked out and the staff (including great lifeguards) are super friendly and always on hand to answer any questions.

Rudest staff ever, never been spoken too in such a way as a customer before. They all need to go on some sort of course!

Not just for the Divers!
Jun. 2019
From a non diving point of view, there is enough to keep all types occupied for the day. It looks as if the diving facilities are very good both for experienced divers and novices. We did some kayaking whilst those that wanted to dive were looked after. A great little cafe and a dive shop to boot!

Great for Scuba Diving
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Great place for scuba diving and training. Good idea to join as a member as you get all sorts of discounts. Car parking is convenient and the quay is within walking distance. The food van serves hot food and drinks etc and is tasty and reasonably priced. The dive shop on site has a range of items for sale, they can also order you in as per your request. The staff are friendly and it’s a really nice place to be.
