Over a course of a week I completed FIVE dives with Wavecrest scuba Each dive was amazing for the following reasons. I never felt under any time pressure to complete checks or get ready ALL staff were friendly and approachable with lots of knowledge about the dive sites and wildlife. There was no silly questions and again all staff wanted... More

I have just got back after completing a full face mask course with Mark, Becci and the team at Wavecrest Scuba and must say they excel in all areas! I am a BSAC Dive leader diving for over 20 years but had never dived a full face mask before, I needn't have worried the clear and concise instruction and support... More

Interesting albeit cold dive (my choice). Was taken to Swanpool at Falmouth where we saw pipe fishes, dragonets and star fishes. Mark and Becci were both very responsive, friendly and professional 5 stars

I got to dive with Mark who obviously LOVES scuba diving, it made for a really enjoyable dive. I came from US on a full itinerary of UK stops, so was only going to be in Cornwall for a couple of days, Mark took care of everything and I let him make the call as to where we dove, which... More

Having wanted to try my hand at scuba for sometime I looked for a good local scuba school. I visited a couple but only Wavecrest conveyed the professionalism and confidence that made them the obvious choice. They suggested that I tried one of their trial dives in a pool and were patient and understanding of my fears, and soon put... More

My children have been learning to dive with these guys over the summer. They are so patient and my children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and their confidence has grown.

Booked my 2 boys (11yr old and 14yr old) onto the try dive session (Undersea Discover Scuba) which they loved! This included a pool session and a beach dive. At all times the instructors were incredibly patient, friendly and gave good clear instructions, so both kids felt safe at all times, with no reservations to ask anything. Transport between the...

First time diving, and unsure whether I would like it or not. But this company and the instructors were the most patient and helpful teachers I've ever had in any sport/subject. I had only paid for the taster session (PADI Discover Scuba) for the PADI Open Water Qualification and now I am hoping to continue and work on it until... More
