The Uk Diving Academy is built upon four core pillars, with sustainability and conservation being central to our business and winning us our PADI Eco Dive Centre Award. When we started Uk Diving Academy we had one goal in mind. We wanted to create something different. We found ourselves asking what happened to the adventure in diving? 

The thrill of exploring a new place for the first time. The passion to dive sites, and finding marine life that many have never seen before, while still being able to protect our oceans.
