About Us

In 2011, we will celebrate our 25th anniversary of providing exceptional quality and value holidays to our Customers, and to add to our portfolio of destinations and expertise, we have launched a new division, The Scuba Place.

We have deliberately partnered with the best Dive Centres we could find, having visited them, dived with them and experienced for ourselves the level of service they provide. Our standards were, as you would expect, extremely high!

Our destinations will include the major Red Sea resorts of Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, El Gouna and Taba, complemented by a fleet of the very best live-aboard safari boats. Stunning diving, and only 5 and a bit hours from the UK!

Cuba however has to be the jewel in our crown – amazing reefs, first class wrecks, crystal clear warm waters, and most importantly, exceptional marine life.

With excellent facilities for the individual diver, dive clubs, and divers with families, Cuba is a real gem – and the most important bit is that it is extremely good value too!

With resorts suitable for all types of diver in Guardalavaca, Santa Lucia, Varadero and the Cayos, and custom dive trips to other resorts, Cuba offers everything - even live-aboard safaris on comfortable boats, diving in virgin territories where shark encounters are guaranteed! Lemon sharks, silky sharks, black and white tip, caribbean reef sharks, grey reef sharks and nurse sharks are daily encounters. Ask us about the peak seasons for hammerheads, mantas and whale sharks too - Cuba really does have it all!

Manta rays, whale sharks, Caribbean reef sharks and even a 'family' of Bull Sharks that you can dive with make up the big stuff, and the macro life is plentiful on the extremely healthy reefs and walls.

And don't forget the wrecks! The remains of the Spanish fleet in Santiago De Cuba, the Russian destroyer and other such craft in Varadero, trawlers and the Nueva Mortera in Santa Lucia and of course the historic wrecks in Havana, there is a multitude to choose from.

With single, twin and even triple centre dive holidays available, at surprisingly low cost, the combination of the superb diving and excellent hotels, beaches and culture, Cuba really has to be a 'must do' destination on every divers list.

More destinations throughout the rest of the Caribbean and Indian Ocean will follow shortly, but wherever we go, rest assured that the levels of quality you expect will come as standard.
